The Surprising Key to Getting Things Done

The Surprising Key to Getting Things Done | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

There’s no point in getting more efficient at doing things that don’t need to be done. -Jan Jasper

 

Before you start making a schedule, organizing a task list, setting deadlines, gathering materials, delegating, prioritizing, and so on, stop and do this first.

 

- Write down your top five goals for your business in the next five years, say, or just in the next year. Make it long-term enough to pull your perspective out of the current crisis or negative cash flow or whatever it is that is screaming “URGENT” at you.
- Now, with those five goals in front of you, list backwards the actions you need to take. In other words, start with the ultimate goal and work your way back from there to where you are now...

The Happiness Project: Do You Often (or Ever) Feel a Wonderful, Joyous, Childhood Feeling of Expectancy?

The Happiness Project: Do You Often (or Ever) Feel a Wonderful, Joyous, Childhood Feeling of Expectancy? | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Assay: I’m a huge fan of the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books. If you read these brilliant stories as a child, you should re-read them now; so much of the humor is pitched at grown-ups --marriage, friendship, theories of child-rearing.

 

After I’d re-read Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle for the fiftieth time, I decided to try Betty MacDonald’s adult work. In her memoir, Onions in the Stew, she remarked, “Going down to the beach after a storm is the only time in my adult life when I experience that wonderful, joyous, childhood feeling of expectancy.”

 

This observation struck me, because I’ve noticed that I too rarely experience a “sense of expectancy.” The fact is, I don’t have a very joyful spirit. I rarely look forward even to fun events or activities. Also, I dislike errands, logistical details, or any kind of hassle, and even when those hurdles are fairly minor, they can overshadow my sense of anticipation...

Points to Remember in Improving Your Leadership Skills

Points to Remember in Improving Your Leadership Skills | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

As a leader, you should always remember that people do not tend to be productive when they’re just pushed to do something and would tend to perform much better if they’ll be inspired to do a thing because of a great cause or motivated and guided by a person they really respect. Therefore, in order to become an effective leader, you need to learn how to make your people understand the reason why they need to do their best in what they do. Do not push them too hard as this would only cause them to think you are just after your very own benefits. Learn how leadership skills to motivate them to work by seeing the benefits they’ll be getting from it and how important they’re for the whole team to succeed.

 

You need to make your member understand that each and every one of them has a very important role in the success of the team. And only through doing their best and working together will they be able to achieve the team’s goal. Also it is really important to know all your members’ strengths and weaknesses, as this will greatly help you in properly assigning specific tasks to them and utilizing their fullest potential. Pushing them too much could just make them do the opposite; this would just generate hate and irritation from your members, so avoid doing this...
