I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “focus on results, not effort.” This is a good way of looking at any task. If we focus on getting the quickest wins in the fastest way then optimize later with regards to software development, we will be able to get more done and see faster growth for our companies.

Your time is valuable — do what matters most! They might ask you what programming language or framework you used in a management meeting, but they won’t be interested enough to find out. The only questions that matter is:

Are we making progress? Is there any obstacle this could prevent us from succeeding ?” It’s essential to focus on results, not effort.

One way to achieve this is by breaking down our goals into smaller tasks that we can complete quickly and move on from. This will help us stay focused and avoid distractions.

Another way to ensure that we’re focusing on the right things is by using a Kanban board. On this board, we can track the progress of our tasks and see which ones are taking longer than expected. This will help us optimize our workflow and get more done in less time.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to focus on getting results instead of spending all your time trying to put in the extra effort. And at the end of the day, isn’t what matters?

Conclusion

We all want to do our best, but it’s vital not to fall into the trap of over-achieving. Instead, take advantage of the time you save by using an easy method and then move on to more complex tasks or projects rather than concentrating on effort and making changes that aren’t required.

It is better for your productivity than getting bogged down with challenging projects when there are easier ways around them! What methods have you applied so far?
