What are some tips for having very productive meetings?

Clarification added 1 day ago:

Jason Fried says that there are 2 problems with meetings:

1) we schedule them in increments of time as designed by software we use, like 15 minutes, 30 mins, an hour. We never schedule an 8-minute meeting when often this is how much time we need.

2) when we schedule an hour meeting with 10 people in it, it's not a 1-hour meeting, it's a 10-hour meeting. That's expensive to the company. So the productivity gains from that meeting need to be significant to justify the cost.
