It’s a natural goal to want to maximize resources. But sometimes pursuing “more” causes businesses and leaders to push ahead in the wrong places in the wrong ways. As much as we’d like to think people can continue to increase hours and maintain quality of output, it simply doesn’t work. As long as humans remain human there will be a point of diminishing returns.
However, one of the things that makes humans unique is their ability to create processes, systems, and machines that help boost productivity. Perhaps we should make this ability a greater focal point in everyday life? Perhaps instead of pushing for more and better people, we should inspire people to create more and better ideas that lead to more and better solutions, processes, systems, machines, products, and services. Perhaps your next best investment is creating an environment that encourages ideation and a culture that helps those ideas multiply.
