Effectiveness over EffortsMakarand Vaidya
“Thinking well is wise; planning well wiser; doing well wisest and best of all.”
“We fixed more than a hundred issues during the last week.” Parth is a very energetic developer and has very sharp debugging skills. When he comes across a defect he can’t take a rest before it is fixed. More challenging, the better.
“Wow! That is great. So when is the release?”
“It was scheduled to last Friday, but there is still some issue with Onboarding. So not sure what is the next date.”
Parth was a little bit unhappy, as he was expecting praise for fixing so many defects.
But he missed the point to fix something that needed urgent attention.
When there are a lot of things to do, it is very essential to make sure that we are focused on the end results. Putting in hard work that does not contribute to the required output is wasted effort.
Focus on Effectiveness and not Just Efforts.
