That’s the path of efficiency and effectiveness. The work is real. The need is dire. But please don’t rush through it.
Rushing means skipping the details.
Urgency means paying the details the attention they deserve, with the respect they deserve, without delay.
Too many options. Not enough options. Too many good ideas. Too many bad ideas. Don’t know what to do. Don’t know which to choose. You’re confused.
Confusion creates indecision. Indecision creates stagnancy. Stagnancy will make you irrelevant. And irrelevance will make you obsolete.
Unless confusion is embraced.
Then confusion leads to research. Better questions. Exploring new paths. Making new connections. Fact finding. Testing out theories. Narrowing down your options. Then comes clarity.
Confusion, when embraced, is the starting point for discovery, direction and decision.
Want to give your all to a worthy cause, business or project?
Here’s the secret: Say no to stuff.
It’s painful. It’s confusing. It’s ugly. But it’s the right thing.
As Drucker says, “If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old.”
Say no to everything, so you can say yes to the one thing.
