My calendar’s nearly empty. And I’m happy.

I prefer to create systems that don’t require calls or calendar entries. Systems that feed into each other are self-regulating and make it easy for everyone to work asynchronously.

If you do have a meeting scheduled, ask:

  • Do I really need to join?
  • Will this meeting move things forward?
  • What is the agenda?
  • Is this just a meeting to have a meeting?
  • Could this meeting be canceled and resolved with a quick email?

Chances are you can drop out of 80% of meetings and focus on something more productive.

Go ahead. Kill a meeting. Save your sanity.
