Do less better

We have so many options to choose from when it comes to improving our business. One of the most amazing things to happen however is that nothing gets done. Focus is the key and by doing less better you can get so much more done.

There is a Chinese proverb “if you chase two rabbits, both will escape”. When we focus we increase the likelihood that we can get a project or task to completion. We gain momentum and we are able to complete more projects in the same period of time than if we applied a shotgun approach.

Efficiency increases when we focus on single improvements, we don’t have to remember where we got to on the project, we are always up to speed and therefore we don’t waste time trying to work out where we need to be.

Decision making becomes simple when there is only one focus. We can discriminate easily and our choices always support getting the job done. When we choose only one thing to focus on we improve our chances of getting results. This of course doesn’t mean that you stop doing everything else in your day-to-day working life. We just limit the other projects and tasks we have around our normal tasks so that we can keep everything going and make improvements that count at the same time.

If you are being faced with numerous improvements and feel that your aren’t getting anywhere then stop what you are doing. Choose one project / task to focus on and keep on ‘hitting it until you hit it’. When you have completed your objective move on to the next most important project or task.
