Things don’t get done if people don’t do them.
Things: stuff that needs to happen. If this stuff is left hanging, other things – maybe more important things, dependent things, things that other people are waiting to do, things that you’d like to happen – won’t get done either. And your world, and those of people around you, will grind to a hang on, we’re-just-killing-time, frustration-fest.
Don’t get done: remain … erm … hold on there, won’t be long now … erm …
People: could be you, could be one of your team, could be someone you depend on, could be someone you need to act.
Don’t do them: do nothing. Nothing useful or actionable or definitive. Breathe in, breathe out, do nothing.
Get in the car and pull out of the driveway.
Don’t be the don’t-doer.
Do what you say you’re going to do, and make sure your team do to.
Skippy strategy: Get it done.
