Miller’s Monday Morning Message
presented by ACM Consulting Inc.
Andrew Miller on operational excellence, strategy, life balance and everything in between
Toronto – February 17, 2014
Every two years in the weeks before the Olympic games begin, we focus on all of the problems that will arise. For the Sochi games we worried about hotel rooms not being finished, security at the games, water that wasn’t drinkable, professional athletes having to share college dorm-style rooms, Canadian hockey goalies, and many other petty things. One week into the games, none of these concerns are relevant anymore. We even joke about them. That’s because they really weren’t issues to begin with. They were items that distracted us from the real story of the Olympics, which is the athletes, the competitions, and the camaraderie. As soon as the games began, all of this talk went away because we focused on what the Olympics is truly all about.
What distractions are taking away your ability to focus on the real issues and opportunities in your organization?
