Excellent book from Peter Druckner – About decision and effectiveness

In this weekend I read an excellent book “About decision and effectiveness “, from Peter Drucker. Here are some nice things to remember: – ask yourself what must be done always when in a new position – define your short, middle and long term objectives. Long term = years long term – focus on opportunities, not on problems. Focus on strong points not on weak points – there is a very weak correlation between how smart, imaginative and knowledge a person is and his effectiveness! – don’t consume yourself working. Is just like I said: “Working too much is bad for your money!” – inside an organization only efforts and costs are produces, not added value. – the bigger the entity, the bigger percentage of the resources are focused towards sustaining itself – be aware on what you are throwing away your time and minimize it – the meetings should be as short and effective as possible. Stop socializing and wasting time. – all managers should focus increasing their contributions to the company by focusing ONLY on their strong points. – kill all unproductive activities – “which activities from my schedule can be better performed and by whom?” – delegate! – valorification of the strong points is the ONLY purpose of the organization – 2 mediocrities at work value less than 1 mediocrity – focus. you need to have self-discipline + the strong will to say NO – those that never realize nothing work more than the those who do ­čÖé – think big, not wave based. the fashion will change in 1 year time – do one thing...
