9 ways to become smarter in the meeting

In brainstorm meetings, having a good idea can be a stressful request. But fortunately, sometimes the company doesn't want the "new" idea.

1. Remove water and ask if anyone wants to drink


Just before the start of the meeting, sit up and ask people if they want something to drink. People will think, "Oh, this guy is cute, so considerate,". Moreover, you can "hide" for about ten minutes from the pressure meeting without anyone questioning anything. If nobody wants to eat anything, just come back with a few bottles of water, coca, and snacks. Your colleague will be "motivated" to eat and drink, and your thoughtful anxiety will make people think you can predict the future.

2. Draw a sticky note and draw a snake drawing dragon

When the meeting topic has just been introduced, please pull out the sticky note, and start drawing meaningless charts. Your colleague will begin to look at you with eyes that are both fearful and admiring, wondering how on earth you can think of so many complicated ideas without knowing what the purpose of the meeting is.

3. Perform minimal to deep comparison


As soon as people are trying to identify the problem, make a comparison of baking, or any unrelated topic. Your colleague will nod in agreement, even if they're wondering what the hell you're saying is related to the topic. Talking about the topics "beyond" everyone's prediction will make you super cool and creative in their eyes, even if the truth is just because you like to eat bread.

4. Ask if we asked the right question


No action is smarter than asking questions through making the right questions. If someone responds, asking you if the question is exactly the question, answer the question you just asked.
