The Prisoner Of Routines
John Porcaro writes in The Prisoner Of Routines: "Harvard Business School's Working Knowledge for Business Leaders published a great article called 'The Trap of Overwhelming Demands.' In it, they warn that being habitually too busy leads to preventing managers from taking the time to notice opportunities. 'Feeling under the gun,' these managers never find time to ask themselves, 'Am I busy with the right things?''" Remember, no one gets promoted for doing good email or good meetings or good voice mail. These are the urgent interruptions that prevent us from doing important work. Are you doing your job, or are you just jumping through hoops?
