It's time for you. Can't juststops big ask question of the day. Welcome to you. Can't just stopthe place for quietly stubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and Greens. After encountering hundredsof high achieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers, I've discovered that many timestheir 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 toreach your goals. And now for today's question. How can I reduce thetime I spend in meetings? Holy Crap, there's nothing worse than wasting time andunnecessary meeting. And how many unnecessary meetings have we found ourselves in throughoutour life? Way More than we ever wanted to. I can look backat some of my meetings when I used to be in corporate and just like, what a waste of time, oh... God, get me out ofhere. So how can we get rid of some of these? Even evenif you're, you know, working for yourself, working from home, whateverit is, we're still spending time them and meetings that we probably don't needto 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 andmeetings? How can you identify what an important meeting is? I guess onegood thing you could come up with today is kind of some sort of somesort of parameters that could you could run a meeting through to see if it'sworth two hours of your life or an hour of your life or whatever itis. I mean, if you start thinking about what an hour of yourlife 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 apotential 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 messageor a loom video or something like that, instead of send spending an hour ina 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.
