Get the Powers to Act from Fresh Ideas

Do Little, Not Much

While reading Game Changer, Doing What Matters, Execution, Boards That Deliver, Business Richard Branson Way, Who Says Elephants Can't Dance? etc, I noticed certain small numbers:

1-2 critical choices,
1-2 strategic priorities,
3-4 goals, few enough to do trade-offs effectively in a decentralized decision-making environment,
3-4 skills required in a job applicant,
5-6 critical success factors for a workforce to be preoccupied with day to day,
5 priorities for the board,
5 core strengths for an enterprise, etc

With examples from P&G, IBM, Honeywell, Virgin, GE etc.

I suggest you aim to get just 3 or 4 things done every day.

TimFerriss suggests just 1 or 2 outputs everyday.
