“Meetings are indispensable when you don’t want to do anything.”
– John Kenneth Galbraith
We’ve now found out during Covid that in person meetings are not necessary. Actually, most of us knew that from sitting in them and wishing we were dead or anything to not be there.
I do know a few people that love meetings and live for them. I think they don’t want to work, or it’s the place they think they can actually wield power. I avoid those people so I don’t have to go to their meetings.
I’ve written before why Meetings are a waste of time, and how to avoid them.
As an introvert, I loathe meetings. My rule was that if there were anymore than 5 people nothing was going to get done.
Avoid them at all cost. They are a time suck and we’ve now proven that you can get work done without them
