My grad school advisor had a sign on her door that read:¶“Meetings: None of us are as dumb as all of us are together.”¶People notoriously hate meetings. Meetings get in the way of so-called “real work.” But...why?
Meetings can become time well spent. We must treat them like real work rather than a dedicated time to practice sleeping with our eyes open.

About Alexa Roman
Lead Product Designer @burner. Proving the value of design in revenue. Investing in the future of LA.
I recently finished a three-month trip where I was supposed to be resting. This was meant to be a counterbalance to several years of 100K+ miles of air travel and the dénouement that comes after the climax of hands-on parenting. And, I was really, really tired. While I was away, I was invited to contribute something to The Human In The Machine project and write about productivity. It was about all I got done while I was gone. I.

About Lisa Welchman
Author, Speaker, Consultant - All Things Digital (but especially Digital Governance)
Leave management, when organized poorly, turns into a very time-consuming process even in small teams. Requesting a leave, approving it, checking if there’ll be no deficit of resources for future work amounts, rearranging leave dates are time-wasting activities both for managers and regular employees.

For better or worse, our habits control large parts of our lives. Advertisers and businesses have been researching the science behind habits for decades and used this information to sell you products. It seems only fair that you, too, know how they work. By being deliberate with your habits, you can take more control over your life.

Time is the most valuable asset you have, and depending on how you use technology, it can either drastically hinder or improve your productivity. I’m very much a minimalist, and I’ve spent a lot of time getting down to the essentials. I’d like to share with you how I use technology to keep my life, goals, and time organized and efficient.
