I ask you to climb mountain A in two hours
You climb mountain B in 90 minutes
You are happy about being efficient, you did it quicker than I had estimated
However, are you effective?
Can you relate this to your workplace?
How many meetings would be productive, how many conflicts could be avoided,
how many targets would be met, goals achieved, clients retained, team members motivated, how many more products would be sold, hours saved, stress avoided, all if only employees were to be more effective.
Yes, effective, not just efficient
If you are like most people, you operate without an organized task list
If you do have a task list, it’s not prioritized
If indeed it’s prioritized, you don’t necessary follow it
Are you nodding your head in agreement?
I am a life coach and trust me, I hear this from my clients almost everyday
You are not alone, millions of people the world over, are slaves to distraction
Trivia rules their lives, their attention is scattered and focus is ever shifting
They are running at breakneck speed without paying attention to the direction
They mistake activities for achievements, long hours for performance
