Many wise people will advise:
- Slow down to speed up
- Pausing to be creative
- Take a break to stay energized
To assist with this advice, here are three T’s to remember:
a. Take control over your calendar
b. Just because it’s “happening now” doesn’t make it urgent
c. Expect the unexpected with sprints and buffers
d. Don’t prioritize everything, just your top 3 items
a. Not everyone around you is incompetent
b. Greasing the wheels is different than pulling the cart
c. Don’t feed someone else’s monkey
d. Be the CEO of your life
a. Sometimes people are looking for “next step” directions, not necessarily asking you to do it
b. Seeing yourself as the hero just creates more disasters and damsels in distress – teach people to fish.
c. You don’t have to open the door to every Tom, Dick or Harry. Be selective. Deliberately choose your clients, co-workers, and playmates. Select the ones that will be advantage to you as well as visa-versa. Just because you can help everyone doesn’t mean that you should. There are other teachers out there that may be a better match to the rest.
