Group of people chatting and having a laugh

A couple of months ago, right before Christmas, our family lost our mountain bikes.

By ‘lost’ I mean a thief came to our house in the middle of the night and took them while we were sleeping.

I cannot explain to you the feeling. Injustice. Anger. Disappointment.

At work, I get to meet with our wonderful clients most weeks. Our clients are all shapes and sizes, from small private software companies to large government agencies. One thing they have in common: meetings.

Meetings, of course, are extraordinarily important. It’s where ideas germinate. It’s where information is shared. It’s where culture is nurtured.

Over the years I have observed the size and length of meetings grow. Like our appetite for digital services, they seem to be stealing more and more of our time.
