Meetings are likely the biggest time waster in your working life. But in your whole life, the biggest time waster must be worrying. Not living in the present.
Seneca says it better than I,
“But what is greater madness than to be tortured by the future and not to save your strength for the actual suffering, but to invite and bring on wretchedness? If you cannot be rid of it, you ought at least to postpone it. Will you not understand that no man should be tormented by the future?”
Worrying is the poison of the mind. Mindfulness and habits are the antidote.
