The Flow-Oriented Approach to Effectiveness

Lidor WyssockyBlog

The world is obsessed with productivity. Everyone wants more for less. We measure our productivity, compare it, stressed by it, and eventually, we are alienated by the never-ending pursuit of being more productive. Some have already moved forward to a better way of looking at the “more for less” issue by bringing effectiveness to the front and ditching the simplified more for less mindset. To use the term effectiveness, well, effectively, Stephen Covey defined it as the ability to achieve desired results at a given time while improving our capability to produce even better results in the future. The beauty of this definition is that it aims to balance the short term – the desired results in a specified time – with the longer term – our ability to improve over time.

“The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.”                                                                                                                                               Steven Spielberg No matter how old you are, you probably remember at least two school teachers: the best teacher you had, and (obviously) the worst one. I remember my high school literature teacher. I don’t remember any concrete piece of literature she taught us. I don’t remember any poem or any type of rhyming. I also didn’t do that well in literature. I used to think of myself more as a person of numbers and logic, and less of that fluffy stuff anyone can interpret freely. And yet, I remember my literature teacher as the best teacher I had.
