my motto has been "get sh*t done" for the past few months, but now I think I'll switch it up a bit to "make sh*t happen!!"

I have read this page already as I had downloaded this great eBook from Seth Godin last week, but I was just not able to make out the sole point which you have said quite well here, its about making things happen, not getting things done.
Connections have really changed the way we do things a lot because now we interact with many people of same our different mindsets, we are influenced by some of them to do something new in a given time or we influence others by taking our time.

When does demanding excellence turn into burnout or being obsessed? Its the balance between "good enough" and "excellence" that is so important and difficult to achieve. No one can excel at everything in their life, so by default something has to be just good enough. Which things are important enough to push oneself is what makes us individuals or what creates differences between organizations.

Roger Carr

I do have a to do list (I first address my top 3 items each day). But the items are based on being effective, not efficient. I don't see a difference between checking off the to do list and making things happen, if the to do list was created from the proper perspective. Certainly, connectedness allows me to be more effective at times.

keep you eye on the ball and the goal post at the same time and find that happy medium where both elements are taken into consideration.
