Zoom fatigue is real. But the problem isn’t Zoom. It’s that your meetings are terrible.

Be honest: when was the last time you declined a meeting when you didn’t have another conflict on your calendar? The truth is, unless we have a conflict, we reflexively accept almost every single meeting invitation. We do this because it makes us feel important, we fear missing out, we believe our attendance is required, or we haven’t empowered others. Too many meetings are the corporate equivalent of a pacifier. Meetings should be an event, not our default work mode.
