I have always wanted to do things in the most efficient way and many times I refused to do them unless I found first the most efficient way to do them, because of course, I don’t want to waste my time because you know, YOLO.
But the problem with that is that efficiency can many times be an excuse. A way to hide and procrastinate. Away to leave work undone. A way to give yourself a proper ‘’reason’’ why you aren’t doing what you want to do, why you aren’t doing what you are supposed to do.
I am not saying that efficiency is bad. It’s only that we should think about whether this efficiency is actually something we need, or if it is only a way to turn away from what you have to do. Resistance is strong, and any excuse can weaken you, especially if it implies ‘’work’’.
There is nothing worse than being efficient at a task you don’t even have to do. Try to be effective instead of efficient because many times efficiency is just a trap.
