Do you ever find that you get to the end of a day and you look back on it and wonder what on earth did I achieve today? Has this ever happened to you at the end of a week?
I was talking with a good friend of mine over the weekend. She was telling me that she had to have a chat with one of her team members and let him know that his role was being terminated.
I asked her why, and she said that he works extremely hard – he just doesn’t seem to get anything done. She even told me that on some occasions he is working past midnight.
She went on to explain that he doesn’t even know this is happening. He thinks he is being productive, and there is a lot of delusion going on. He has a case of majoring in the minor – and I think a lot of people get caught up in this. That is – they are extremely busy doing the wrong things.
It reminds me when the producers of Shrek were interviewed. They were explaining that they made a decision to NOT animate the background of their movies. This decision saved them millions of dollars. When asked why, they simply explained, “our audience doesn’t even notice the background so why animate it?”. I think this is a very important idea. How many people work on things that your audience or others don’t care about or even notice?
