I find it extremely frustrating when someone books an hour for a meeting by default, but yet they only have about 10 minutes of material they need to cover. Instead of playing havoc with your (and others) calendar, you can set your default meeting length to something shorter. Here’s how…

If you stay focused in your meetings, 30 minutes is often enough time to accomplish what you need to have done, and you’ll have more time to do real work.
