Home Office Rule No. 10: Regarding Meetings

My home office / new graphic design studio has been officially open for business for over six weeks now, so it’s fun to continue to share my home office rules, benefits, perks and incentives that contribute to a better work environment and creative space. The culture of a workplace is so important, so it’s nice to have some say in creating that culture.

Home Office Rule No. 10: Regarding Meetings.


Meetings can be so unproductive and frustrating especially when they last too long and get off topic or get bogged down with tangents, so the maximum time for meetings is 30 minutes. The point is Get.To.The.Point.

Doodling during meetings is encouraged at my home office. I find that doodling keeps me from daydreaming during meetings, even though that may sound like I’m not paying attention. Doodling helps keep my mind from wandering off to the beach.

Some offices have rules like hours, dress code, music, pets, contests and more, so I’ve made a fun list of rules and benefits for my very own office, but more like concepts or an atmosphere that encourages creativity and individuality. I want the home office to be creative, challenging, fun and open. Stay tuned for more fun rules and benefits!
