I was rather pleased with myself on Monday after I convinced both of our kids to eat the carrots I’d packed in their summer camp lunches.
I packed the same carrots yesterday, only to discover that Tuesday’s carrots went untouched. Curious as to what changed, I asked both of them about it last night.
“You told me to eat them yesterday, but you didn’t tell me to eat them today,” was the identical response from both kids.
It’s interesting how often all of us need to be reminded of things that should seem obvious. Mamie Kanfer Stewart said on Monday’s episode that, “The most fundamental and essential element to a productive meeting is the desired outcome.” That’s not new information for most of us.
And yet, virtually none of the meetings I’ve been invited to in the past few months had a clearly stated outcome.
