The challenge of meetings and calendars is a tough nut to crack. We want shorter meetings, but scheduling people can be so hard that we often have to make meetings longer to make them worthwhile. Which makes scheduling meetings harder. Which means we have to go even longer with our meetings. It’s a vicious cycle.
The idea of goal scheduling is interesting, but you’re eventually going to have to schedule some sort of meeting to support the goal. And then we’re right back where we started.
