Whether or not you believe there’s a real risk of getting infected with the Wuhan Virus (a.k.a. COVID-19), many government and business officials are taking the coronavirus threat seriously.
And that’s why you’re seeing business meetings, conferences, and other public events being canceled or postponed.
The important takeaway from this is that most face-to-face meetings are unessential. This means you’re wasting your time when you attend most of them.
It shouldn’t take a pandemic threat to adjust your priorities. Skip the meetings. And focus on what’s truly important.
