Being Effective vs Being Efficient

The Gist

  • Effectiveness and Efficiency are two different things
  • Efficiency is to accomplish a task with minimal use of energy
  • Effectively is to accomplish the right task

Why is this important

It is better to accomplish the right task slowly, than to accomplish the wrong task quickly.

‘Truly fast, repeatable actions must be smooth, but you cannot perform a smooth action fast if you cannot first perform a slow action smoothly.’

Peter Stecher
