Winning The Right Race--Part 2

The Coates Perspective for March 20, 2013
“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
Schedule What You Can Do, Not What You Can’t (Part 2)

As a consultant I have observed that people can become very busy doing very busy things that keep everyone else very busy too. But here is the problem: being busy on the wrong things at the wrong time can produce wasted energy, time, and money. It does not take long for a season of unreachable goals to kill any semblance of momentum. By having an undisciplined and overambitious schedule, enthusiasm wanes as the last drip of adrenalin is spent.

I have seen firsthand of what happens when an organization becomes consumed with unproductive busyness: after awhile, everyone burns out. I have identified some strategic ways in which you can be an effective leader and still keep your life. Here is my second tip for those who wish to not become consumed by professional and personal burnout:

2.     Commit to a schedule that is realistic. Our daily lists rule many of us. Before you create your list, make sure the right things are on the top and the “squeaky wheels” are on the bottom.

Let us know how this works. I would be interested to hear from you.
