How to end a meeting
I know the answer now. With many thanks to the original source David Perell:
End meetings with five minutes of silent writing time.
Answer the following questions:
- What are my top takeaways?
- What are the next steps?
- What questions do I still have?
Resist the urge to jump to the next activity.
I am guilty of finishing a meeting, promising to get something done and trusting that I’ll remember it. I often forget. So my new thing is that before I leave any meeting room, the details of what I need to do will either be in a message to a delegate, or in my To Do app.
