It's time for you. Can't just stops big ask question of the day. Welcome to you. Can't just stop the place for quietly stubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and Greens. After encountering hundreds of high achieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers, I've discovered that many times their impact comes from the questions they ask as much as the actions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a question each and every day to reach your goals. And now for today's question. How can I reduce the time I spend in meetings? Holy Crap, there's nothing worse than wasting time and unnecessary meeting. And how many unnecessary meetings have we found ourselves in throughout our life? Way More than we ever wanted to. I can look back at some of my meetings when I used to be in corporate and just like, what a waste of time, oh... God, get me out of here. So how can we get rid of some of these? Even even if you're, you know, working for yourself, working from home, whatever it is, we're still spending time them and meetings that we probably don't need to spend time in, and and that's time you're never ever getting back. So how can you reduce these how can you get rid of this time and meetings? How can you identify what an important meeting is? I guess one good thing you could come up with today is kind of some sort of some sort of parameters that could you could run a meeting through to see if it's worth two hours of your life or an hour of your life or whatever it is. I mean, if you start thinking about what an hour of your life is really worth you, I think you'll start attending a lot fewer meetings. So what parameters could you come up with? It you could run a potential meeting through and say I'm going to...

...go or I'm not going to go, or maybe somewhere in between. Maybe there's something we could do differently. Maybe we could just do a slack thread or we could do an email message or a loom video or something like that, instead of send spending an hour in a meeting that none of us will ever get back. All right, can you tell that this really bugs me? Don't like to waste time in meetings. See You tomorrow.
