If you don’t follow my sister site, EMR and HIPAA, what’s wrong with you? Just kidding…kind of. But I digress…If you don’t read EMR and HIPAA, then you might not know that I regularly do what I call Fun Friday. On Friday, we’ve all generally had a long week and we are ready for something a little light hearted to start our weekend.

I don’t do it every Friday, but I do it regularly enough that people love it. So, where possible I’m also going to do Fun Friday here on EMR and EHR.

This week’s Fun Friday post is a Dilbert cartoon that takes a great look at the balance of planning vs executing:

I love the concept of working meetings. Meetings to discuss plans are not generally as useful as meetings that perform actions. Take a minute to think about how you can turn a meeting into an action completed and you’ll start to look at meetings in a very different way.
