You do not understand or can’t describe the “why” of what you do,
You don’t know the impact that what you do should make,
You cannot succinctly describe how you do it,
You can’t make what you do repeatable, and
You don’t measure what you do,
Congratulations! You're chasing your tail. You are on a circular treadmill going nowhere.
Never do anything unless you understand WHY. Actually, ask it five times to make sure you really know the WHY.
Know what your work should achieve. What impact will I have.
Make your work repeatable and describable.
Measure it. Learn and Improve. Get creative. Repeat.
Lookup. Go in straight lines. Enjoy.
