In this recent video posted on BusinessMadeSimple.com, Donald Miller explained that he likes to eat lunch alone because that’s when he gets his best ideas. LINK
I buy that. I rarely have business lunches because I’ve found that they are like basketball games. All the important action happens in about 5 minutes. It’s much more efficient to have 15-minute meetings in my office. What’s even better than those short meetings in my office are Zoom meetings. Zoom (and like technologies) is amazingly good. You can see all the participants. And when someone speaks, their face enlarges – drawing your attention like it does when someone speaks at a “live” meeting.
