Time Wasters

Let us not waste time...
  • designing rules to control people who do not respect rules;

  • sending a memo to all when we really mean it for one;

  • investigating which person in a dispute is more to blame when it is evident that the relationship itself is dysfunctional;

  • giving motivational pep talks in-between highly demoralizing behavior;

  • applying convenient labels that permit us to cease thinking;

  • talking when we'd learn more by listening; and

  • acting so we can say we acted when in reality we have done nothing of substance.
