First Reaction/First Glance
In the 1970's and early 1980's the North Carolina Tar Heels developed and perfected the Four Corner Offense in college basketball. This technique was developed to stall the game against their opponent after a sizable lead was established in order to preserve the win.
At work do you find yourself in the stall mode when a daunting task is at hand? Let's go to the white board.
The Learning Process
There have been many times in my career that I have stalled my own progress by letting lingering tasks go uncompleted. I allow excuses like, not enough time, too time consuming, this is out of my comfort zone, or it just doesn’t motivate me.
I have found over the years that when I breakdown any assignment/task into smaller segments then the completion seems more achievable and less overwhelming.
Improvement for the Future
As challenging tasks are assigned to you here are some suggestions in helping you complete them:
Seek guidance and help from a fellow employee who has more knowledge and can provide valuable insight.
Write down the task and the segments and keep it in your view or add to your task list in Microsoft Outlook with reminders.
Give yourself goal dates to complete each segment and discipline yourself to meet them.
Present your information to a friend, co-worker, or family member for positive feedback.
GOOD LUCK AND REMEMBER TO TURN ON YOUR SHOT CLOCK SO YOU CAN WIN MORE GAMES!!!
