I think it’s better to spend the ten minutes or so after a meeting pocketing a few flecks of gold than surrendering it all to the current of time.
How many people actually do this? Do you take a few moments after a meeting to look over any notes you made and try and distill them into actions? If you're like me, you probably rush back to your office and try to make up for lost time.
Meetings (in general) may not be the most enjoyable, productive or useful things but they are sometimes a necessity. If you're going to invest time and attention into a meeting, why not take a few minutes afterwards to distill your time and attention into useful action?
