What is necessary and sufficient to your success? At the end of the day can you truly say you have accomplished what is critical to your success with the appropriate amount of energy? Now place yourself in the shoes of a professional providing a service to an internal customer and think of which goal is greater:
- “Keep them happy” – achieve the recipients goals at the expense of efficiency, maintainability and repeatably (“keep them happy”);
- “Keep them safe” – complete tasks in a manner structured to handle variability.
That’s the balancing act called your day. To complete this framework, compound juggling those goals with time constraints, emotional reticence disguised as rational, cogent arguments, and throw in some in-coherent email chains and a video conference. How do prioritize and get done should be done?
This blog is about keeping an agile active mind by creating an engine that is fueled by ideas, creativity. It’s also about getting things done, and the great opportunity we have technology to do what’s important, repeat that great success over and over, and shut off the background noise. Being smart and working less is really cool, and with the right technology you can produce great things. It’s about creating an Active-Engine because it’s the right thing to do.
