This Focused Performance Weblog started life as a "business management blog" containing links and commentary related primarily to organizational effectiveness with a "Theory of Constraints" perspective, but is in the process of evolving towards primary content on interactive and mobile marketing. Think of it as about Focusing marketing messages for enhanced Performance. If you are on an archive page, current postings are found here.
A clearly stated and consistent vision and goal, such as this from [FDR] 60 years ago, is critical to the management, support, and success of any effort, whether in our personal lives, our companies, or this larger context. It may never be reached in absolute, but is worthy of focused striving. The terror that is the current constraint inhibiting this goal is a self-supporting symptom of the difficulty associated with attaining this goal in the complexities of a modern multi-cultural world. In dealing with the immediate symptom, we must do so keeping in mind the larger, long-term goal of universal freedom.
And as has been demonstrated in the two years since, this universal goal can best be achieved if we can learn to work together with others and avoid over-obsessing on our own short-term, local objectives of power and politics.
