You probably have at least one meeting every week that’s REALLY not necessary . . . but everyone keeps on scheduling it anyway. So here’s a tip: Try to get it to be a Monday meeting. So it will get canceled more often.
Monday meetings are most likely to be canceled for people’s long weekends and for holidays.
There are three more federal holidays on Mondays this year: President’s Day, Memorial Day, and Labor Day.
In 2023, Juneteenth, Indigenous People’s Day/Columbus Day, and Christmas Day are also on Mondays. And the 4th of July is on a Tuesday, so lots of people will be taking off Monday.
So if your worst meeting is on a Monday, it’s just begging to get canceled every few weeks.
