Anthony, great post! Another management myth that deserves to be busted along with multi-tasking is the notion that managers need to always have an open door to their staff. For years, I tried to practice this. But if you allow yourself to be constantly interrupted by people popping in and out of your office, your productivity is bound to suffer. I would recommend managers setting some boundaries with their staff and colleagues as to when “the doctor is in.” If you establish a schedule, you will actually be a more effective manager of your time — and theirs.

Thanks, Jay. That's not a bad idea. Not bad at all!
