One of the traits I’ve noticed in high performers is a constant desire to move fast.
But not just on the big things. On everything.
They always ask: why can’t we do this sooner?
Small tasks in particular:
David Allen’s 2-minute rule is similar: if a task will take less than 2 minutes, do it right away.
We tend to spend too much time on small things, and not enough time on big things.
It’s a problem common to both tasks and decision-making.
For the big things, take your time. Think it through carefully, and once you’ve made your decision, execute fast.
Spend less time on the small things: figure out how to get them done as quickly as possible.
Your execution speed will increase drastically.
