I hope you’ve had a great and productive week, whatever that may mean to you.
If you were trying to get a big project done, I hope you accomplished your goal.
If you were on vacation and all you wanted to do was as little as possible, I hope you accomplished your goal.
That’s the beauty of focusing on efficacy over efficiency.
Efficiency focuses on getting as much done as possible; efficacy focuses on doing what you set out to do.
I hope you achieved the latter! Because the desire for efficiency has turned a lot of the world into workaholics.
Don’t be a workaholic.
In other news, I’ve been working on a new project. I’ll be revealing more soon, so stay alert.
And finally, here’s an awesome quote I’ve been musing on:
“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.” – Ambrose Redmoon
