Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
Interesting question! Efficiency is doing things right and effectiveness is doing the right things. We achieve more when we focus on doing the right things. Being too much of a perfectionist and trying to get everything absolutely right can hold you back from achieving your goals. I've learned that the hard way, in fact I'm still learning it
both, I want to make all the right things in the right way. I don't like to make mistakes, i like to do everything perfectly.
Do you like to do everything perfectly Rasha, or are there some tasks that you are just happy to complete to a certain standard, without them being done perfectly?
We should strive to do the right things, however at times this can conflict with doing things right. If we focus on doing the right thing although it may not always seem like it's beneficial to us, in the long run we will be the ones to gain from it. There's a quote from Warren G. Bennis that's very applicable to your question, “Leaders are people who do the right thing; managers are people who do things right.”
Well Fergal, I like to do everything perfectly and in the right way. I know that nobody is perfect, but I'm trying my best ..
the right things sounds relative. The right things depends for the right person doing this right.
SO it all depends from personality.
I prefer doing both of them
