    3. Do not agree to meetings or calls with no clear agenda or end time.

    If the desired outcome is defined clearly with a stated objective and agenda listing topics/questions to cover, no meeting or call should last more than 30 minutes. Request them in advance so you “can best prepare and make good use of the time together.”


    If the agenda is not clear, force people to make it clear. It’s easy to call a meeting, especially in large organizations. The person who wouldn’t otherwise be entrusted to spend $100 of the company’s money can easily call a meeting with 10 people and spend more than the $100 in time. Making the agenda clear and specific inserts friction into the process. Not only will meetings generally be better and shorter, there will also be fewer of them.

    Long ago, atoms in our bodies and all around us were in an explosion just like this. Also haha Eric Cantor. #Perspective

    This is an actual time-lapse video, comprising images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope over a four-year period, of the exploding star V8C8 Monocerotis.  It also represents GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s political career as of the June 10 Virginia primary.  (via Sploid)

    Grand Central

    by Billy Collins 

    The city orbits around eight million
    centers of the universe
    and turns around the golden clock
    at the still point of this place.
    Lift up your eyes from the moving hive
    and you will see time circling
    under a vault of stars and know
    just when and where you are.

    Your experimental design section is just a photo of a bird in a breathing mask and flight goggles. As your grant reviewer, I have to say: Do you want more money?
