Highly Ineffective People Kpalime, Togo West Africa Saturday, April 7, 2007
We need a fun book on this.
No high powered, effective businessperson is going to very happy working for a save-the-planet, do everything wrong NGO or ONG. The Non Governmental Organizations and the United Nations and such are so full of highly ineffective and non-solution producing individuals that not self-respecting producing person would be associated.
There is a book called, - The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Personal Workbook - By: Covey, Stephen R.
There is also a book called the - One Minute Manager, by someone, and somewhere, but more or less about effective and quick goal setting for workers.
I have read both, and now think we need the opposite books, how to do the opposite for good fun, with cartoons, graphics and fun laugh at ourselves, and cry explanations.
- The 7 Habits of Highly In-Effective People or maybe. - The 7 Habits of Highly NON-Effective People
The One Minute Mis-Manager. (It may already exist.)
Ok, I am one of the worst motivators and managers, I know this, I micromanage every worker, and then moralize until they quit, I need a book on how to effectively ignore and over-look, not see any problems by workers.
However, the telling a person how to be effective can sometimes be achieve by telling them in a book, non-threatening, not pointing the finger way, you are doing this.
I cannot find the list of the 7 habits of effective people now, easy and quickly, or I would list them, however, the concepts of books are simple and as is common with good solutions, the are common sense and easy to understand and evade 99 percent of people, so they need books to read and not internalize. We put on a shelf and pretend this is us.
I have been musing and laughing, there is a good case study to done in Africa, and easy to accomplish because of the high ratio of ONG-NGO people in the White Population here. I can find a project worker with extreme ease that is highly ineffective.
Therefore to study and muse about how to be in-effective is easy to study.
How to do every-thing wrong, I can write a book, because the people who demonstrate how to be highly ineffective are here. Then I have to do this big search to find who has already written the book.
Somewhere, I wish to be more effective at having all the answers to my questions readily available. I think a highly effective person can collect, find, and retrieve notes, ideas an answers at warp speed.
(Note - think, try to really think, I am in Africa, and I am doing this, I write in riddles.)
While for a high ineffective person, they do not even get close to the root problems of a complicated question.
To solve AIDS, we need to test all the people, to discover first who has, there has never been a problem that is so easy to solve. If it were really an epidemic or pandemic, we would be testing everyone.
Highly ineffective people give complicated solutions… Hehehe
Like anything I, type above was simple.
Note, Hotels need maintenance people; the simple solution to effectively managing a Hotel is to focus on maintenance, and the cleaning of the toilet become easy because they have water to clean.
This is to focus on the root problem and be effective, or you can bring in carry water around the hotel, and the water is dirty because of the extremely ineffective work methods.
The job of management is not to manage people, it is to remove the obstacle of production. To Ease on down the road, not to push on down the road.
