Strategies for dealing with uncertainty in business - Deepstash

Strategies for dealing with uncertainty in business

  • Use analytic techniques that don’t require high accuracy.
  • Prepare for multiple outcomes
  • Find and rely on the predictable elements of the situation
  • Focus your evaluation of initiatives on the inputs (the quality of the process that went into its planning and execution) not just the outputs 
  • Remain agile, and strive to respond quickly
  • You have to prepare for failure, success, and everything in between. But as long as others find you trustable, you’ll never be on your own

Time Management Is Not A Solution

Most people want more done during the course of the day, feeling productive if they have checked more boxes out of their to-do list. Time management has been a fad for a long time, equating productivity with the number of hours spent working.

The way we approach time management is proving to be a vicious circle of wasting time managing time, turning it into a problem rather than a solution towards productivity.
