it's just time

Last night H read me an interesting statistic from a leadership development course she's taking: Each year, the average person will spend 912 hours in meetings. That's 38 days of your life you will never get back -- each year.

Case in point: I spent four hours this morning in a strategic planning meeting that could have been completed in one hour. I'm not joking or making this up. Quite literally, we waited 3 hours for any semblance of a call to action. And even when it came, it was more of a gimping sort of cackle than it was a call.

My eyes are open to the possibilities.
