My Hours in Meetings Doubled After my Promotion

In early February 2019 I was promoted and put in charge of our Marketing Analytics Team at Workfront. Though it has been an exciting new challenge, it has come with a cost. Before the promotion, I was averaging about 10 hours per week in meetings. After the promotion, that average went up to 20 hours! In order to understand how I am spending my time the last year, I pulled all my Google Calendar data from the API and built this visualization.

The amount of time I am spending in meetings is only increasing! Even though this is a natural thing to occur with a promotion to a team manager, I want to continue to monitor this and make sure I am not spending all of my time in meetings and still have time to work on individual projects. We will see how the next year turns out. Here is the code if you want to create your own.
