Work Smart

Reproducing an article I read on dumblittleman:
1. Get clear on the objective. The clearer you are, the better.
2. Create a vision. See the objective as your direction, and your vision as your destination.
3. Take the 80/20 route. 80/20 route refers to the route that takes the least effort but gives you the maximum results.
4. Go for high impact items. Go for the most important tasks – the ones that cause the highest impact.
5. Create structures to maintain your flow. If you know how motivation works, you will know it comes in bursts and waves.
6. Stop being a perfectionist. Stop obsessing about the details and specifics; they often take care of themselves.
7. Learn from others. There are great resources, smart people, direct opportunities and top books around you all the time. Learn to make use of them.
8. If it works, stick to it. If there is already a success formula that’s working, then reapply that formula.
9. Ask for help. If you don’t ask, you’ll never get.
10. Cut out the fluff. Don’t do things unless they are absolutely needed.
11. Automate. Is there anyway to automate your tasks, especially labor intensive ones?
12. Delegate.
13. Outsource. If something is not your area of expertise or it can be better done by someone else, then outsource it.
14. Wait. Sometimes, waiting may be the best solution.
15. Pick your battles. Don’t try to ram up against every barrier you face, especially if there’s nothing much on the other side.
16. Always lookout for a better way. Don’t restrict yourself to a certain set rule of doing things just for the sake of status quo.
17. Stop when you are tired.
18. Review regularly. Do a regular review of what you have done in the past week and the corresponding results.

We are all living a story but very few stories become a box-office hit. We are just too happy clapping for the successful hero’s rather than trying to be one…. because it’s easy, comfortable, and very, very human to stick close to the people that think and act like us.

We all are on a mission, some recognize and take charge while others dont. Once in a while, its important to question .. are we taking risks, striving tirelessly, and undergoing our own hero’s journey?

Dust if you must

Just today when I was thinking of dusting the house this weekend, I saw this email from my friend with the following message…. So read on…. I am sure you will change your mind after reading this… as I did 🙂

Dust if you must but wouldn’t it be better
to paint a picture or write a letter,
bake a cake, lick the spoon, plant a seed?
Ponder the difference between want and need?

Dust if you must but there’s not much time
with rivers to swim and mountains to climb,
wine to drink, music to hear, books to read,
friends to cherish and a life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world’s out there
with the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair,
a flutter of snow, a shower of rain.
This day will never come around again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind
old age will come and it’s not kind.
And when you go – and go you must,
you, yourself, will make more dust!
