How on earth does ANYTHING get done?

No wonder your average entrepreneur so loathes meetings.

What was it Dave Berry said – organisations have meetings because they can’t actually masturbate?

Either they are poorly conceived (death by powerpoint, serial-sage-on-the-stage) or else they are adequately conceived and then abysmally executed (“facilitators” who take five minutes to tell you they won’t take up much time, it could all be done in about five sentences [tops]).

If it weren’t so tragic, it would be funny.

Eventually you learn to use the law of two feet, to grab what networking opportunities you can and get out before it all goes horribly wrong.

And so you “succeed” in spite of rather than because of the hosts.

So it goes.
