My partner is reading a book by John wooden entitled, “Wooden, A Lifetime Of Observations & Reflections On And Off the Court” and found this quote. I LOVE IT.
I think it really applies to recruiting! How easy is it to stay “busy” performing “activities,” returning emails, doing paperwork, reviewing resumes from the net, etc., all day long?
But are you confusing activity for accomplishment?
Are you performing the right tasks at the right time?
Have you prioritized your “to-do” list?
Are you checking off calls on your “to-do” list to say you “made the call,” or . . . did you actually contact the person and get the results you wanted/expected?
Since I didn’t plan my Perfect Day today, I have been responding to emails that are not urgent and/or not very important. It has sucked about 1.5 hours of my day so far.
During this time, I have set 1 appointment, and confirmed one business opportunity, while the most critical task I have to accomplish today (presentation for training next week) is being pushed aside AGAIN (this happened yesterday as well).
With that said, if you are reading this blog, I encourage you to revisit your daily schedule and your “to-do” list RIGHT NOW!
Do you have critical, urgent tasks PLANNED into your daily schedule?
Are you accomplishing important tasks today? Or, are you confusing activity for accomplishment?
Now that I got that off my chest, I am off to a productive day.
