"Meetings are indispensable when you don't want to do anything."
John Kenneth Galbraith (1908-2007) Canadian-American economist
Meetings rightfully take a lot of heat for what they don't accomplish; many, maybe a majority, are of little to no use.
Remember this: A meeting is nothing more than two or more individuals getting together, each convinced they themselves are accomplished, worthy individuals. They may have their doubts about the others they are meeting with, but not themselves.
The "meeting" itself is not a thing, not a person, and should not be blamed for what comes of it.
If the meetings you attend are not producing results, take a moment to consider how much of that is on you.
