Seth Godin resolves to skip meetings ...
Today's resolution: skip at least one meeting every day for the next two weeks. Watch what happens.

Result One: "Where is that Seth Godin guy? I suppose if he can't be bothered to show up and pitch his ideas then he doesn't want our money."

Result Two: "Well, crud. If the boss won't come to his own staff meeting what the stink am I doing here? Let's knock off early and hit the pub."

Some meetings are bogus and time-wasting. Some are not. The fault is not with the idea of 'meetings'.

Meetings are tools and can be used for enormous good or endless evil. It's up the primates in charge to decide which.
