Freelancers: how to spend less time in crappy meetings

Do you feel frustrated at crappy, time-wasting meetings?

Here are three rules you can follow to make your meetings more actionable and less sucky:

Rule #1: Every meeting must have an agenda

If it doesn’t have an agenda, it isn’t a meeting.

Rule #2: Every meeting must have a meeting owner

If it doesn’t have a defined meeting owner, it isn’t a meeting.

Rule #3: The meeting owner should create the agenda

The meeting owner should spend at least as much time writing the agenda for the meeting as is scheduled for the meeting.

45-minute meeting? Spend 45-minutes working on the agenda.


If you follow these three rules, you’ll notice your meetings will be less sucky and more productive.

Excelsior!
