Structuring Effective Work
Distractions, distractions, distractions. They abound don't they. So much so, that I'm willing to bet that many professionals are now finding it hard to differentiate between constructive work that leads somewhere and busy work that doesn't amount to much. Sometimes, we can get caught in a cycle of doing what we "want" to do because it gives instant or quicker gratification than setting a well written goal that will take some time and critical thinking to accomplish. To become a fixture in whatever industry you are in will require tenacious effort, will, and patience. Sky scrapers are not erected overnight. Our work ethic, planning, and execution must become methodical and intertwined with our lifestyle. Simply put, intelligent work habits must become a part of who we are. We can make this happen by writing out our goals, reviewing them daily, taking the time to plan out how we can reach them, and then doing small bite sized chunks of work at a time on a consistent basis.
