Meetings!

There used to be a time when I was a kid, when i wanted to be a high-flying executive who would go from one meeting to another…

See my idea of a meeting back then was a board meeting in a board room with 10 – 12 people sitting around a huge table. Like a modern corporate version of an Arthurian Round Table.

Well now I am an executive, not a high-flyer, an executive nonetheless, and i realized that meetings meant people meeting no matter the number of participants!

So while I still dream of participating in a board meeting I have my share of meetings…

So funny huh…you have a certain idea of something when you are a kid and it turns out to be something totally different when you grow up.
