Think about what the meeting is for.
Meetings are important for getting work done and projects underway.
Problems need to be solved and decisions need to be made in order to carry out a job or project.
If I can solve the problem or make the decision by yourself, there is no problem.
However, if I cannot solve the problem or make a decision by yourself, I need to ask or discuss with others.
I am lucky if other people already know the answer.
Most problems, however, are not easy to find the answer to.
Perhaps easy problems can be easily found on the Internet.
Difficult problems are harder to find answers for, so you need to discuss them with others.
In a discussion, I need to focus on the objective and conclusion.
Chatting is not very effective and productive.
Before any discussion or meeting, an agenda should be created.
