Have you ever read Tim Ferriss’ “The 4-Hour Work Week”? One takeaway from that book really stood out: Avoid meetings at all cost. Even if it is your own business, let others do the meetings while you get on with your work. Tim Ferriss writes that he always makes himself unavailable for meetings, simply because they are a giant waste of time.
I can relate to this and only ever attend meetings which have a clear agenda and desired outcome. Brainstorming get-togethers are not for me, especially not group sessions. Which leads me nicely on to this infographic from SalesCrunch, about how much money is watsted in offices during pointless meetings.
