Doing the right things vs. doing things right

It’s interesting to think about the relative benefits of doing the right things vs. doing things right. For example, doing things right, might included sticking to deadlines, budget etc. Doing the right things includes deciding what projects to undertake, or deciding what to do at the individual level should I run 3 miles or update my blog? I think it’s clear that selecting the right things to do is far more impactful.

However, in practise, it’s very easy to rush into the implementation without first thinking about if we are truely working on the right things.
