So this is my “work office”.
Problem: My workspace is awesome, too awesome in fact. I like to think of it as the Bathsheba of work places; if I’m not careful it’ll seduce me away from my responsibility.
Solution: Two principles I live by at BlitzMetrics. Do, Delegate, Delete (DDD) and Learn, Do, Teach (LDT).
The first principle is simple; Do, Delegate, Delete, DDD for short. Natural inclination is to skim over and procrastinate work responsibilities (school included here). By following DDD you can accomplish tasks and efficiently manage your time.
Anytime a task pops up the natural marketer in all of us is inclined to push it off. Don’t do that.
When you get an e-mail, open it and go through it right then. If you can’t do that, delegate it. Then when you’re finished with something delete or categorize it.
By following DDD I keep my unread inbox at zero everyday. Sometimes this takes an hour or two spent only in my inbox. But I’m able to stay on top of my workload.
DDD is effective, but it is only the “How” of productive work. Without a “Why” you’ll never be successful.
Learn, Do, Teach is the “Why”.
The reason I’m able to maintain my drive to work from home is simple. I believe in LDT. I’m not in marketing for the money. LDT is about having an impact at what you do aside from monetary results.
Call me old fashioned, but I still believe in making a positive difference in the world. LDT is the first ripples of positive change.
DDD and LDT are two of nine core principles my company (BlitzMetrics) fundamentally teaches. We call them the 9 triangles. Each of the triangles contains principles that transcend past marketing. They hold true to various aspects of life.
If you’d like to know more about the 9 triangles message me on my Facebook page.
Other than that, I’d like to know what 3 items you’d put in your dream office? An icee machine, a putting green, a massage chair, etc, comment below.
