Start by thinking that your brain can only be 100% focused for time spans of 45 minutes. This is the result of a research of Microsoft about the use of Microsoft teams. If you have a limited time of focus, accept a maximum of 3 topics to discuss, avoid any other topic to interfere inthe meeting (We call them squirrels).

Set the goal of the meeting and act accordingly.Meetings can be informative, brainstorms, problem solving or decision oriented.
