Lollipop Land

Something I’ve been meaning to do for ages: wrote up my notes on How to run a successful meeting. When you charge a day rate, someone wasting three hours of a day with a useless meeting is something you get snippy about.

For me, that snippiness manifests as ultra-sarcasm – if someone’s wandering off into meaningless flights of fancy and wishful thinking instead of contributing to the meeting’s conclusion, I interject with the phrase “…and while we’re in Lollipop Land, I’d like a pink-maned pony to ride across the candyfloss clouds.” Why I came up with such an effeminate expression I’ve no idea – and I’ve even less idea how My Little Pony somehow whinnyed its way into my lexicon – but it works.

Anyway, here’s the guide.
