Seven things that are more productive than a meeting without an agenda


“We’re too busy to have meetings with agendas.” – a team leader during a training

Here are seven things that will be more productive than having a meeting without an agenda (or having an agenda but not following it):

  1. Going for a walk
  2. Going bowling
  3. Going to see a movie
  4. Getting your hair cut
  5. Washing your car
  6. Organizing your pens
  7. Moving your paper clips one by one from one side of the room to the other…then moving them back

If you’re investing everyone’s time, attention and energy in a meeting:

  1. Have an agenda.
  2. Send it to everyone at least one day before the meeting.
  3. Follow it.

Or better yet, go for a walk.
