"To become more efficient, ask better questions" [Creator's Block, Ep. 115]

Blog Feature

October 30th, 2019 min read

At the beginning of October, I created a goal for myself to have more time available for me to read and research business-related articles and books.

Why?

Because leaders are readers.

It should come as no surprise then that I learned this in a book called Scaling Up: How a Few Companies Make It...and Why the Rest Don't by Vern Harnish.

In it, he talks about how Larry Page, the former CEO of Google, "was asked how he learned to run a company, he responded 'I read a lot.'"

He also mentions how Marc Cuban reads three hours every day, with the goal to find "just one idea he can use to give him and the over 150 companies in which he's invested an edge in the marketplace."

As Harnish wrote, "having a natural curiosity and thirst for learning separates the good from the great in our experience."

Now, I'm no Larry Page or Marc Cuban, but that doesn't mean I can't take some of their best practices and apply it to my own day-to-day. 

Hence why my Tuesday afternoons have now turned into a dedicated time for me to read.

During my time this week, I came across an article by Thomas Oppong titled "To Become More Efficient, Ask Better Questions."

I immediately dove in.

His approach is intriguing and honestly, not all that difficult.

Essentially, you should be asking yourself better questions that can then lead to better and stronger results. Questions like:

  • What specific outcomes do I want more of?
  • Am I working too long or too short of a time for certain tasks?
  • Am I trying to be more effective (i.e., doing the right things) or more efficient (i.e., doing things right)?
  • When do I have the most energy?
  • What 1–3 things would I like to have done (today, this week, this month, this quarter, this year)

Each of those questions can help you come to realizations or ideas on how to be more productive and improve your efficiency.

In this week's episode, Marcella and I share our opinions on the subject and brainstorm how we can apply these questions to aspects of our days.
