I just came across another fabulous quote from Peter Drucker.
“There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.”
Sometimes instead of asking how we can do something better, maybe we should be asking ourselves what would happen if we didn’t do it at all.
We should be asking ourselves questions such as:
- Is it critical to what we do?
- Does it move us towards our mission?
- Would our customers notice if we didn’t do it?
- Who would die if we didn’t do it? (figuratively of course)
