Favoritism – 10 Lessons to Build an Efficient Organization #5

Introduction to the 10 Lessons to Build an Efficient Organization series

My series of Sun Tzu (who one of the most influential Chinese philosophers) is focused on the topic of how to develop an efficient organization. You might think that these are trivial things and they should be. However, I see that even these trivial things are not working in many organizations. I had to conclude that the fundamental rules of leadership are non-trivial as ego, pride, emotions and thought patterns come in the way.

Manager’s commentary: People must be selected for a task on the basis of their ability – not on nepotism or favoritism.

Manager’s commentary: Much alignment can be built through the basics of:

Setting Objectives

Measuring performance against those objectives

Plan coordinated efforts – 10 Lessons to Build an Efficient Organization #2

If these issues are not fixed in the long term, the company will lose money, customers and finally will fall and disappear. If they recognize and act in time, all can be changed and efficiency could be increased. Overcoming challenges together as a team builds trust and develops powerful teams. Every environment is different and constantly changing, however, I believe that the underlying principles are the same. I aim to share these lessons and to inspire others to question the status quo and think proactively to find a better way.

Boost your focus / creativity by listening to music

Idea

Many of us like to listen to background music when we are working on anything which involves creative processes like painting or writing. There are certain music styles or ways to listen to music which help us to focus. I’ll describe a couple of these.

How?

Listenonrepeat

One of my favorite tools for focusing is a website called listenonrepeat which lets you repeat the same music track unlimited times. This service is using youtube as a source, however, feel free to use any music player which supports looping of the same track.

What to do in emergency (and how to avoid dangerous situations) during road and mountain biking

Introduction

I’ve made a serious mistake when I’ve ignored the orange wind alert for the Canton and still went out road biking. I’ve seen that there is an alert and that it will rain, however, I wanted to go for a quick one hour ride and didn’t check the details too much. The orange alert means: significant hazard: highest wind gusts in exposed locations: in the plains: 90-120 km/h. I should have understood and evaluated the risks before going out.
