Are your Efforts making you Effective?

Most people know that the output of an activity does not necessarily correlate to the input that goes towards it.

Productivity improvement is generally defined as doing more with less than before.

Whether it is flossing your teeth, cleaning the city after NYE celebrations, processing invoices or getting a job, achieving the best outcome requires a lot more than brute force.

Doing the same things as before and expecting a better outcome is not going get anyone anywhere different.

Most people I know put a lot of effort into what they do and how they do it. Only a handful become effective at it and continue to get better over time. I meant they achieve beyond what the Cerebellum can help them with.

Sharpening the Sow is a crucial aspect to continued improvements. This involves the process of planning, execution and review.

In the business world, technology is heavily applied to automate repetitive tasks. People get bored with performing uninteresting or simple work. It is in our best interest to automate mundane aspects of any business.

People are also prone to making mistakes. Hence It is important to build automation into tasks that require absolute focus and precision. Typically there is a human-machine partnership that is employed here. Read more…

Productivity and the Power of Purpose

Time is the only commodity that is equally distributed to everyone. We all get 24 hours to use, lose, waste or make in a day. This is the level playing field. 

How we used Time essentially means how we lived. Time it took you to read this sentence just elapsed. 

Time is life. Efficient use of time to have good experiences in life is very important.

Productivity improvements to master time with technology is what made our economies work all these centuries.

Working smart instead of hard is about how well you use your time to achieve your goals. To be happy and live our lives well, we need to balance a variety of priorities.

Thanks to Internet, People are more mobile and more connected than ever before in human history. 

Air Travel became possible only a 100 years ago. People used to sail across the oceans for months to get to other parts of the world. People posted things via mail service, drive for hours or fly to meet people. People waited in queues to get into libraries to get access to a book to read, learn or research.

Internet changed it all.

While the internet was born years ago, the internet as we know it is only about 20 years old. It is almost every where and more than 3 billion people are using it every day. 

The entire planet and all of its people will be connected in the next couple of decades if not earlier. This will make internet one of the most important things a human will need besides oxygen, water, food, cloths, shelter and freedom.

But, does this connectivity automatically mean we are more productive? Is Internet making us use our time well? 

While many things have become simple and efficient, we still have not realised the power of this quite right. 

I am passionate about helping people become more effective at work. Information handling and processing has a lot of opportunities for optimisation.

I see many of us still stuck with old ways and old tools to merely get by. I see businesses survive instead of looking to thrive. 

This has wasted a lot of time and many lives. It is important that businesses take this very seriously.

Purpose is very important to any pursuit. 

Productivity should be about living your life well through the mastery of time.

Are we there yet? Will we get there?

Why Capture enabling your business is Critical?

The internet recently celebrated “back to the future” day. Still, Many businesses are transacting through manual processes and paper files.

Often I speak to businesses and query about their productivity levels. In every case, most staff would complain that they are overwhelmed by paperwork.

Paper use in business created a lot of problems. People hate paperwork because of this.

A lot of time is wasted chasing paper, picking up paper from where it was left and dealing with lost paper.

To tackle this issue, Many businesses use document imaging  and turn paper into an electronic format. This document then travels through email or file shares to reach different people and systems.

This approach is a step forward from physical paper but, it actually creates additional issues. All we have now is an electronic version (or versions) of the paper. Read more…

Push Notifications is a way of informing the mobile app user of any activities of interest.
