Simple Things Make A Difference Ross | November 26th, 2008
Earlier today, I re-tweeted something from Ken Walden (SuperHatz on Twitter). In his tweet, Ken said: “Do something in your business to help make a process better by 5, 10, 15%, now. Simple actions are the most effective.”
Shortly after I re-tweeted Ken’s tweet, it occurred to me that we mostly focus on long-term goals and grand achievements. Even when we deal with minute details, we often fail to do what Ken suggests – do something in our business to help make a process just a little bit better. It’s not that we don’t care to improve how our businesses are run or how we do our jobs- it’s just that we never stop and devote the time to make such improvements.
So – thanks a bunch Ken! The lesson for us: we must periodically stop and do something in our business to help make a process better by 5, 10, 15%. Simple things do make a difference. It’s important not to forget that.
