    I recently watched a TED Talk from David Grady called "How to save the world (or at least yourself) from 5 Strategies for Better Team Meetingsbad meetings." It's hilarious, and it hits on some real pain points that we all experience with poorly run meetings that suck our time and energy as well as prevent us from getting the real work done.
