This week Chris unveils to the world his new concept “Under Optimizing”. For all the high performance tweakers, tinkerers, 110%ers, listen carefully – this could save you from pushing too far in the wrong direction, doom, destruction and neglected pets.
“don’t be fooled it’s not the optimization that counts”
The basic premise of Under Optimization
If you are already doing the right thing, then you don’t need to go at it 110% or even 100% – it’ll continue to grow naturally at a much lower level of effort, because you are doing the right thing.
If you are doing the wrong thing, or not quite the right thing, then optimizations can appear to help. This is a dangerous trap. You may find yourself trapped in a situation throwing 110% at something that is just about working. However you have no spare time or energy to make changes, observe yourself, keep things in check etc. This applies across the board, health, business, productivity etc.
