Stuff I wrote

- Why does this meeting exist? — If you can’t come up with a sentence or two that says why you scheduled the meeting, you should consider what that implies.
- Stop writing like an engineer — Putting the important part at the end doesn’t encourage them to read the whole thing; it just means they move on without reading the important part.
