Ever feel like meetings eat up your whole day? Clean up your calendar in January by only accepting ones with a clear agenda.

I hate unnecessary meetings!  Here's to less of them in 2017.

I do agree. 

 

Personally, I would rather be actually doing something versus talking about doing something. 

 

I shape the meeting ahead of time by going over what the purpose is, what we plan to complete, what I am expected to do, and what they are expected to do. This clears up any issues before attending. Next, I allocate a certain amount of time for the meeting and then I close it out and move on.

 

By doing this, both parties are appreciated more, and my client sees that I am organized and professional... which helps throughout the entire relationship. 

 

All the Best,

 

James

Amen for that one! We don't have any time for meetings without a purpose.

Oh, good one!

 

Here is mine: Stop chasing professional news as they come in. Allot a time to review when the day is done. Important stuff will seep in through others if it truly needs to be considered immediately.

Julia - That could be helped if writers would stop "rewriting" the wheel.  It's pretty rare that I find an article that has a nugget of NEW information in it.

Exactly, Shanee! Takes time to go over all those "news" to find out in the end that there isn't really anything new there. Gotta start optimizing that effort Smiley Happy
