In just about every business, home businesses included, there will be meetings. If you have contractors or employees, you will surely be meeting with them. Or it may be meetings with clients, potential clients, bankers, suppliers, etc. Have you ever found yourself in a meeting that seems to just go on forever?
It’s amazing how often meetings are set with a start time, but no projected end time. Setting up a meeting without establishing an end time is a recipe for time management disaster. Meetings like that can end up chewing up a good part of the day. Even day-long planning meetings need some kind of scheduled break times and a final end time.
So if you agree to a meeting, try to get the other parties to agree to an end time.
