Take a trip around the world and never even leave the farm!
I think the days of spending more time online than watching TV are already here, at least for me and most I know.
“Remember the good old days spent gathered around the TV for some major cultural event, like the Olympics, the Super Bowl or the last episode of Seinfeld? According to a new report, those days are officially over.”
We’ll be watching tablets instead of TVs.
Everybody spends too much time in meetings, we all agree. And yet we continue to do it.
Want to make more of your time in meetings? Here’s some alternatives to the traditional “guide to better meetings” literature.
(From “Barking up the Wrong Tree”)
Doodle. Yep, it actually improves your concentration.
Have the meeting standing up! It’ll almost certainly take less time than with comfy chairs.
Sit in the middle, not at the head of the table. You’ll be viewed as the most influential there.
Have the meeting at 3PM on Tuesday. Avoid the beginning and end of the day.
Serving coffee? OK for the women. For the men, not so much.
Finally, and importantly, remember that email tends to turn even the nicest people into jerks.
