Two Minute Drill: Wednesday’s Workaround
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy NOT Tuesday Two Minute Drill but Wednesday’s workaround. Yesterday I missed my TMD and I woke up to a text this morning from one of my best friends, Stewart, who said, “Hey man don’t worry about it. You know you missed your TMD, but you know it’s not a big deal. It’s not a failure, you just prioritize other things in your life that day, and sometimes that happens.”
I missed my TMD
I usually hate workarounds. I really do! I want problems to be solved but sometimes we do need to find ways to get stuff done that’s not perfect or ideal. It’s progress, not perfection at times.
Why do we need workarounds, to begin with? For me, my schedule is crazy busy. I’m overcommitted. What am I going to do to solve that problem so that I don’t miss my TMDs?
One thing is organizing my schedule in a more efficient way. Another way to make sure that I’m not overcommitted by saying NO. If I happen to say no to you in the future, it’s only because I don’t want to disappoint you, and miss the mark like I did yesterday with my TMD.
When it comes to workarounds, sometimes they’re necessary. Sometimes we have to get them done.
Find out why you need the workaround, and then work to ensure that you don’t need future workarounds in your business and in your life.
That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill.
Have a great week, you guys.
