I work in a large building so getting around between meetings requires a lot of walking. While I feel that I am always rushing to meetings, I noticed that many people move at a pretty slow pace (similar to window shopping at the mall with not a care in the world).
This always makes me wonder if they also work at that same pace that they move. I find it ironic that “everyone is swamped with work” when you talk to people yet I always see the same people casually moving from one place to another, sitting for lunch with a newspaper and the coffee line is always packed at all hours of the day.
Maybe I am making false conclusions but it is just something I think about as I determine the best strategy to pass people in the hallway to get to my next meeting.
