In the Globe and Mail today, there was an interesting article written by a fellow blogger (well, he's a bit more famous and well established than I) about how to be INeffective. This is in contrast to Stephen Covey's popular book "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" and it outlines that the follow will lead to a completely ineffective day at the office:
1. Not showing up.
2. Procrastinating half the day.
3. Focusing on the unimportant.
4. Thinking too much.
5. Always seeing the downside.
6. Constantly being on information overload.
