Beginning Balance

Jun 3, 2022

Can you imagine it? Mark and Jesse discuss Cal Newport's book A World Without Email, which urges workers, especially knowledge workers, to rethink their work in terms of process and systems. Good processes make us more efficient, but more importantly they allow us to engage in deeper work and be more creative as a result.


Good processes and systems don't just happen, however. Typically they are emergent, and it is so easy to fall into a mindset of "it's working, and I always do it this way, so let's keep doing that." If you can develop a mindset that process improvement actually results in better and more impactful work, however, then you can start to see all the processes in your business as opportunities for growth.
