I just sat through an hour long meeting this week where the final decision was that we wouldn’t do anything.
To make matters worse, this wasn’t the first meeting on the topic. We had already wasted an hour and a half listening to everyone talk about the same nothing the week before and coming to the exact same conclusion. The room was packed, it’s crazy to think how much time and resources was wasted for those two pointless meetings.
