Do you have a decision?

Write that at every meeting room’s exit.

We hardly take meetings seriously. It has become a casual affair where we sit, debate, make our point, bloat ourselves and come out without deciding anything. What is the point? It is such a productivity drainer.

Before going to your next meeting ask yourselves “What is the decision I am looking forward to come out with?”


Even before ensuring that the meeting is decisive ensure that it is really really required. “Getting Real” by 37signals puts this point lucidly in this essay.
