CEO of Behance says:
At the end of every meeting, go around and review the action steps each person has captured.
The exercise takes less than 30 seconds per person, and it almost always reveals a few action steps that were missed.
The exercise also breeds a sense of accountability. If you state YOUR action steps in front of YOUR colleagues, then YOU are likely to follow through.
For Traders, we should rephrase this advice. After every TV viewing session, sum up the action plan that you have captured. The purpose of spending so much time is to get some actionable ideas. So, write those ideas down. Then you will realize if the time was spent on business (actionable ideas obtained) or on entertainment (did not understand what the program was telling me!).
