Your best just got better



Leaders with too much to do, and too little time, still must try to improve a little bit and become more productive each day, Womack contends. Start by sketching what an ideal day would look like. You can accomplish more by doing less, particularly if you do not hurry. Take “the magic five minutes” to look over completed work for mistakes. Then consider “the five people you spend the most mind-share with through the week,” and how you interact with and learn from them. Focus is a precious resource, and Womack encourages you to consider where and when you do your deepest thinking.
