I was once invited to attend a meeting to plan a meeting to schedule meetings. This was a real request from a Deloitte consultant to me while on a project in New York. I declined that invite and every single other meeting invite he sent. I wish I could say that was the last wasteful meeting invite I ever received but anyone who has worked in Corporate America knows that meetings, whether meaningful or not, are all too common. They are death by a thousand paper cuts. The deluge of meetings on my calendar eventually got me to think, how do you define a reasonable cadence between meetings? This thought lead me further down to how do you define a meaningful delta between occurrences for anything done repeatedly?
