WEEK 1 OCTOBER 2010
I learned a new word on the weekend from Mike Pagan, our MC at the Professional Speaking Association, Annual Convention. It was Faff! It actually doesn’t exist in the dictionary. It is a made up word that is common in the UK and it means “to waste time doing something not necessary.” It got me thinking. How many of us can honestly say we are productive all the time? What do you do to avoid, distract, or hold you back from achieving more? Are you busy doing, rather than achieving? Here are a few gems from Mike himself.
By eliminating just twenty minutes of faff time every day, you will gain two additional weeks of productivity every year.
Everyone can find an idea or a gem that is pertinent to them, the challenge is to implement them, and for most this will only involve changing the odd habit and finding a clearer focus. When you stop faffing about you can create and achieve so much more.
Love and blessings
