Busyness leads to unproductiveness

Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” – Socrates

Don’t take on more tasks and responsibilities. You end up doing many things in a mediocre way. Instead, focus your time and energy on a few important things.

Marcus Aurelius
“If you seek tranquility, do less. Or do what’s essential. Do less, better. Because most of what we do or say is not essential. If you can eliminate it, you’ll have more tranquility..."
Keep the momentum going

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” – Confucius.

One unproductive day can destroy your whole momentum. And that can set you back months.

Small things lead to big outcomes

All your small actions combined, form your system for living.

And that leads to the big outcomes in life: More happiness, fulfillment, wealth—all a result of your system.

Be mindful about the work you do

Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.” – Aristotle

No matter how hard you work today, never see it as a sacrifice. You will end up resenting yourself.

Celebrate the process, not the outcomes

Neither blame or praise yourself.” – Plutarch

When you blame yourself often, you end up hating yourself. And when you praise yourself too much, you end up loving yourself in an unhealthy way (a form of narcissism). If you overdo it, you sacrifice the quality of your work.

RELATED IDEAS

Employees also have other concerns that hamper productivity and efficiency. It may be personal problems, a lack of will to work, or any other factor not in a manager's control.

The modern workforce enables employees to be the means of production themselves, using their knowledge, expertise and experience. The output is the quality of the results and the creative decisions made in a day.

IDEAS

Creativity is not something we “do”.  We cannot force ourselves or grind out a completely new creative idea for a blog post or essay.

Relaxing and doing nothing can actually be a vital part of the creative process. 

It is all about balance.

It encourages you to claim your successes and to deflect your failures.

When something good happens, you take the credit, but when something bad happens, you blame it on something out of your control.
