SOME WISDOM FROM ELON MUSK
OK, unless you want to be a new home sales agent or a construction supervisor, there aren't a lot of new jobs this week. I'm happy to run Lennar's forward planner, Adams' division manager, and Caldwell's development manager positions again next week. Somebody please help them out and apply.
Elon Musk recently shared an email to his staff at Twitter about meetings and productivity that I thought we could all benefit from. The leaked email image was unreadable, but Musk's main points:
- Avoid large meetings
- Leave a meeting if you’re not contributing
- Forget the chain of command
- Be clear, not clever
- Ditch frequent meetings
- Use common sense
He also reminds us that we can resolve most issues without a meeting. You can see a full unroll of Musk's views on productive meetings on this Twitter thread. The guy's worth $200 billion - it's worth the read. Happy Thanksgiving.
