Many of you will this line without seeing the mistake. Why?
There’s a word missing, but you probably didn’t notice because you were skimming. Not paying full attention is common in our information-heavy world. How many of us read just the subject line of an email or skip through a report to the recommendations?
Technology has transformed the workplace. We use it to develop smarter strategies, improve our customer service, and communicate instantly. However, there’s a downside to it, too. If you’re a typical executive, the sheer volume of information you deal with every day makes it hard to focus on what’s important. There are too many distractions, there’s too little time to prioritise, and there’s too much fear of missing that vital piece of information.
At the same time, we are living in a global marketplace that is connected 24/7. The line between work hours and personal time has blurred; bosses, colleagues, and customers expect you to be available at any hour, no matter where you are.
