Elon Musk limits meetings at Tesla to only 6 people - and says employees should 'walk out' if nothing's getting accomplished

No big meetings

Don't hold large meetings, except if they are providing value to everyone. Then keep the meeting short.

A typical meeting should involve no more than 4 - 6 people. Before you send out your next invite list ask: Who on this list will add (or receive) the most value? Is there anyone who doesn't need to be there?

Key Ideas

No big meetings

Don't hold large meetings, except if they are providing value to everyone. Then keep the meeting short.

A typical meeting should involve no more than 4 - 6 people. Before you send out your next invite list ask: Who on this list will add (or receive) the most value? Is there anyone who doesn't need to be there?

No added value

If you are invited to a meeting but realize that you do not add value, leave.

This advice might at first seem shocking, but if the whole team can view this rule as beneficial and use it tactfully, it can help build authenticity and transparency in an organization.

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.

How we think about risk and opportunity

It’s impossible to think about risk and opportunity without a reference point. And ours is at most incomplete (if not totally wrong).

Everything we think about risk and opportunity is shaped by our own specific situation and personal experience. So everybody has a view of risk shaped by narrow experiences but applied to the broad world.

Long-term and short-term thinking

Long-term thinking is difficult to put in action because the long run is a collection of short runs that have to be handled, displayed, and used as information to gauge whether a long-term reward still exists.

Short-term thinking can be the only way you’ll survive long enough to experience long-term results.
