If not “more” then what?
The relentless and arbitrary pursuit of more is something I’ve seen destroy people, families, and teams. I’m not a scholar of history, but I think “more” can destroy companies and nations too.
But if not more - which I think of as output per unit cost - then what do we measure results by?
I try to pay attention to results, without becoming attached to them. And, I’m generally wary of a results focus (that’s the student of eastern philosophy in me). But even if we don’t fully reject a results focus, our objective doesn’t have to only be “more”.
