      Three Perfectly Legit Alibis For Avoiding Last-Minute Meetings

      A coworker sends you an email asking if you’re available for a 2:30 p.m. meeting, and your first thought is: How am I going to get out of this? You haven’t blocked out that time on your calendar, because technically you aren’t already committed to something else. However, you have a list of things planned for the afternoon, and no, a surprise meeting isn’t on it.

      What Happened When I Replaced My To-Do Lists With "Love-To-Do" Lists

      To-do lists are for robots, which I’ve discovered I am not. In my experience, the more "grownup" you become, the more you're forced to mechanically check things off a list just to get paid. That's life—welcome to adulthood, kid. But life wasn't working out the way I'd wanted it to; I got stuff done, I just hated doing it. So when I finally quit my job to strike out on my own, I decided to inject a little humanity back in my work. To do that, I had to give my to-do lists the boot.

      My First Year Of Parenthood Helped Me Reset My Career Goals (For The Better) | Fast Company | The Future Of Business

      All I could come up with was: “I want to sleep through the night, for more than three hours at a time.” Well, I used to. I’ve been so knee-deep in survival mode during my son’s first year of life, wrangling a puppy, and finding out that I was pregnant with No. 2 when my son was nine months old, that I suddenly realized, while preparing for this chat, that I had no short- or long-term goals. “Well, what do you want life to look like in five years?” my friend asked as a prompt.

      Startup Not Scaling? Maybe It's Your Technology

      Let’s say—benefit of the doubt and all—that the tools and systems you put in place when you launched your startup were the best choices you could have made at the time. That day, though, was probably a while ago. For many founders, that means years or even a decade or two ago. Startups don't stay startups forever. New organizations become not-so-new ones. But just because time passes doesn't mean these ventures scale.

      Exactly How To Spend The Last Hour Of Your Workday

      It’s 4 p.m. and you’re having a hard time focusing. So you stare at your computer and click in and out of lots of tabs. But when you look up, you see it’s only 4:03 p.m. Then, you get a glass of water, which takes all of seven minutes. You’re not feeling inspired to tackle something important, but ducking out early—or sitting at your desk and twiddling your thumbs for 50 minutes—aren’t options either.

      Your Conference Calls Sound Terrible, But You Don’t Have To

      When I recently asked the CFO of a major retailer if he'd had time to do some "homework" I'd assigned him, he told me, "No, but it’s okay, I can do it on my conference call!" If the CFO of a Fortune 100 company is busy working on something else during conference calls, then you probably are, too. In one recent study, over 60% of people confessed to doing other work and sending emails while on conference calls. It's understandable.

      Before Amaka Osakwe can design a single piece of clothing, she tells herself a story. She might spend hours imagining the life of a woman rushing to catch a bus after a long day. She'll give her a name and paint a picture of her family, her friends, her boyfriend. This was, in fact, the inspiration for Osakwe's Fall 2017 collection, which she showed earlier this month at New York Fashion Week.

      It’s getting more common to hear of startups composed of team members who've never actually met—in fact, I’m founding one right now.

      "You must be an idiot, my order's all wrong!" The man pounded the countertop as I stood on the other side, forcing a toothy smile. "I’m so sorry, sir, that must be frustrating for you. We’ll get that fixed for you right away," I replied. He stared at me for a moment, taken aback, and I watched the anger melt from his face. A few short years later, I'd no longer be slinging fries at McDonald's, fighting the occasional urge to throw punches at irate customers. I'd be running my own company.

      No matter how many capable advisers you have around you, being the CEO of a growing company is a big job that requires many skill sets.

A George Washington University study explored whether co-CEOs were the answer to the high failure rates of second-generation, family-owned businesses. (The answer: sometimes.)

      A Psychologist Finally Explains Why You Hate Teamwork So Much

      There's no way around it: Every significant human accomplishment is the result of coordinated group behavior—people working together to achieve a common goal. Of course, that reality doesn't change the fact that for lots of people, teamwork is like pulling teeth. Here's why, and what to do about it.
