Are You Impeccable?

Impeccable People

Chickens peck a lot, but they’re not exactly impeccable. The word “impeccable” describes something or someone without any flaws who has extremely high standards especially for themselves. Some times these people don’t have many friends because to a perfectionist others seems crude, flawed, and disorganized.

Being Impeccable can also be a Benefit.

Certainly is a lot easier to get things done when you know where your tools are and you can find them. When paperwork is in the right files, this speeds production. When every thing is flowing, working great, one can be on top of the world. But what do you do when it’s not going exactly right?

OKR

OKR or Objectives and Key Results is a framework for defining and tracking objectives and their outcomes. The development of OKRs is generally attributed to Andy Grove the “Father of OKRs”, who introduced the approach to Intel during his tenure there and documented this in his 1983 book High Output Management.

OKR can keep you on the right track

It defines what you seek to achieve. Results come from how these top priority goals will be obtained with specific measurable actions within a set time frame. What’s important is to keep the “main thing” the main thing.

Ask these questions:
  1. What’s the point?
  2. What’s the goal?
  3. What’s the future look like?
  4. Who do you and your associates want to become?

In his new book, Measure What Matters, Grove stresses you must “. . . crystallize your objective. Break that down into key results. . . . take your goals, your objectives, and break them down into measurable metrics when achieved add up to that objective.”

Exercise:

Sit down with pen and paper or use the keyboard, right now, and write down “How do I generate what I want or need?” Then ask yourself,¬† “What measure will I use to know I’ve achieve it.” Finally, “How do I understand what’s going on with me, my situation, my life?

Grove points out his strategy: “Don’t focus on or study the faults, the poverty, focus on how do you generate what you want.”
