Short and sweet Brad.
I guess the challenge for business owners is that there’s already a lot on the plate in the sense that one or two people represent every single department in their company. Would lists be the best ways to tackle everything?
Stress free effectiveness to me is personal effectiveness. I know I am not doing myself any favours when I allow myself to be distracted, procrastinate, or am feeling downright lazy.
Lists to me mean any form of self management – whatever works to get things done in the correct order! I don’t believe a program or list can solely organise us – it has to come from within, hence point no 3 is very important.
We need to buy into the idea of being stress free, and organised. Some would scoff at organisation
I would however, like to comment on your definition. It is compelling, but I believe that whatever a person does or doesn’t do in the moment – is the right thing to do in that moment.
Great snappy post and the 3 points would be super effective if we could just stick with them all the time. Clearing the mind made me smile – I for one still struggle to clear my mind. Deep meditation is necessary for me but not always practical. So we do our best with what we have, in the time that we have. Clarity does help yes
Thanks Elaine, for the comments. I also smiled when I read your comments. Because until recently I would have thought the same. To be honest, the reason most people struggle really clearing their mind and keeping it that way is because they don’t process or organise the results (i.e. step 2), and they don’t do step 2 because they don’t trust themselves to regularly review it and keep it current (i.e. step 3). So the key is to adopt a systematic approach that encompasses all three behaviours.
Hi Leanne, welcome to Bloggertone, we are delighted that you joined us.
People are the fundamental difference between success & failure & I have been guilty in the past of criticising companies that lose sight of this, particularly now during times of economic uncertainty. However I think that your point as to why so many executives view human capital as a liability instead of an asset is very interesting & well made. The Human Capital or Employment Development Strategy is a brilliant idea & I simply love the tools that you have highlighted.
Thanks for sharing,
Welcome to Bloggertone Leanne! I liked the idea of “customer experience”
Hi Leanne, and well done for a great post. I completely agree with you – businesses do very often fail to have any Employment Development Plan. This is something I find particularly true of small businesses, perhaps because they are so very often reactionary in their approach. Fully agree too that training is regularly not focused on the right things and fails to be “sticky”.
