Lean management

19 Jun

Many people want to achieve much through little effort and there is nothing wrong with it. Because time is valuable and you have to use the time efficiently. Through small changes in the everyday life, we get much more than by radical changes. For example: people who have no time to exercise, but really want it can make use of interval training.

“High-intensity interval training is twice as effective as normal exercise,” said Jan Helgerud. It also saves a lot of time because it is much shorter than the normal training.

This week I want to consider a new topic: how do I become a good manager? I believe that every person is a manager.

How about some CHANGE?

How do I motivate myself? Under what conditions am I willing to work hard? Is it just for a good grade or for myself? Do I work hard to impress the professor? Or am I concerned about what my future job will be? Do I want to earn a lot of money? What makes me move personally? And what’s about change? Am I able to adapt to personal changes as well as changes concerning my business environment?

It’s not always easy to deal with changing condition; be it a new professor that demands a lot from you or a new living situation. Life always changes, and we frequently need to adapt to it. Finding our personal motivation to deal with changes can be applied to our professional motivation as well.

So let’s transfer the personal adaptation troubles to a higher level:
