Procrastinators often get bogged down as the result of their inability to distinguish between the important and the unimportant, as well as between a worthy cause and an unworthy one.

They lead by example.
They serve others.
They ask for the things they need from others.
They welcome and appreciate the contributions of others.

“We sure will. Every employee will be involved in its creation, so that everyone has an opportunity to buy into it. A compelling vision will be grounded on our past but focused on our future. So the purpose of everything we do in the present will be designed to lead us into tomorrow. Our vision will be very straightforward and we will express it in simple terms. It will help us know who we are, why we are

So you’re saying that we will have a clearly defined vision for our company?

where they’re going, they have no clue whether the next action they take—the next activity they engage in—will help take them there.”

After all, if they don’t know

when the vision is unclear—or fuzzy—the results are fuzzy. People tend to procrastinate when they don’t have a clear picture of who they are, where they are at this moment, and where they want to go.

So you’re saying that adding a cushion of time offers the opportunity to do ‘more, better, faster, differently,’ and with less chance for error?”

PROPRIETY: THE BILL OF RIGHTS
Do the right thing.
Do it for the right reasons.
Do it with the right people.
Do it at the right time.
Do it in the right order.
Do it with intensity.
Do it for the right results.
