躲避任務

(從我的一個喜歡與尊敬的作家,賽斯 高汀) 我們以兩種方式來做到這一點。 首先的作法是拒絕明確和確切地說明我們的使命是什麼。 避免說明關於我們希望完成的事情和為誰而定的細節。當對成功定義是模糊的時候(因此對失敗的定義也是模糊的)。 畢竟,如果沒有人能確切地知道這個任務是什麼,就算它沒有成功也就很難感覺到有失敗。 第二種做法是更加陰險的。 我們把使命的緊迫性降低。我們變得瀰漫與分心。做任何事都要避免站住我們的立場,並說:“我做到了。” 在八小時的時間裡,我們可以花費七小時五十二分鐘去躲避應該做的任務。這實在是很累。

衝刺

(從我的一個喜歡與尊敬的作家,賽斯 高汀) 大多數人有兩種速度。 一種是苦差事,日復一日,像馬拉松一樣,工作工作工作。 還有另一種是睡眠與複蘇,或是像看完Netflix成殭屍的狀態,我們把這兩種規律劃分在每一天內。 但您有想過另一種像衝刺的速度嗎? 不是因為老闆或客戶堅持要您衝刺。  而是我們採取衝刺因為去激勵我們自己,並提醒我們自己能耐有多少當我們不成為自己的障礙。我們衝刺是去建立我們自己的能力。 用衝刺去刺激我們。 提高馬拉鬆技能最好方法是不時的去學習衝刺。 也許你無法維持衝刺一整天。 但今天下午呢? 你可以學習,或建立,或教導,或貢獻什麼? 你可以推出什麼?

“更明智”值多少錢?

(從我的一個喜歡與尊敬的作家,賽斯 高汀) 沒有新的成本,沒有新的機器,沒有新的資源。 只有做的更為明智。 對於這個過程做的更為明智,對於這個效果做的更為明智。對於計劃,對於領導,對於管理,對於衡量,都做的更為明智。 那明智能值多少錢? 根據我的經驗,明智通常總是最廉價的,你可以用明智去換取許多其它更有價值的東西。
