We Fill Up the Available Time, So Cut the Available Time

Do you spend too much time in meetings or doing “stuff?” Then cut the amount of time you allocate to them. By doing this, you’ll get straight to the point. To make it effective, practice Bush Time (as in President George W. Bush). President Bush starts each meeting on time and ends each meeting precisely at the scheduled time–even if somebody is in mid-sentence. Be polite, but be punctual.
