Good morning. I hope all is well with you and yours.
The ‘Q3 comment’ prompting your curiosity was a bit on purpose, as Lincoln Kokaram encouraged me to open up the following dialog with others.
Our R24D4 team took a FranklinCovey 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity class a few days ago, hosted by Lincoln.
During the presentation, it became apparent that your efforts to understand and eliminate some of the ‘nonsensical tasks’ fits well into the 5 Choices premise.
The premise of 5 Choices is based on a time matrix grid representing Urgent/Not Urgent, Important/Not Important activities in our day.
With our time being spent in these areas, identifying which ones represent the best use of time, returning the greatest opportunity for productivity, is the objective.
Quadrant 3 (Q3) is represented by very low ROI Valued activities, aka distractions. (Unimportant/Urgent), and includes things like unnecessary, irrelevant, and unimportant activities.
Q2 activities represent behaviors leading to extraordinary productivity: planning, learning, focus on high impact goals, (Important/Not Urgent).
Your statement to me a few months ago about eliminating unnecessary things now translates into “identifying Q3 issues and eliminating them from our radar”.
The end result is less time spent in Q3 (for me) thereby affording greater productivity by a shift of that time into Q2.
5 Choices is a program with tremendous upside, creating clearer situational awareness and offering a process for changing behavior for the better.
I am grateful that I work for a DSM/Company that made this program available to me and encourage you to take advantage of any opportunity to enroll.
As always, THANK YOU for all that you do every day!
