Report reading until...

Last night I attended a meeting. Nothing unusual about that. I do work for a church...

But I needed to arrive early in order to read the papers which were going to be discussed.

But I have a confession.

There have been times when I would skim the reports prior to a meeting. Barely skim. Glance at even.

But now I have a system which I try and enforce upon myself.

I read ever report and glean at least one question or comment which I want to make (even if I ultimately don't disclose it publicly).

The reason? If I didn't, then I'd be forced to question the value I add to the meeting and if my attendance is the best (or even decent) use of my time...
