Meetings are not work. Work is work.

Anyone who knows me well knows that I attend a lot of meetings, but I also somewhat hate meetings. I know there is something wrong there, but I've been doing a lot of work trying to get better at leading meetings. The Modern Meeting Standard is a must read for anyone who attends or organizes meetings. Read it, you can read it in under an hour, I promise.

The folks at Liquid Church liked the book so much, that they made this funny little video explaining some of the main tenets. Watch, and enjoy.

We'd appreciate it if you'd forward this email to any friends who might be interested - everybody loves to get something for nothing.

I love their book Switch, and can only imagine that this is worth reading. It's certainly worth more than $0.00. Enjoy!
