Meetings, conference calls, emails, weekly reviews, monthly updates, missed breakfasts, tons of coffee, working lunches, more meetings, power points, email wars, customer visits, partner meets, visiting executives, more email wars… action, action, action.
Most people I meet are busy, very busy.
Most people I meet are also unhappy about being busy.
They are caught in a whirlwind that begins at 8 am everyday and weakens only after about 10 to 12 hours.
For them, days turn into weeks, weeks into months and sometimes months into years before they realize the madness of it all.
They mistake action for achievements.
Being busy for getting things done.
They measure efficiency ignoring effectiveness.
They review hours instead of productivity.
They are running without knowing why.
They worry about speed not direction.
Are you one of them?
Efficiency is doing things right and effectiveness doing the right things. ~ Peter Drucker
Stop. Think. Act.
