Albert Einstein on Measurement

Albert Einstein on Measurement

Let me be clear – I believe that everything can be measured. Every thing. Including Love, Derek Jeter’s intangibles (that’s a baseball joke), and even the distance between Republicans and Democrats. Not everything that counts can be counted. Not everything that can be counted counts. – Albert Einstein While I

Goals Increase Satisfaction

Goals Increase Satisfaction

It’s been documented that goals increase satisfaction. The works of Locke and Latham and the Gallup Organization cover this thoroughly. When we’re equipped with goals, we can feel forward progress, reach milestones, and gauge our own strength. If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates

Albert Einstein on Time

Albert Einstein on Time

Albert Einstein was attributed with a lot of really smart, funny quotes during and after his lifetime. Some of these quotes were actually his. Here’s one quote I love (and hope he really said): The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once. – Albert Einstein

What You Waiting For?

What You Waiting For?

Tick, tock, tick, tock… This video by Gwen Stefani brilliantly captures how hard it is to get started and how easy it is to get sidetracked. What are your distractions? Hopefully you’ve graduated past Pong! How do you manage them? And… the million-dollar-question… what are YOU waiting for?   Share

Goals Drive Accountability

Goals Drive Accountability

A few years ago, I was tasked with reducing costs for a service team. As I looked at the numbers, one engineer was spending three times as much on parts as his colleagues. A little investigation make it clear that he was making bad decisions. I then found out that

The Myth of Annual Goals

The Myth of Annual Goals

Annual goals really bug me. Why? Because they don’t create any energy – not until the end of the year, anyway. The time is always right to do what’s right. – Martin Luther King Concepts like ‘week’, ‘month’, ‘quarter’, and ‘year’ are arbitrary. Useful; but arbitrary. Why execute a 20%

Goals Relieve Boredom

Goals Relieve Boredom

As a kid, I – like most kids – hated washing the dishes. Until, that is, my parents turned it into a game. My brother and I (later my sister and I) would compete to see who could wash the most dishes with the winner getting a prize (licking the

What Are You Busy About?

What Are You Busy About?

Ninety percent of the people I talk to tell me that they are ‘real busy’. On the other hand, about eighty percent of those tell me that their work does not engage them. And most leaders will tell you that the work their employees are focusing on does not ‘move

Goals Spur Creativity

Goals Spur Creativity

Yesterday, we said that “Goals Encourage Planning”. They inspire the question, “What are the steps we need to complete in order to accomplish this goal”? At some point during the planning process, however, you will inevitably move from asking “What will we do?” to “How the heck will we do

A Big Fish Requires a Big Net

A Big Fish Requires a Big Net

I love this saying, because it’s so visual. If one casts a small net, cannot catch big fish. – Chinese Proverb This proverb always reminds me of the scene in Jaws, when Roy Scheider says, “You’re going to need a bigger boat”. This applies to goals in two ways: To

Goals Encourage Planning

Some people claim that goals are unnecessary. “I’m not a CEO. I don’t need goals to get through the day. I just freely experience the wonderful bounty of life”. Yet that same person is planning a backpacking trip across Europe. Here’s news for you. If you’re doing any level of

Things That Cannot Be Measured

Things That Cannot Be Measured

Let me list them here: Those blanks are not a mistake… of all the myths that exist in our world, this is one of my favorites. I hear it all the time, “You don’t understand, Glenn. What we’re working on cannot be measured or quantified”. This is where I expect

Goals Enable Feedback

Goals Enable Feedback

I’m sure something like this has happened to you. You decide to do some cleaning around the house. You and your family or roommates start cleaning. At some point, one person gets bored and stops. Another person wants to keep going. At the end of the day, someone asks, “How’d

Three Questions For Playing The Game of Life

Three Questions For Playing The Game of Life

If we accept the premise that life is a sort of game that we’re all playing (in fact, I would argue it is THE game and that all other ‘games’ are simplifications/simulations of the game of life that allow us a degree of control we don’t possess over life) then
