Employee Engagement and the One-Do-List
What? Why? How? Now What?
- What? Dr. Edward Hallowell stated: Do what matters most to you. Don’t spread yourself too thin.
- Why? Without focus our minds, energies, and efforts get scattered. Losing sight of what matters most and focusing on everything that crosses our path creates the experience of CrazyBusy and lessens our results as we drown in the plethora of possibilities.
- How? Try changing your lengthy daily to do list into a one-do-list. Ask yourself: What is the one thing if you did today would matter the most to you and make the biggest difference? Once you have your response then turn your mental response into focused action to transform the thought into a reality.
- Now What? Ensure this is more than a one time effort. Start each day off by writing your one-do-list because if you don’t you will find yourself engaged in many things but not engaged in what really matters.
