Who would’ve imagined that “productivity” would be an industry? Goals, outcomes, deadlines, whatever you call them, are an inherent, inescapable way of life and leadership. We set goals for ourselves as individuals, teams, organisations. Despite this, it is important to just dream. I’m not talking about the, “In a perfect world…” brainstorming. I mean simple, plain, dreaming. Dreaming to no particular end.
I do my best to journal. I rarely read what I’ve written in any systematic way. When I read my journal it is usually mere perusing. I recently found notes I made after a series of failures. You know what, there are many things failure reminds me.
You don’t want to pay ‘too much’. ‘Unreasonable price’ is a subjective. This is why we can be on the hunt for cheap. We sometimes use synonymous or words similar. ‘Cost effective’ is one of the terms used instead, sometimes. Our search for bargains, however we interpret that, can put us in danger of cheap deceit.
“Looking forward to…” Words I haven’t said out loud in a while. A lot of what I’m looking forward to is in mindmaps, safe in a secret location. I’m back to using mindmaps as a thought clarifying process. They’re great for brainstorming and outlining processes. I like to pencil in details while having the entire picture in sight.
I haven’t written as much as I would’ve loved over the last few years. I’ve shared some of the reasons I write are here, here and here. Those are not all the reasons, just some. Writing is one of the things I’ve had a desire and, I guess, a fair aptitude for, for as long as I can remember. This is a blog post about an important blog I wrote.
