A colleague emails you to say they will be very late to their meeting with you due to another meeting running behind. They had planned to use your meeting to get your thoughts on a report. They are asking if you can meet tomorrow morning instead. Your colleague says they need to complete the report by tomorrow, but you know the meeting with them will involve a lot of discussion and tomorrow is shaping up to be a busy day. You are still waiting to hear back from a senior colleague about whether they need you to do extra tasks tomorrow on top of what you are already assigned.

Out of these three, select the Most Effective and the Least Effective option:
1)Take time to plan all the work that will need doing tomorrow as much as possible to consider how you can schedule in the meeting.
2)Hold off on reviewing your schedule until you hear back from the senior colleague and update the colleague on your availability afterwards.
3) Suggest to your colleague to have a shortened meeting today as youa re unsure what your availability will be tomorrow.
