So far working remote has been great. I’ve actually been really productive (maybe even more so as I have no distractions) and able to communicate with clients the way I normally would. However, I’ve hit my first snag – time zones and ical/entourage calendars.

I’ve been traveling so much lately I’m not sure what time zone I’m in and my poor ical/entourage is trying to catch up. I’m taking a ton of meetings on the fly and I always have to double check to make sure I’ve got them scheduled as the correct time. the math get’s crazy due to the variables. Here’s a great example:

1. The client is on the East Coast (EST)
2. My development partner is in Texas (CST)
3. I’m in Idaho (GMT) but will be flying to San Diego the day of the meeting (PST)
4. And I’m told by developer the meeting is at 1:00 pm.

You tell me what time I’m supposed to put into my calendar!  

Fortunately I’ve been on top of it and haven’t had anything go astray. However, I’ve had some close calls and this is definitely something to consider when working remotely, or building a remote team. Everyone needs to be on the same page with time. 

Well, I’ve got to go… I have a meeting, at least I think I do.
