The Four Work Principles
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” -Ephesians 2:10
When presented with any work, task or process, your first thought or action shouldn’t be simply to do it. Instead, you should mentally walk through this hierarchy, in descending order of importance:
Eliminate:this means simply stop doing it. Typically requires a fundamental change
Automate: You aren’t on The Otaku Box team to do tasks that can (and therefore should) be automated. You’re an expert in your field, which means you should also know what parts can be automated (and by what tools) and what parts can’t. You also must remain up-to-date on the current events, processes, systems, and advancements in your field so that you can implement any automation that becomes available
Outsource/assign to gig workers: whether you choose to outsource an aspect of work
Do: if the work you’re about to do has withstood the test of the following above three principles, then you can do it. However, not following or improper implementation of the above principles will result in a workload that steadily increases over time as the company grows, until you’re unable to complete all of your required work in a 40-hour week. Since working more than 40 hours in a week is a policy violation, you must effectively use the first three principles to ensure your workload doesn’t surpass your time constraints.
