Buck The Default 30- Or 60-Minute Meeting; Think Shorter!

We’ve mentioned Parkinson’s Law—work expands to fill the allotted time—already. Well, just as it applies to you individually, it also applies to meetings. You know the default “time blocks” for these: 30 or 60 minutes. But are all discussions so equal that they fit into one of these two spans? Of course not. Reclaim time in your day by setting meetings in 5-minute increments (5, 10, 15, etc.). And make every one of those minutes count by sending a quick agenda beforehand.
