Meetings

This sums up pretty nicely what I don’t miss about having office meetings:

A study conducted by the University of Minnesota found that the amount and length of meetings correlate with “negative effects” (burnout, anxiety, and depression) on its participants.

Brainstorm sessions on the other hand can be very useful, but can, assuming all participants are decent typists, be just as easily done online. Sometimes it’s actually better, if that means that they are forced to consider what they’re about to contribute before they hit enter.
