Always Focus On A Result
I think there's a difference between being results-oriented and result-oriented. Being results-oriented informs why one chooses to put effort toward a task - to generate results. Being result-oriented discusses how one chooses to put effort toward a task - by focusing on something specific, that makes a difference.
I often feel like I'm going through the day simply to cross items off of my to-do list. Instead, I'd like to focus all my effort so that it contributes to a specific, impactful, result - big or small. My goal is to ask myself the first of Bob Quinn's fundamental four questions (found in the book Lift), "What result am I trying to create?" whenever I begin work on a new task.
