"Most people will look back and realize they did not have a great life
because it's just so easy to settle for a good life."
Jim Collins(quoted by Art Kleiner in Strategy and Business)
great doing of little things makes the great life."
a Great Life
A 2002 Harvard Business Review study of busy managers characterized typical managers as "squandering 90% of their time on all sorts of ineffective activities." Busy work - work that "seems to need doing" yet doesn't really increase productivity - sneaks up on you like a pick-pocket and steals your time, energy, and focus.
Why would anyone put off critical or complicated tasks to engage in unproductive work? How do you know which is which? In the above quote, Eugenia Price makes the point "The great doing of little things makes the great life." It's all those little things we have to do that get displaced by the critical and urgent fire to be put out. In the Mission Control Productivity Workshop you'll see that there's nothing wrong with you that you can't catch up enough to take care of those important details. It's a function of work habits designed for another time. If a GREAT life is what you want, join us in a workshop to reinvent how you work.
We do workshops in various cities around the US, Canada, England and Germany and also deliver Webinars, workshops online that can be attended anywhere in the world with greater flexibility of time. In addition to the standard introductory workshop we offer workshops specifically for Sales, Small Business Owners and Self-Employed.
