H/T to Fast Company for this.
I try to stay out of meetings as much as possible. I find them brutal and these ‘types’ in this video are immediately recognizable.
If a meeting is inevitable, I propose these three things:
- Follow Jason Fried’s advice and don’t have the meeting in the first place.
- Follow Seth Godin’s advice and do not ask this question
- If you must have a meeting, plan, plan, plan it well. As the great John Wooden once said:
Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
