Good and bad meetings

  • Done right, meetings provide an excellent structure for getting work done, making decisions, and moving projects forward. 
  • Done incorrectly, meetings keep you from focusing on your most important priorities and are a complete waste of your time.

Eliminate

  • Don’t schedule meetings: The answer to every issue or to moving ahead every project isn’t scheduling a meeting. 
  • Don’t attend meetings: You don’t have to accept every meeting invite you receive. Go to and be fully present at meetings where you have something to contribute or learn.
  • Don’t agree to meetings requests from people you don't know: If you think a meeting is necessary, schedule it yourself.

Reduce

  • Reduce frequency: Not all meetings need to be weekly. Reduce them to however often you need to stay on track.
  • Reduce length: Your default could be 30 minutes or 45 minutes.
  • Reduce drive-by meetings: Informal meetings can be valuable. But they can also be overwhelming when they take up the very limited amount of time you have between scheduled meetings.

Streamline

  • Have an agenda: Make sure that no meeting wanders aimlessly without clarity about why you’re meeting and what you’re hoping to accomplish. 
  • Have a facilitator: He can explain the agenda, keep the conversation flowing in the right direction and make sure that everyone has clarity on the next steps by the end of the meeting. 
  • Have an out: This could mean scheduling back-to-back meetings or scheduling something at a time where you or the other person attending has to leave for something specific like catching a train.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
