When does your workday end? If you work in a company in a 9-5 job, what you do at the end of the day can have a big impact upon what the next day will look like.  Let's peak inside a successful person's end of the day and compare to how you end your own day.

What do you do if you get a last minute phone call and you don't have time to deal with it in a good manner?

When do you usually have meetings, first thing in the morning or later in the day?  Are the meetings productive? 
What happens when the meeting goes too late and you need to go home?
What do you do when you go out the door? 
What time do you actually leave the office?  It is usually on time?
