To optimize your effectiveness and efficiency is crucial for your result

In today’s fast-moving Internet environment it’s more important than ever to know how to maximize your effectiveness and efficiency.

When surfing around on the Internet, there are tons of articles about efficiency, like this one that I love. However, it’s not so easy to find articles dealing with effectiveness and efficiency as an integrated process for best results.

To be able to optimize your effectiveness and efficiency, you must first get it clear what’s the difference between the two. In one of my previous articles, we went through the gap between effectiveness and efficiency.

In a nutshell:

Effectiveness: doing the right things

Efficiency: doing things right

Let’s say that Eliud Kipchoge, the fastest marathon runner in the world, comes to the Olympic Games, and lining up for the 100-meter flat race. Do you think he will qualify for the next race? Probably not? He may be the fastest marathon runner in the world, but has nothing to do in a 100-meter race on an elite level. He is not doing the right thing.

How often does it happen to you that you are working around the clock, but you don’t get the results you’re expecting. Take a look and figure out if you’re doing the right thing.

To optimize your effectiveness and efficiency, you need to understand the effectiveness before putting in much efficiency. As always my favorite, James Clear has an interesting approach to the topic of effectiveness and efficiency.

Effectiveness and Efficiency are the Same but Different

Effectiveness and efficiency - the same but differentAfter a hard days work with the feeling that not much has been achieved, it can be due to lack of both effectiveness and efficiency or only one of the two.

If both effectiveness and efficiency are essential, what then comes first?

The classical anecdote about if the chicken or the egg comes first, deal with more or less the same dilemma as effectiveness and efficiency.

Thus, effectiveness is very much connected to the goal of your mission. If you have your mission well defined, it shouldn’t cause you any problem to check whenever you want, if you’re on the right track or not.

Check this short video about the most common traps for low efficiency and how to deal with them.

As mentioned in the video seven working blocks of 25 minutes each and 20 minutes of rest in between, will give you a total working day of 5 hours. According to some sources, the productive working time is the same for the average worker at work 8 hours a day.

So, the question is simple: would you like to work for 5 or 8 hours per day?

To make business online there are also effective paths where to opt in. Imagine having everything set up in an optimized automation mood. You sell a product without even touch the selling process. It’s the ultimate affiliate marketing business.
