The mere presence of a meeting on a calendar does not imply that the meeting has happened. Even if it started at the right time, with the right people, each one of them sharing some words, cheering, laughing, nodding, moving on. That still does not mean that the meeting has happened.

Meetings should inspire action, and yet how often does that happen in reality? How many meetings do you need before you actually get something done?

Consider spending half of the time you have scheduled for meetings tomorrow in a conversation instead. Turn to someone who could help you get unstuck, ask thoughtful questions, relax and listen. Then spend the remaining time applying what you learned to what you are doing.

Get going.
