On September 21 we looked at rebalancing the M=V/E equation. A reader responded:
“Yes, that's exactly what I am experiencing as [leader]! I don't think I have a problem seeing the value, but my experience of the effort is too great to have a M greater than 1.”
So, we have an essential leadership task. We recognize the V (value), but the E (effort) is so high that our M (motivation) is low.
I am having a similar challenge. To help more people, I must grow this email community. To do that, I must increase my social media presence (smp). The V is huge, but the E is also huge. I can’t make V any bigger than it already is, so how do I decrease E?
Do you have an essential task with both a high V and a high E? Can you use either of these strategies?
If so, please consider sharing an example. If not, read tomorrow for two more strategies.
