Top 7 Friction Factors

Being efficient and effective is what many of us strive for. But we have all learned that is hard to constantly maintain a high level of efficiency and effectiveness. So many things happen or cause us to veer off our path.

The obvious solution then to increase efficiency is to find ways of reducing the friction. That’s of course easier said that done, but it’s a great place to start by looking at the friction factors that consume your resources:

  1. Interruptions
  2. Distractions
  3. Mistakes
  4. Fatigue, both mental and physical
  5. Lack of knowledge, tools or resources
  6. Lack of education, experience or expertise
  7. Competition

Resolve these and your productivity will sky rocket!
