This is a simple mantra that is going to change the way you attend every meeting and every conference for the rest of your life.
You probably don’t have to be there. No gun held to your head, after all. So, why are you spending the time?
A simple but powerful question. Use your time wisely and if you go, make the best and most of your time there.
If there isn’t a good reason, go home. If there is, then do something. Loud, now and memorable. Productive too, please.
A side note.
I like Seth Godin’s blog and his style with fairly short posts, 200-300 words.
