How terrible is it for people with wrong ideas to work?

Do it if you are clear

I often hear words like this at work:

“You don’t have the right idea to do this!”

This reveals a very simple issue that few people pay attention to:

The importance of working ideas.

If doing a job is like driving from point A to point B, then the idea of ​​work is your navigation.

Different working ideas correspond to different advantages and disadvantages. You can choose the route with the shortest distance, the route with the least red light, or the route with the least traffic jam.

Professionals in the workplace often have more than one working idea, but choose the most suitable one for the current problems and situations .

For example, the lowest cost method, the fastest time method, the most comprehensive method, the least internal communication method, the least resource use method, and so on.

But there is probably only one route for newcomers in the workplace. Some even start to “drive” without a complete route plan.

This often leads to a problem, half of the work is done, and it is found that it can’t go on. Everywhere is a dead end. But due to the fact that so many things have been done before, all of them are overthrown and reluctant.

So what should I do?

work overtime.

This kind of overtime is not to do a good job, but to have trouble with myself, to prove that even if the initial route planning is wrong, I can reach the end by detours.

Actually it is not necessary.

If you set your thinking at the beginning, you can greatly save energy and complete tasks easily and efficiently.

How terrible is it for people with wrong ideas to work?

At this time, some people may ask, not all jobs can be clearly thought out at the beginning, more often they are thinking while doing.

That’s right, but thinking while doing it doesn’t mean that the idea is not clear.

We all know that there is a concept of “agile development” in Internet products.

What is agile development?

First make a prototype of the smallest scale product, then put it into the market, and continuously adjust and optimize the product based on user feedback.

Many of the apps we use now were completely different from what they are now when they were first made. They are all iterated step by step into what they are today.

The same is true for work. If every item of our daily work is regarded as a small “product”, is the product made today the same as yesterday? Is the product made tomorrow repeating today’s practice?

It is worth thinking about.

The thought must be in sync with the action, but the thought must always be a small step ahead of the action.

If you are doing repetitive things, such as collecting data and making Excel spreadsheets, you have to make 10 identical spreadsheets a day.

Then each form is a task unit. When you finish the first task unit, stop and think, are there any steps that can be optimized in the process just now? Did you forget to use any shortcut keys? Would it be more convenient to do the third step first and then the first step?

Believe me, you will be able to find out where you can optimize. Think clearly before doing the next task unit, you will find that this time it will take 10 minutes less.

You see, every time you finish a task unit, it is an iteration of yours.

If you are doing promotion work, such as project brainstorming, mobilize everyone to discuss ideas together .

Then you can think about how to inspire everyone. For example, in advance to collect some others did PORTFOLIO, or your own to give some preliminary thinking framework, and then brainstorming Guangyi filling contents into this framework?

This is more efficient than gathering people together without preparing for anything.

Remember, thinking, always a small step ahead of the action.

How terrible is it for people with wrong ideas to work?

Good ideas do not appear out of thin air, they are all summed up, refined and optimized from experience.

That as how the training of thinking? Finally, share a few suggestions:

First of all, collect and organize all the work you have done in the past, and classify them.

Few people have this habit, but this is the simplest and most effective way to train.

No matter what industry or company you are in, no matter what job you are engaged in, as long as you sum it up carefully, you will surely find that your daily work cannot escape those fixed types.

For example, if you are a product manufacturer, which modules are often involved in your daily work? Which skills do they correspond to? Which departments should you communicate and collaborate with, and what methods and particularities are there?

You are doing business analysis, so what are the workflows in business analysis? At each step, how did the predecessor’s method do it? When encountering a specific problem, what experience and solutions can I refer to?

These summaries will help you form the prototype of your work ideas.

I used to have a way of creating folders on my computer.

The name of each folder corresponds to a problem at work. And what is placed in the folder are all the files, PPT, flowcharts, and tables related to this problem.

For example, in the folder named “Data Collection”, I list all the information channels I can find for collecting data.

In the folder named “Creative Tools”, I added all the mind maps and copywriting methods that can inspire creativity.

The folder named “Meeting Communication” contains various meeting minutes and email writing templates. Even what emails should be sent directly to the boss, and what emails should be copied to colleagues in the department. I also wrote these tips as documents and stuffed them inside.

After working for 3 years, I built a total of 20 folders. These 20 folders correspond to the 20 most important questions in my work.

Later, I resigned and deleted all these 20 folders. Because I’m so cooked, I don’t need to click one by one to see it, and I know what to do.

In other words, they are already engraved in my DNA.

This is the meaning of induction.

This method is good, but there is a flaw, that is, these ideas summarized correspond to past problems.

They can solve known old problems, but they can’t guide you to the new world .

what to do? We need innovation.

But this innovation does not mean drastically changing the old thinking, but to do micro-innovation on the basis of the old thinking.

For example, on the basis of the existing product design, by adding and subtracting some steps and functions, and merging some processes to achieve a more optimized user experience, this is a kind of micro-innovation.

For another example, in the classic thinking model, deleting some irrelevant conditions and changing some specific words to make it more in line with the current environment is also a kind of micro-innovation.

Like the most classic 4P model in marketing, products (product), price (price), channel (place), and promotion (promotion) are used to construct a basic marketing framework theory.

In this era when the thinking model was born, there was no Internet, no e-commerce, and the media environment was very simple. It might be a bit outdated for the present, but that doesn’t mean it is completely useless.

On the contrary, we can add or optimize several elements on the basis of 4P.

For example, we can promotion and drainage channel together and to a terminal (End). Because today’s e-commerce platform has taken the mainstream, it is both a sales channel and an advertising channel. And all media content channels must be used for sales terminals.

We can also add this element of CRM (Customer Relationship Management). Because the 4P model in the past described a one- shot deal, consumers left after buying.

However, with the rise of mobile technology and big data, more and more attention is paid to the behavior of users after purchasing products. Promote user repurchase and even cultivate long-term customers, which can bring more value to the enterprise.

You see, we don’t have to completely subvert the past experience, we can still allow ourselves to stay in the frame and think.

It’s just that the shape and size of this frame can be changed. You can step on a foot or stretch out a hand, but you don’t have to move the whole body out.

People can discover the connections between things only in the field they are familiar with. On the basis of existing experience, first try to change a little bit and find that it is effective, and then turn small changes into big innovations.

At this point, you have actually mastered most of the ideas in work. Whether it is encountering an old problem or a new challenge, you will not feel overwhelmed.

At this time, it must evolve to the third level, to break up and reorganize.

Break up all the rules and regulations of the past, extract the core essence of the thinking, and recombine it into a more refined and powerful method.

For example, a 100-page project PPT, in fact, its ideas can be written in one page PPT, this is called a writing outline;

For another example, an action plan, its ideas can be written with a piece of paper and a pen, and the rest is nothing more than refinement and extension on the basis of the framework.

But in any case, the most essential things in work are nothing more than the following 6:

Background, goals, difficulties, methods, conditions, time.

The background is the ins and outs of this matter and the current situation;

Goals are what you want to achieve the most, preferably no more than 3;

Difficulty is the most intuitive obstruction in the process of achieving your goals;

The method is a series of ideas, methods and steps on how to overcome difficulties;

Conditions are the various resources and support you need to implement the method;

Time is the estimated time for you to complete the work from beginning to end.

Remember these 6 key words. All the work problems you encounter are based on these 6 keywords with layer after layer.

What you have to do is take off all these coats, and finally simplify the complexity.

For another example, there are three ways to communicate in the workplace.

The first is called timeline communication, past-present-future.

What was this thing like before, where has it been developed now, and in which direction will it continue to develop in the future?

This kind of communication idea is suitable for meeting occasions such as new project docking, background introduction, company introduction and so on.

The second type is called solution communication, problem-method-benefit.

What trouble do we have now, what methods can be used to solve this trouble, and what benefits each method can bring.

This kind of communication thinking is suitable for making project reports, making suggestions to customers and bosses, and various business negotiation occasions.

The third type is called emergency communication, what-now what-so what.

What is this, what has become of it now, and what actions should we take next.

This kind of communication approach is suitable for all kinds of emergencies, or when you encounter unexpected things, you need to immediately come up with countermeasures.

Familiar with these three kinds of thinking, can basically deal with 99% of workplace communication occasions. This is also simplifying the complexity.

There must be ideas for everything, and a plan for any work. This is a mature professional.

The above is today’s content. I hope that after reading it, everyone will realize the importance of working ideas, and then think clearly before doing it.

Mutual encouragement =)
