The meeting concluded.
Papers and seats moved and the rustling and sliding began.
Then came the questions.
“When can you schedule another meeting?”
“How about you get us back together again at the 6, 12, and 18 month mark?”
“Can you arrange for this to happen?”
There was a pause.
A longer pause.
Scanning the room.
Eyes hungrily peering back, waiting for a reply.
“What is stopping you from getting together on your own?”
Sometimes you get used to someone else driving.
Sometimes you get used to someone else setting the agenda.
Sometimes you get used to someone else scheduling that meeting or get-together.
Sometimes you get used to someone else managing that project or idea.
Sometimes you get used to…
What is stopping you?
