I've heard all of the advice about no laptops in meetings and I think I understand the reasons for it and I really do want to try it once we get back to work next week.
Here's my question:
When I'm in a meeting that I'm not running and discussion turns to something that's not at all relevant to me, what am I supposed to do? Do I use my pen and paper (brought for taking notes) to work on one of my top priorities or do I really just sit there and do nothing? Is that effective?
