Making meetings much more efficient

Water. Yes, it’s that simple. There needs to be a rule that whoever convenes a meeting be required to drink water. Half a liter of water when the meeting begins and another half a liter every half hour thereafter. That simple rule will motivate the meeting organizer to find closure quickly – and the exit.

The idea is actually not half bad, but diuretic pills should be served along with the water to speed up the process.
