Have you ever considered what is needed to effectively accomplish a task? I’ve been turning this over in my head for the past few days as I meditated on several things that I needed to happen at one of my stores. Here is what I came up with:
- Tools – having the proper tools is critical
- Knowledge – tools are worthless if you don’t know how to use them
- Training – book knowledge is great, training is better
- Willingness – nothing happens unless someone is willing to make it happen
- Experience – many tasks are much better performed by experienced people
- Enthusiasm – working with enthusiasm is the difference between getting something done and getting it done efficiently
- Commitment - a commitment to excellence and doing it right
Doing something, and doing it well, requires all seven components. Is there anything else I should consider adding to the list? Leave me a comment!
