Word-Of-the-Week #629: Awareness

August 24, 2016 by  

Awareness attentive and well informed.

How would you rate your awareness factor? How attentive are you? How important is it for you to be well informed?

This week’s WOW comes from long time friend and subscriber Joe who sent this response to WOW #627 on Overwhelm.

Joe writes, “The key for me is the awareness. I know recently when I started a new job, there were days when I was not used to the processes at the office it took me longer to get some things done because I was so new.

There were a few late nights, but I did finish what I needed to do and finally did get down the processes necessary to get things done.

What I try to remember is to do one thing at a time. Then move on to the next thing because I know that I can’t do it all at once. If I try that, I won’t finish anything correctly.

Once I have my awareness, then I can plan my next steps. Occasionally, it will include changing time frames or not biting off more than I can chew.

I try simply to take one thing at a time as best as I can. Then it gets done.

After being in the work world for over 30 years I have a pretty good handle on what I can get done and when. That experience has been extremely helpful.

But we can’t shy away from the challenges. Those help us grow and achieve things that we never thought we could.”

This week’s focus is on awareness. Do you pay close attention and are you observant at work? Do you tend to multi task or do one thing at a time? Do you know the items needed before you take on a project?
