49. Default to 30-minute meetings. Whoever invented the one-hour default in calendar software wasted millions of people-hours. Most subjects can be handled in 30 minutes. Many can be handled in 15 minutes–especially if everyone who attends knows the meeting is only going to last 15 minutes.
Don’t be a slave to calendar tool defaults. Only schedule an hour if you absolutely know you’ll need it.

How could this clarify my Reality?
How could this benefit if added to my Disciplines?
Who needs to hear this?
