Never have a meeting where two pizzas couldn’t feed the entire group.

This is Jeff Bezos’ (Amazon) ‘two pizza rule’ and his secret to productive meetings.  If the goal of your meeting is to be productive, you need to focus on less – not more.  Meaning, don’t invite more people than it would take to feed with two pizzas.

White Space

We all need “white space” in our lives. White space allows us to think, be creative, be strategic, focus on what counts, do something fun, laugh, cry or a combination of all these things.

I usually factor “white space” into a project because it provides you or the project manager the opportunity to pause, reflect and tailor actions before things go too far in the wrong direction.

White space is not only reflection. White space is planning, thinking, future looking, story building time that allows us as human beings to remember we are human. Check for mistakes, celebrate a success, write that thank you letter or start that side project you have always wanted to do.

White space makes us human. Without white space we run the risk of becoming machines. e3dc9e58e2c5faad2871843721955e3d
