Often times it can feel like you are working and being as productive as possible.
Getting things done at max capacity and crushing your to-do list.
Yet how often do you check-in to see if you are being as productive as possible? Perhaps you could be more productive doing something else.
Because it is important to notice if you are giving up your best work to yield good work. Taking a step back to review the work you are getting done is essential to being as productive as possible.
So you are making sure you are doing what you do best.
Now, because you are good at something, does not mean you should be the one doing it. There may be tasks you could delegate to boost your productivity while allowing someone else to grow.
This is also why it is important to be aware of your best traits as well as the best traits of your team.
By knowing this information as a leader, and as a team, what appears to be good output can become great.
So take some time to check in with your team. See what new ideas they have, find out who is willing to take on new tasks, and get an idea of new areas to grow.
What comes from those meetings will be new ways to maximize your productivity and your teams potential.
