Meetings

Ultra-productive people avoid meetings as much as humanly possible. 

A meeting could drag on forever, so when you must attend a meeting, inform everyone that you want to stick to the intended schedule. This sets a clear limit that motivates everyone to be more focused and efficient.

No frequent meetings

No frequent meetings

Get rid of regular meetings unless you are dealing with a pressing matter. Once the issue is resolved, the meeting frequency should drop.

Ask yourself how urgent the need behind the meeting is and if you can instead reduce the frequency and communicate via email or group chat.

Shrink meetings

Limit the number of people in any meeting to eight or fewer, unless the meeting is informational.

Ensure that your meetings result in action items, a timeline for each action item, and one person who is responsible.
