Do you have your to-do list with you? Simply writing an assortment of to-dos on a list doesn't mean it is the final list. Every individual and organization creates lists. We call them action plans. Sometimes they’re big like a strategic plan covering many years, large workforces, several countries and multiple products or programs. Other times they’re more personal, like the around-home to-do list that gets the lawn mowed, the dog washed, the washer in the hose changed, the windows cleaned, next week’s meals planned, the … well, you get the picture. Plans come in all shapes and sizes. All [...]

Far too many leaders and professionals want to boast about being busy .. not as a fact (because we ARE busy), but as an indication of something else. An attitude perhaps. Something that feeds a need within me to get recognized as important. After all, busyness equals importance, right? Not so fast. It's one thing to be busy.
