We’ve all heard a horror story or two from friends who have had terrible experiences in hotels. Traveling is already difficult and stressful. Living a hotel horror story won’t help.
“I have an open door policy so don’t hesitate to come talk with me.”
If you’re like me, you’ve been tiptoeing through life just to reach death safely. Yep, I said it. I’ve been tiptoeing through and leading a boring life.
I’m not proud of it. In fact, it’s quite disheartening to admit. Unfortunately, I’m not alone. Too many of us tiptoe through life making sure nothing too exciting or dangerous comes along that could accelerate the inevitable.
Wow, what a boring way to live!
Is doodling during a business meeting a good idea? Doodlers appear to not be paying attention. They sit there, head down and just doodle away like a meeting is not even taking place.
Ask former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about what doodling in a meeting can be perceived as. She was “caught” doodling during a 2012 United Nations Security Council meeting. She disguised her doodling as taking notes but in the end, she was doodling.
How can someone doodle during such an important, high-profile meeting?
Is there anything worse in corporate life than a day full of meetings? I can’t think of many.
Back in the early days of business, meetings had to occur in face-to-face settings. People would travel the country to attend such meetings.
Now, in the internet age, we do more electronically than we do face-to-face. In some respects, that’s a good thing. It definitely creates efficiency. In other respects, we’ve lost the personal touch that business used to be built on.
While meetings still happen (and some days even one is too many if it’s not facilitated correctly), many of them are now held as conference calls.
