i think you'll find it's quite different because it has one on one in the title of the meeting.

So, since we haven't done it in a while and HR keeps reminding me, I'm booking a quick meeting to define together a new bunch of OKRs to completely ignore for the next couple years or so

what action items are you working on this week -making sweet computer love
where do you need help - the floppy disk drive is a bit narrow
how are you feeling these days - frustrated
what is your top priority - cumming into my computer (I thought this was YOSPOS??)
what are you career goals - Same as your career goals, probably.
is there anything that i've missed that we should discuss - https://medium.com/@blairacarroll/human-computer-interaction-yea-i-find-my-computer-sexy-too-c741c95c9e0b

One of the biggest perks of being a senior level person is that I can just leave meetings when they start getting pointless, also lots of other senior guys I work with do the same. As a result our meetings normally last no more then 15-20min. It's great.

Wheeee!


i absolutely hear you that we are "wasting everyone's time with loads of worthless meetings" and that is something i think we should sit down and take some time evaluate in a separate session
maybe next week we can pull in some of the other stakeholders and see how we can best make sure we are are adding and spending our time deliberately. can you write up Jira ticket on that so we dont forget?
