Personal ROI – Accept or Decline

lifeistooshort

I’ve been thinking a lot about “time” – my time, company time, family time…

I see time wasted all over the place, I hear people talking about wasted time, I see inaction and I see great uses of time and resources.

So I’ve had enough of wasting any time, mine, yours and everybody elses. To achieve balance “time” needs to deliver “value” otherwise what’s the point?

So from now on I’m going to start to re-dress the balance, every internal meeting, every conference call and every client meeting needs to deliver me, or my family, or my colleagues or my company an ROI.

Every time I receive a meeting request I’m going to question it’s value, I’m gonna do the maths in my head, work out the Personal ROI, then decide whether to click “Accept or Decline”…

  • Why am I attending?
  • What value will the other attendees add to me?
  • What will this meeting/call add to our client?
  • What will this meeting/call add to our project?
  • What will this meeting/call add to our company?
  • What value will I add?

Life is too short to waste on delivering “nothing”…
I am valuable…
I have something to add…
I am worth more than this…

Click “Decline” and go deliver.
