Assess blog image smallThis blog is the fourth installment regarding the last attribute that Michael Hyatt proposes in his article ‘Creating a Sense of Urgency’.
The fourth attribute is Assess. In his article, Hyatt states that urgency doesn’t rule out assessment, in fact it demands it. The author is adamant that assessing assists in eliminating what works, and what doesn’t work. He challenges the reader to question everything as to whether or not it impedes or facilitates the desired outcome.
Hyatt follows up with strategies that the reader can implement in everyday practices. Examples of strategies are eliminating unnecessary paperwork, responding faster to emails and voicemails, keeping meetings short and to the point, be quick to change tactics, and last but not least, do it now!
I found the author’s article thought-provoking, and I appreciated his efforts to move theory into practice.
