Three cures for long meetings:

  1. Projecting the image of a 4-foot-tall timer on the wall, which tracks the time left for each agenda item (Google).
  2. Holding a standing meeting in a room with no chairs.
  3. Asking everyone to check their handheld devices and laptops at the door, so the agenda is everyone’s singular focus (design firm Adaptive Path).
