What if there was a meeting template that helped you have fewer meetings?
Now, there is. This recurring meeting template was built not only to capture relevant meeting notes but also to help you get rid of bad meetings.
Recurring meetings cause a lot of problems. They clutter up your calendar with ongoing commitments that frequently feel like a waste of time, go on far too long, and include participants that should have been removed long ago. And most people have put nothing in place to help stop this.
It's time to take back control of your calendar.
This template will help you stop attending calls with the "this should have been an email" feeling, where no one is prepared, and where you have to repeat yourself week after week.
Our template was designed to streamline a healthy meeting process to ensure every recurring meeting is a productive use of your time. It builds in accountability, increases transparency on the cost of the meeting, and changes up meetings that aren't working for you.
We target the 3 biggest mistakes people make with recurring meetings:
- Lack of clarity
- No accountability
- Allowing zombie mode
You can see the full details of the philosophy of this template in this article.
Here's what you can expect from our meeting template:
- An organized layout that makes it easy to capture action items and decisions
- A dashboard with evaluation and end dates for your recurring meeting
- A detailed checklist of 25 questions to review on the evaluation date to help you identify where your meeting can be upgraded
- An introduction to using a pre-qualifier to make sure the meeting is worth your time BEFORE it happens
- A transparent display of the total cost of the recurring meeting (The Core template shows this cost in time. The Plus template shows this cost in time and dollar value. You receive both options.)
- A system for creating proof of what you've accomplished with the recurring call.
And much more

I've used this template to help me keep meetings less than 5% of my workweek. I've used it with clients to help them cut, on average, half the meetings from their calendar (and keep it that way).
Meetings on my calendar may be sparse, but I look forward to them. All my meetings are purposeful and drive progress forward. They're no longer a waste of my time. This is what should be normalized.
By using this template, you will start having more efficient meetings, implement habits that help meetings fall off your calendar, and get more time back for what's important.
