  • IF you're stuck in an annoying and irrelevancy-filled two-hour meeting with Norm, and
  • IF you sit at the far end of the conference table, and
  • IF you have a smartphone, and
  • IF you have either wifi or a data plan you don't mind using, and
  • IF you're near retirement and really don't give a damn that you don't look very engaged in the subject of the meeting
THEN you can accomplish a remarkable amount of research on your novel rewrite.

Yes. I used to get a lot of work done in meetings. Mostly pen and paper work (this was a long time ago) but same principle.

Meetings can work. But they need a purpose (agenda?), and someone who is prepared to be forceful and keep things on track and cut people off (chairman?), and decisions have to made and written down so everyone knows who should be doing what and then someone has to follow-up and make sure that whoever has done whatever, and if they haven't then there must be public shaming in front of the library. So often none of this is done, and the main goal seems to be get many people in a room and bore them rigid.

I have many strong feelings about meetings.
