IS MEETING NECESSARY?

Unnecessary MeetingThere’s no worse misuse of time than unnecessary meetings. Yes, those meetings that have no clear purpose, meetings that are just to pass information, standing meetings, lunch break meetings and the let’s catch up or let’s see meetings. Meetings which accomplish nothing and could have been handled on the phone, through an email or countless other ways in which technology has provided for us.

Sometimes it’s a repetition of something that has already been discussed on the phone. This makes me wonder why the person requested for the meeting in the first place, when I could have spent my time more productively. When it’s pointed out that the issue could have been handled without us having to meet, they say “there’s nothing like seeing face to face.” Well after a few experiences like that, i decided to politely decline such meetings.

Meeting

For me needless meetings are irritating, just like the unsolicited messages (spam messages in my opinion) telecom service providers regularly send to our phones. If the purpose of the meeting can be achieved without holding a meeting or if it’s purpose isn’t worth the time and resources the meeting will consume. Then please don’t call for one or agree to attend such meetings.
