So you are the one behind the e-mail correspondence?
J: Yes. I am our filter to the world, I reply to e-mails, while Maciek answers phone calls. This division is related to our personalities. I’m not assertive enough when I am on the phone and I don’t like this way of negotiating, while Maciek is too harsh in e-mails, and on the phone he appears friendlier. Thus we adapted the way of communication to our characters.
Do you use a calendar or do you have any other system that you share?
M: Since I can remember, I have been using a Google calendar, where I write down everything. I have poor memory. I also like to take notes. Until recently, I thought it was quite unusual to take so many notes as I do, but over time I learned that there are many people similar to me. Anyway, even if it were otherwise, this system just works for me.
J: On the contrary, I keep a paper calendar. I write down my daily schedule and tasks to be done, but I also have access to Maciek’s virtual calendar, so I can see every idea that comes to Maciek’s mind and is saved.
M: Which is sometimes a bit embarrassing, because my notes pop up without any context in which they come to my mind, so Justyna suddenly gets a message, for example, that we are looking for a stick. There is no information for what session, where and why.
