Ever been in a meeting where the only thing you say is “Thanks!” after coming off mute 29 minutes in? It’s the worst!

“Time is precious. Time is money. Or it means more time for online quoting…or searching the internet to learn how to make one of those viral tortilla wraps.” Hey, it was pretty good!

“When thinking about if that meeting could have been an email, consider these three questions:”
  1. Has anyone mentioned they have a really busy day or week?
  2. Is it valuable to start an email thread and let people think and respond to the topic first?
  3. Is it another meeting about the chili cook-off? 

Ah, yes, the chili cook-off. A tradition as old as time itself. The office, the smiles, the beans. Does it get any better than that? 

But seriously, before sending out that meeting invite ask yourself if it could be an email and try to take into consideration what others have on their plates (not talking chili anymore).
