In episode 252 of Journey to $100 Million, Erik talks about how he wants our meetings here at Array Digital to be shorter and better planned.
Erik noticed that when we have meetings scheduled, we tend to stick to the duration of the calendar invitation regardless of how much time we really need. Instead, moving forward Erik wants us to set all meetings to half an hour long. In doing this, he hopes that the meetings will kick off on time, an agenda will be created, and if team members only have 30 minutes of time, they will be more organized for the meeting.
Stop wasting time, just book the meeting, get in, make a decision, and get out. You cannot press forward if you are sitting in meetings for hours with six team members debating ideas. Keep your meetings short, keep them focused, and get people back to work!
