Means to an end

A means to an end is an activity or process done in order to accomplish a goal. Often, the activity itself is not enjoyable or considered important. The phrase means to an end is used to describe things that a person considers to be necessary to suffer through in order to accomplish their real goals. When a person is described as a means to an end, it means that another person is using them as an expedient tool to get what they want. Example: Meetings are boring but to get work done, they are a necessary means to an end.
