Summary: The author asserts there are two kinds of results leaders achieve, standard results and deep results. All leaders know what standard results are, but few leaders know what deep results are. In long run, standard results, though necessary, are far less important than deep results.
Leadership For Deep Results: Without Them Are You Wasting Your Leadership And Your Life? (Part One) by Brent Filson
I've challenged all leaders I have worked with during past two decades to achieve "more results faster continually."
They can get on track to start achieving such results not by working harder and longer but by slowing down and using Leadership Talks on a daily basis.
However, I also tell them that getting on more-results-faster-continually track is not an end but a beginning. They must then begin focusing not just on quantity and speed of results but kind of results they aim to achieve.
There are roughly two kinds of results, standard results and deep results. Most leaders understand standard results but fail to come to grips with deep results. In fact, these leaders go through their entire careers getting former, but they don't have a clue about latter. Of course, standard results are necessary. But in long run, they are far less important than deep results.
We know what standard results are. They are results we must get in our jobs, such as: speed, productivity, operations efficiencies, sales closes, sales leads, sales to new customers, failure prevention, health and safety advancements, quality, training, quality control, logistics efficiencies, marketing targets, new revenue streams, sales erosion, price calibrations, cost reductions, demand flow activities and technologies, inventory turns, cycle time reductions, materials and parts management, etc.
