Have An Empty Email Inbox? Made It On a ‘Best-Of’ List? This Does Not Necessarily Mean You Are Successful.

The point of executing this criteria is to achieve a new goal that will ultimately place us, the team or the company in a better position. It could be a better financial position, a healthier physical state or a more secure place emotionally.

 

However, not all criteria are created equally. There are certain measurements of success that fall prey to what I call “feel good” metrics — numbers or percentages that make us feel good about achieving them, but, when we step back and look at the bigger picture, they don’t really matter. It’s easy to get sucked into measuring something because it can be measured, but just because the capacity is there doesn’t mean the results actually drive value.

 

Don’t get bitten by the immediate-feedback bug. Below are four “value-less” measurements of success to place at the bottom of your checklist (you can rest assured that “cash” is not on this list).

 

Think a clean email inbox is a sign of being productive? Think again. Just because you fired off yet another email means nothing in terms of productivity, because the message sent isn’t always the message received. It doesn’t mean that the tasks in the email will be accomplished. I can’t tell you how many emails I miss, not because I don’t check my inbox, but because there are so many to read.

 

Every person, team and company has criteria for success. They may be exercise habits, participation or customer surveys. For any endeavor, having clear criteria for success allows us to gauge where we are along the productivity continuum. In other words, having clear criteria for success gives immediate feedback as to what has been accomplished and what is yet to be accomplished.
