At the end of a task, project, or day, what do you want to be known for?
You may think that to “be” productive, you need to “do” a lot of things during the day. Logic would prove, then, that if you’re not getting things done, you’re not productive That’s no fun! How do you treat yourself and others when the to-do list never ends, and there’s always another, newer e-mail to read?
Redefine what the word, “productive” means to you, your team, and your organization. Of course, manage the commitments you make and projects you have, but imagine how productive you all could be as employees, peers, and leaders if you worked better together.
- If you want everyone to serve the mission, serve the mission.
- If you want your people to care, show you care.
- If you want your team to love what they do, love what you do (and make a BIG deal about it).
- If you want people to be at their best, show what it means—and what it takes—to be at your best.
Ensure that for each task you check off a list, you also serve the communities in which you work, love, and live to the best of your ability. Get more (done) and be more of who you want to be!
