I have heard that Warren Buffett does not schedule meetings far in advance. If you want a meeting with him, you contact his office the day before you'd like to meet and then it will be determined whether he'll meet with you.
When I heard of this, my first reaction was one of intense envy. My second, more measured, reaction was that if you are Warren Buffett, you can get away with such rules.
Nonetheless, a good question when setting a meeting way off yonder in the oh-so-distant future is: "As the meeting date approaches, will I feel happiness or dread?"
