The privilege to work is a gift.
The power to work is a blessing.
The love of work is success.
(the 9th LDS church President, David O McKay)
Following my last post
Time is the wrong matrix to use when evaluating work done by an employee. It’s not about how much time the employee works or you work it’s how effective they/you use the time. From my ergonomics observation If it’s merely about time it feels like punishment more like pain in the hindquarters or ass and the employees won’t wait to knock off work only to be stuck in traffic. Also from my experience of working with PAs and employees alike, giving them autonomy is key to increasing their effectiveness better yet they fall in love with they craft. Hey ho, they might even come up with better ideas than you to run your business or life.
There is a fallacious saying which states that “if you want something well done do it yourself”. This will only waste time and to some extent unwise as the late Steve Jobs said the best things (resources) in life are free. For instance time doesn’t costs any money so use it wisely.
