How to use this template

Most adults can focus their attention and stay engaged for 10-18 minutes at a time. We all default to 30-minute meetings because of the way they fit nicely, back-to-back on our calendar. But then we get frustrated when we have no time to run to the restroom or we discover we've yet to drink our first cup of coffee.

The solution? Limit your meetings to 18 minutes. This will give you padding for the inevitable run over and still leave you time to take care of yourself and prepare for your next meeting.
