Now I'm done thinking

Datum: 2011-01-17 09:36

Now I’ve cho­sen my words for 2011

It took a few days for the words to fall into place this year (and per­haps they still haven’t set­tled in just yet).
But, here they are at long last. Stiern­holm Con­sult­ing will under the year of 2011 be char­ac­ter­ized by:

  • Con­cen­tra­tion — It keeps get­ting clear­er to me how essen­tial it is for me to be able to con­cen­trate in order to get a lot done and enjoy myself in the mean­time. For me, con­cen­tra­tion is strong­ly con­nect­ed with pri­or­i­tiz­ing. I work as con­cen­trat­ed as pos­si­ble when I am cer­tain of that what I am doing right now is the right thing to do right now, and every­thing else is put on hold. Dur­ing 2011 I am more than care­ful with what I pri­or­i­tize, so that I have time for the not so urgent, but still impor­tant, tasks.
  • Less — Few things stim­u­late my inspi­ra­tion more right now than emp­ty spaces, few dis­trac­tions and a min­i­mal amount of bal­last. I enjoy remov­ing things, sounds and things to remem­ber. Dur­ing 2011 I trow away, close down, turn off, emp­ty out, clean away – and get more space in return for any­thing I want to focus on right now.
  • Sim­pli­fy – Last year was a year of strong accel­er­a­tion. To keep accel­er­at­ing in a sus­tain­able way, the busi­ness’ process­es need to be sim­pli­fied, espe­cial­ly the details. Dur­ing 2011 I ask myself as often as I can remem­ber to do so; How can we make this eas­i­er?” and Does this real­ly need to be done, or can we find a shortcut?”.

This will be exciting. 

How it turns out will reveal itself in the words I choose for 2012.
