If I asked you what your current work priorities were, could you answer quickly and confidently? What about the priorities of the company at large? If you’re struggling, you’re not alone. It’s difficult to rank to-dos, projects, initiatives, and KPI’s when everything seems vital and pressing.
One way to improve this is to make trade-offs explicit, by choosing one thing over another thing. Done well, it will result in focus, clarity, alignment, better decision-making, and competitive edge. In my latest article
, I want to share with you a practical method that we often use with our clients: the even over statement
Even overs can be applied practically anywhere. They can be used in defining a product strategy, company values, team working agreements, or for seeking behavior change.
For example, here are my new year’s resolutions:
- Being present with the kids even over A longer work week
- Reading in bed even over Netflix & snacks
- Morning meditation even over 15 min extra deep work
- Walking while calling with friends & family even over Waiting for better physical meetings
