Juggling my schedule is difficult. In this short week, I have a panel meeting, 3 pretrials, a status conference, an evidentiary hearing, multiple client meetings, and we start jury selection. There’s a telephone conference with my accountant. And another one with a vendor. Those are just my professional obligations.
On the personal side there is getting children to school and daycare. There’s soccer practice on Thursday. And I have a doctor’s appointment.
Another work week.
Time is valuable. To me. And to my clients.
A month ago I started using x.ai. x.ai is a scheduling bot. It’s artificial intelligence that interacts with my schedule and someone who needs to meet with me. It is really cool. My assistant’s name is “Amy” – “Amy Ingram” to be exact or “A.I.” for short.
I get an email from a client saying “let’s talk”. I email Amy and the client and say “Amy please schedule a call with the client as soon as possible”. And then “Amy” contacts the client and in a very human tone schedules the call in my calendar. This works for any meeting, lunch, or call.
This allows me to schedule meetings very quickly. And streamlines client communication.
I use x.ai professional edition. In my month of using it, the only downside is that scheduling group meetings of more than 2 people can result in a lot of emails from Amy to guests as she goes back and forth between them. But one to one it is a great service.
