How to Work Faster

What to do About That Feeling That You’re Not Going Fast Enough

I want to legitimize my site and bring my vision into reality. I’m just beginning, and it’s hard. Creating content isn’t hard. What’s hard is the fact that I feel like I’m not going fast enough. I feel this way about most of what I do, not just this. This feeling is something I’ve worked on before and I I have picked up some strategies along the way to combat this.

I don’t want to pack up and call it a day. I haven’t failed. I want to create and I want to create multitudes. So I do these things to enable myself to keep going. I want to find a way to handle it and make a way to sustain it. Just because I do things the way I do them doesn’t mean it’s the best way to do them. In fact it’s often not.

Sensory Overwhelm is a Real Thing

There is too much going on. It’s a fact.

Get More Specific with your Objectives

When I’m not creating, I’m consuming. A lot of time it’s empty calories, but sometimes it’s content with an ROI. One of those good things I consumed was The Toyota Way. Toyota has a set of principles that they apply to their business, the DNA of their business. Toyota’s MO is making the best use of their resources available. In Japan that’s a necessity due to the limited nature of available resources. The relevant principle here is the principle of production leveling. Define what is consistently attainable and do that every day, no more no less. By forcing yourself to figure out how to achieve a steady output you find a way to work with the constraints.

Focus on The NEXT High Impact Thing
