If you truly want to be effective and efficient (remember, they can be two different issues) you need to constantly ask yourself three questions;
- What am I and my co-workers (or family members) doing that doesn’t need to be done?
- Does anyone really need to do these things?
- What am I doing that others could do?It’s easy to get bogged down in the “C” things on your A, B, C priority list. Ask yourself the three questions above—and answer them honestly and act on them—and you’ll wasted less time and get more A and B things done.
