These are just some of the reasons why Focus was created
- Too busy for 1-2-1 - Too busy to get lunch - In back to back meetings all week - Late to important meetings - Thinking being busy is work - Complain how busy you are in every meeting - Staring at yourself on videos calls not paying attention - One person talks more than the whole group - Can’t face another meeting with no actions! - Working in “other peoples” meeting as no other time - Awkward silence when asked “are there any questions” - “Have you spoken to x” - instead of owning the problem - Being double booked as default - Not sure if I should hit send to raise another problem - Editing PowerPoint slides with 5 minutes to spare before next meeting - Reforecasting for the third time this week with the list of same points previously raised - Another meeting to make a “decision” - Only reading the exec summary of someone else's meeting pre read - In another weekly team meeting without any delivery or moving any meaningful numbers or targets - Disagreeing to commit is only way to make “progress” - Sitting silently to get out of the this meeting so don’t get anymore to dos - Hard stops are constantly declared - Waiting for the HIPPO to make the decision - “I'm ok with that that decision IF” statements
These are all excuses and shows a bad company foundation. If you or your leaders need any help address a company wide acceptance of this, email firstname.lastname@example.org
