Put this Post-It note next to your computer screen
Get out a clean Post-It note and write the following questions:
- What are you doing right now?
- Why are you doing it?
- What is the expected outcome or result?
- Is this the most important thing you could be doing?
- What should you be doing instead?
Put a copy on the side of your computer screen at work. Keep yourself honest, and focused.
Might also be a good idea to put these questions up in your conference rooms, too.
