I don’t know anyone who absolutely loves meetings.
I’ve never heard anyone ever say the phrase, “I don’t have enough meetings each week.”
I’ve never met anyone who felt more productive because they attended more meetings.
If anything, I’ve heard countless people say, “I was in meetings all day and didn’t get any ‘real’ work done.”
So what’s the solution to this meeting dilemma? It isn’t to stop having meetings. Some of them can be critical to the success of a project.
The answer is to have shorter meetings.
Or, rather, to meet like a sea captain.
