Headed to Lagos (Portugal 🇵🇹) on Saturday with the kids for a week of R & R. What should we do? Where should we eat? (No car. Attention span of an 8 year old. Also I need to find a birthday cake for said 8 year old, so any suggestions welcome)

Adding too much value often reduces outcomes. For example, slightly better ideas executed with less motivation often give you worse outcomes than slightly worse ideas executed with more motivation. When in doubt, let people own the problem they are solving.

12. If you're going to "add value" to someone else's idea, just skip the meeting. That type of stuff is best-done one-on-one and not in a group setting where you reduce the motivation of the other person. (See signally how smart you are (11) and shut up.)

11. If you're talking to signal how smart you are just shut up.

10. If everyone is on their phone or laptop at the meeting, leave. The decision has already been made.

9. Even if you can't get out of a meeting, rather than sit there an be bored or make a grocery list, become a detective and see what you can learn from/about everyone else in the meeting.

8. If you're the smartest person in the room, you're in the wrong meeting.
