Too busy!!

Busy, busy, busy, everyone is too busy to do anything important.

We have had a reshuffle of the federal cabinet, busy people, dedicating limited  time to gay marriage and other such important matters, a client of mine is so busy some the basic management stuff simply does not get done, and most large organisations I see are so busy reviewing and planning that there is little time left for doing.

Three simple rules to get more done:

    1. Keep it simple
    2. Be prepared to fail sometimes
    3. Have a go.

In a lovely juxtaposition last night, there was a rerun on one of the digital channels of the “Yes Minister” episode  dealing with a rumoured reshuffle, and Minister Hacker reviewing his options. Very close to the current bone.

Stop being busy, and to borrow the phrase, “just do it”
