Is it needed?
How many hours do yo work per week? How many meetings do you attend per day? Most of us have a packed schedule but busywork isn't efficient because feeling productive is different than being productive.
I usually ask myself three questions before I accept a meeting:
- Is it " needed" or just " nice" to have a conversation?
- What's the purpose of the meeting?
- Do we have a clear agenda for the meeting?
If I don't have the answer to any of the questions above, I say No to a meeting. When I focus only on the "right" things, I find more time in a day.
Don't exploit your time. Explore it.
