Meetings

Some folks are going to eight hours of meeting a day. Many of them have meetings to prepare for meetings. If you are serious about solving this problem and interested in getting things done you need to ask some serious questions:

- Why am I here?
- Why there are too many people in the room?
- Why is there a default length?

Perhaps this meeting-meter which calculate the cost of a meeting can give a guilt zone for those folks.

I like it. I regularly ask my neighbor in meetings, "What do you think this is costing?".

I'll try it...

How about putting it up on your screen while talking to someone you'd just as soon get rid of as soon as possible?
