The e-tailer chief prioritizes time management.

Slate recently interviewed Dave Gilboa, co-founder and CEO of Warby Parker, who shared some of his personal strategies for time management. When asked by writer L.V. Anderson how he maintains productivity amid a busy schedule, Gilboa cites his methodology for getting the most out of company meetings. As he explains:

“At the end of each week I try to look at my calendar and review all the meetings that I had that week and rate them zero, one, or two. Zero means it was a really bad use of time and, if I had to do it again, I wouldn’t have attended that meeting at all. Two is a great use of time—I wanna spend more of my time in those types of meetings. And one is somewhere in-between. And then I’ll connect with my assistant and make sure she understands which of those meetings I want more of and which ones could be filtered out so that hopefully over time my schedule becomes more and more productive.”

So the next time a totally worthless meeting results in the scheduling of two additional meetings that you fear could be similarly worthless, consider Gilboa’s approach and adjust your agendas accordingly.
