We have spent the better part of our life on video calls in the last few years. They are for the most part, tiring and unproductive. The more there are in a meeting the less everyone has a say. Let's try to make smaller groups, shorter calls and come online with a specific topic in mind.

Turning off video and sitting to the side also can help in a way. I've found that something like a voice call or a slack huddle and shared screen or document is much more effective. Digital whiteboards are not as fluent using the mouse. Maybe with a digital tablet or touch pad it might be more effective.

Let's keep those video calls short, on point and productive.
