☆  ineffective  効果的でない


As you may know, Stephen Covey wrote a book called the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Well, this is the exact opposite of that idea, not effective, but ineffective. And the funny thing is that you can find various different versions of this 7 Habits idea, based on “Ineffective People”!

Each of the 7 Habits of Ineffective people lists that I found was a little bit different, but one habit really struck me. It was the habit of finishing everything on your To Do list each day. This is an ineffective habit the article said. I was surprised at first. However, the writer’s reasoning was that if you complete everything on your To Do list, you are probably not prioritizing very well, and therefore spending time on tasks that really aren’t important. That makes sense. Do you agree?
