Change is Inevitable … in Business and Life

My definition of Independence is forever changed

Life doesn’t come with a manual, so if my sharing is insightful for you – awesome. I’m not a counselor, but, I tend to figure out processes that allow me to learn as I go. Since my current circumstance carries a good deal of emotionally charged experiences right now, I’m in particularly uncharted territory.

Your words last forever

We all post and comment at Facebook or Linkedin. We all write emails and send texts to each other. We all comment on blogs and websites. All those words. Words, words and more words. And wherever your words go, they are copied and stored and very likely will last...

Make it simple

How good a job you have done making your processes simple for your people or your customers is determined not by how wonderful you think it looks from the inside. The quality of the simplicity is determined by the ease with which the user can get done what they need to get done for them to progress.

Speed vs Accuracy

Would you prefer a fast meal or a well prepared meal? You have choices just as the restaurant has choices and builds its business around what it actually is willing to commit to perform. Doing your best work is about making it great. Being fast is about putting something out there quickly.

Efficiency vs. Effectiveness

Striving for the greatest efficiency in technology as a way to solve a problem is very trendy. The efficiency we all now recognize from technology, all too often creates a perspective that everything we do needs to maximize efficiency. In the endless pursuit of efficiency it is easy to lose sight of whether or not the concept or effort is actually effective.
