Consider who you would ask to get an important task done. There are three choices. Your candidates live in three different worlds, Fantasy Land, Tomorrow Land and Adventure Land. Here are their backgrounds:
- Candidate #1. He lives in Fantasy Land. He's available for an immediate consultation. He's full of ideas. Some call him a dreamer. His shortcoming is that he hates deadlines.
- Candidate #2. He resides in Tomorrow Land. He's willing to take on your assignment but he can't work on it today. In fact, today is never a good day for this prospect. Odds are that he will ask for more time as the deadline approaches.
- Candidate #3. He's from Adventure Land. His calendar is always full. This prospect's unassuming Timex triathlon watch is revealing. Mr. Adventure Land loves the thrill of the roller coaster ride, timed to the second. He is punctual and always arrives at least ten minutes prior to a meeting. If you attempt to call him or email him, he may not immediately respond because he often blocks out time for other tasks.
