How To Spot and Eliminate
Waste From Your Day

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • Every activity you do is either adding value, enabling value, or it’s waste.
  • The reason many of us are feeling overwhelmed and frustrated right now is that we spend entirely too much of our days doing things that don’t add or enable value.
  • When you eliminate wasteful activities from your day, you become more efficient and more fulfilled in your work because you are spending time doing what matters most.
  • Sometimes our districts ask us to do things that feel wasteful. But if you approach those district mandates #LikeABuilder, you can turn something wasteful into something valuable.

We're continuing our versus series by looking at the activities you do today. How much of what you do each day is actually adding value, and how much of your day is really waste? Unfortunately, for most of us, we spend more time on wasteful activities than on work that really adds value and it's making us feel more and more overwhelmed, frustrated, and stuck.

So, on today's episode, I'm sharing a tool that helps you identify where the waste is in your day, and more importantly, shows you how to remove that waste and focus on what really matters #LikeABuilder
