Time Investment –> Working Smarter

I think it’s important to identify some multipliers and exponents and using them effectively.  


  • organization
  • data tracking
  • effective ongoing communication


  • volunteers/interns/helpers
  • teamwork
  • planning
  • purpose

I think it’s worth it to think about the subtracters too and try to limit them.


  • long meetings with results that disappear into the ether
  • emergencies
  • unnecessary data entry, confusion, complicated procedures, reporting, redundancy
  • feeling overwhelmed, panicked, or otherwise out of control
Now, how to translate this into working smarter?  How can I implement this insight given what I’m actually able to control?
