When there is no priority, everything becomes a priority. Focus is a critical skill. Too many times we have learned at school and in the real world that it is good to multi-task. I can’t stress how important focus is. So figure out your priority and then focus like a needle.
In a good company, I believe the best ideas become a compass to the company’s direction. The ecosystem should always allow the best ideas to come forward. When the ideas are presented, it’s critical to first understand what the company’s priorities are. What are the short-term goals? long-term goals? Even for short term goals, what are the top 3 goals. When the priority is not clear, then every small project will be equally as important as the big one. Then its a problem.
Figure out your priority, focus on it and you’ll be amazed at the results.
