”..Their busy schedule gives them an elevated sense of importance. But it’s an illusion. They’re like hamsters running on the wheel.”
Unproductive people create waste at an exponential level to a productive person. Meetings, emails, poorly constructed discussions, planning or a lack of initiative all add up to unproductive people acting as a tumorous cancer in an organisation.
All the self help blogs and movies remind us, time is the most valuable asset one has. How you use your time is on you, but to waste someone else’s time is the biggest sin and so often goes unchallenged within an organisation, whether it be government, corporate or agency.
Most organisations will have a waste and recycle policy to reduce the amount of energy, water or product they consume. But those same organisations also consume something more valuable from society which isn’t as treated as a target to actively reduce. Time.
