I loath being summoned for nothing. When one asks someone for help, one should let that person know what he/she is to do, how long it takes. One should not assume that person knows what is on one’s mind, nor make that person wait to be attended to, only to discover, when he/she has waited long enough, that he/she is not really needed. If one’s time is precious, one should also be aware that other people’s time is also precious. If one is giving priority to something, one should also be aware that other people may have other priorities. Inefficiency not only hinders one from achieving the best, it also deters people from being supportive.
