TimeSucks

Time Sucks are those things that rob from us precious seconds, minutes, days, and even weeks of productivity.  They contribute little or nothing in moving us toward our goals.

A few notable Time Sucks:

  • Layers of "permission" required, just to make simple decisions and take simple actions.
  • Meetings that are either agenda-less or completely disconnected from our goals.
  • "Hair on fire" work environments, where urgency persistently trumps importance.
  • Team players, at all levels, who seemingly don't understand our mission.
  • Systems and processes that are bureaucracy protective rather than customer focused.
Oh, one more:
  • Organizational leaders who don't understand Time Sucks.
We can reduce or eliminate almost all of those Time Sucks.

Time's a wastin'....
