Especially "avoiding meetings"!😂
Or it will happen to you, what it happened to me with 4-hour daily meetings.


Oh gosh...I have had a few 4-hour and 6-hour meetings :(...They are terrible.


Pro tip - count up how many people are tied up in that, find out the "billable rate" the company uses (even non-agency companies often have such a number) -- or barring that, guesstimate the average hourly rate per person in the meeting -- and multiply the two, multiplied by the number of hours per meeting, then by some interval (month, quarter, year).

Then present that number to the bean counters and manager over whoever is scheduling such meetings.

Most people don't like it when someone is spending thousands of dollars a month tying people up on things that are questionably productive. ;)
