I Tend To Be Too Thourough , Try And Finish Everything And Try And Do A Really Good Job Everytime
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I worked today , but I don't feel to hot about it !!

Lets say that you didn't have any core values or priority system at all. Your busy at work over and over and over , but . How come you don't fill so good . Your working and your getting things done , but . Here's one option of what might be taking place . You're working on a bad idea instead of a good idea . Even if you do your best work on a bad idea , it's still a bad idea .

Being too thourough to often can actually be a bad habit . It's not a good idea . I know because I got that habit . It's better to keep your core values in the back of your head and remember your good smart flexible to some point priority system in mind when you're working and know when it smarter not to be so thorough so often .

You can actualy created some of your own problems and stress , because you expect your self to finish every single thing you start . And besides that you're constantly thinking about one of those other list other than your things to do list . The list of things not done yet .

And that doesn't even include the gigantic list of things you could do . Which is a big catagory by itself . It's almost like its own world by it self .

Do you try and do a really good job every time you do something . I have been there and done that ; sometimes for more than one chapter in my life in a row . I have learned to work smarter as the years have gone by . Sometimes I think you are actually better off doing your second best work a small part of the time . You know , occasionally here and there .

Lets say you already got a couple of important things done for the day and you're kindof killing time . You're mainly working slow just trying to think about what's important to do next that would be productive and smart . But you still feel good about the two priorities you got done , so you already had a good day basically . Just do a couple of less important smaller task ( priority level 3 or 4 ) . But its pretty much your second best work and not your best work . That idea has worked good for me . One reason is my second best work is pretty descent as it is .

I understand the importance and value and benefit of considering quality at least a little more important than quanity .
