Since 2002 many companies have been working on reorganizing, driving efficiency, globalizing, transform, and the list goes on. Many people have been impacted positively and negatively by the decisions that were, and are, made by company owners to preserve and grow profits. That’s right; it’s all about the money –never lose sight of this in the area of work.
Some people confuse the end game with their perceptions and beliefs of how the world works. The bottom line is companies are in the business of keeping and creating value for their owners. Along the chain of value creation, people mentally and physically turn the crank in creating values for the owners. Yes, in turning the value crank for a company, the worker’s return is some mutually agreed on wage; this is the company – worker transaction. It’s a transaction – nothing more, nothing less –never lose sight of this in the area of work.
Since I can remember, companies have been working smarter and smarter, increasing decision-making quality, reshaping the way value is maintained and created. Companies have been on the job of doing their job, which is working faster, smarter, and cheaper with acceptable quality to maintain and increase profit.
Now you may be asking yourself, “How does this information help me?”. Well, companies over the years have been driving toward working smarter…Have you ever asked yourself, what if I was to take the same “smart” approach to manage your life?
What would it be worth if you could reduce your costs in the areas of time and money? What if you could make the same money 80% of the time while at the same time reducing your costs and increasing the quality of your life? Would that interest you?
What would impact your life if you incorporated a “continuous improvement” approach to managing your personal bottom line? Clearly, for the companies that have successfully introduced “CI” programs into their “way of doing business,” the results have been notable. Why would the results be any different for you?
What if you were able to increase your personal productivity, reduce your costs, create new opportunities for yourself, reduce waste in your life, and ultimately increase your quality of life?
Would you do it?
Each week fixmefirst. I will introduce an improvement tool and approach that may increase your quality of life.
