“Close The Loop”
Closing the loop means tinkering with our workflow until all the components work smoothly together, weeding out the unnecessary at every turn and replacing anything that doesn’t work as well as it should.
This fifth step from the book “What to Do When There’s Too Much To Do.” is to synchronize, put together all the former steps,
- Determine what to do
- Schedule time to do it
- Focus your attention
- Process new information
And to be prepared for the last but not least step, “Manage Your Capacity.”
I have started to do it, taking in consideration the results that I got, some feedback online and offline, improving my discipline, it’s hard eh, commitments, distractions, new information, etc. The concept here is, “Helping You, Helps Me.”
- Improve my verbal and writing communication skills in English
- Improve how to organize my physical and computer files
- How to take complementary or supplementary action when I need data or information of somebody in and out of my teamwork
- Reducing inefficiencies and bottlenecks, e.g.,
- Planning to have my emails account hosted in my own Hosting
- Use auto-responder
- Activities that address me to my Big Why, to my Big Purpose
- Apply the concept of Networking Total
Two sections that grabbed my attention were, “Rising From the Ashes,” and “Continued Progress Requires Constant Reevaluation.”
Finally, humility to learn, pay attention, a You and I communication and contact, not I and It.
