Teamwork is definitely something missing in a lot of work environments. It shouldn’t be. http://ow.ly/mkP14
Companies like Apple and organizations like our government miss the boat when they lose their focus on teams.
There was a time when sitting down on the beach would have been impossible for me.
I did not think that I had time to waste on a beach.
Today I believe that I am working harder than ever, yet I manage to take the time to relax by the water.
I think it has something to do with learning that how much you work has little to do with what you actually accomplish.
Relaxing by the water helps me clear my head these days. I make time for it and for kayaking which works just as well.
In spite of all our technological advances most people have trouble figuring out what they need to do.
I recently got to watch an example. Someone made a mistake a few years ago that resulted in a problem recently.
Not surprisingly a lot of time was spent trying to figure out where to place the blame.
That is actually the most unproductive activity that you can have in a company.
What does it matter if everyone has Blackberry phones if they have a problem and spend four days assigning blame before it occurs to them to solve the problem?
Long ago I learned that mistakes happen. People rarely mean for them to happen. The best thing is to treat a mistake as a learning experience and immediately focus on solving the problem.
Because if you don’t solve the problem immediately, it will likely get worse. By the time you turn your attention to it, the problem might not be fixable.
One of the main rules in our Apple federal group was that if you found a problem, what I expected was a solution not a post mortem on the situation.
All the technology in the world won’t replace common sense. And that is the way I see it from the beaches of North Carolina.
If a beach walk like this slide show can’t help you clear your head, then you are headed for trouble.
