A Busiest Executive

Hi all,

It’s been more than a month; I didn’t post a single blog since my friendship day blog. Well let me just describe you what I was doing during that period. I was busy handling my Cognos projects. I have had to do lots of design and code change activities. After that I was also involved in code testing. So somehow I was very much busy with that task. During that small excursion Cognos project, I came across many good thoughts. I didn’t want to lose any of my beautiful thoughts, so I started writing them in to my diary. All of these thoughts were really not creating any strong impact on my mindset. So I just thought of giving some rest to my mind. And after few days guess what happened? I came across superb thought and that’s why I have a very special reason to write this blog. This Sunday evening, I went to temple and there I came across one wonderful sentence. That sentence really encouraged me a lot. I can say it actually changed my way of thinking. Let me just write that for u all. The statement goes like this.

“If you want to get your work Done,
then give that work to a Busiest Executive.”

When I heard this sentence, it just created electrifying effect in my body. It was as if I got new way to tackle all obstacles in path of my life. It was more like getting the perfect and exact direction to successful journey.

Now let me just elaborate on above sentence.

In order to understand the sentence well, let me compare a busiest executive with non-busy executive. For comparison, I have come up with following points.

  • Goal of the day:
In simple words if I have to describe “Goal of the day”, then ask one question to our self. “Which task I have to complete by today” and the answer will give you the Goal of the day. I have seen this factor in all Great Personalities. They all sit down on their bed before sleeping. They think and they write down all tomorrow’s task in their diary. And that’s how they set up their goal for tomorrow. Same is the case with busy executive. They also note down their tomorrow’s task one day before. And that’s why they get the clarity of their work and they develop a new vision for their tomorrow.

When it comes to a non-busy executive, then they have lots of t
ime, so they develop a mindset that, ‘I have lots of time, so rather than doing it today I will do it tomorrow.’ And we all know that such habit leaves deficiency in path of success.
  • Priority setting:
Once the goals are defined, once the vision is clear and once we know that, what is to be done? Then next point is to set the priority of the tasks. Priority setting plays vital role in everyone’s development. After completing first point (Goal of the Day) let’s say, you come across 13 different tasks for tomorrow. Then your next step is to setup the priority in it. Let’s say, Task of Meeting with client is of more priority than the task of paying credit card bill. Here there is only one universal formula being used and that is ‘First thing First’. So a busy executive does his proper priority setting of his tasks. And a non-busy executive doesn’t even think about the priority, because he thinks that I have lots of time, I can do it anytime, no need to worry. And that’s how he lacks behind.
  • Time management:
This factor is very much important in everyone’s life. Once the goal of tomorrow is fixed and priorities are set, then a busy Executive will do proper time management of his day so that he will try to complete his entire tasks. He will work according to his time. He will start and end his day by TIME. He maintains an alignment of his tasks with time. And that’s why he can manage everything. When it comes to a non-busy executive, due to less work, he has lots of time. And due to which he doesn’t do any time management of his day. All his work and task becomes adhoc and unorganized. He keeps on doing the things randomly or in unorganized way. And most of the time it brings low quality work.
  • Proper Planning:
All great personalities spend lots of their time for proper planning of tasks. In the same way, a busy executive also spends his quality amount of time in proper planning of his tasks. He notes down which of the tasks can be done in parallel, which will result in time and efforts save. Here I am remembering one good phrase. “Winners don’t so different things, but they do the things differently” and that’s why, all busy people work well and with proper planning achieves more.
  • Follow up of tasks:
This is the last step which a busy executive always does after every 2 or 3 hours. After every 2 -3 hours, a busy executive keeps on checking his pendi
ng task. this gives him idea of where is he with time. It also tells him how much work he has completed. In other words I can say ‘it gives the clarity of his work with respect to time.’ So that’s how he maintains his work schedule on time.

So from above points, I can say that busiest executive can complete assigned tasks provided he has all above mentioned factors.

Here I need to clarify two points that to be successful in your life you don’t need to be very busy, but all you need to do is to bring above mentioned good qua
lities in life. Example of busiest executive is taken because, it’s very much idol for this blog. And during my thought process I found this character to be challenging and that’s why I bought this character in my blog.
Second point is that, I am not trying to say that Busy executives are worth respected and rest others are not. Everyone in the organization, in the society and in the family has their role defined and everyone has their own values and status. In short, we all are social animals. So bring such good qualities in you, make your life glorious and live it well.

I hope that this blog will give you new direction to live life. This will also help to know yourself from different dimension to the path of personal development.
