Acknowledge their time is valuable and don’t waste any of it. This means if you want a meeting with someone successful and busy, always state what you hope to get out of it. Don’t just ask for time with no purpose or goal. Successful people don’t do “coffee dates” or “lunch” just for fun- they have things to do!
You can show appreciation for their time in advance by using Giftology tactics, like doing something crazy to get their attention that shows you know them. You never want to take their time for granted, because it’s more valuable than money.
