Struck by a comment I made regarding work/process versus results

Always, always, always I worked hard, but I was focused on long-term results and actual quality revenue generation.  The short term, and the volume/quantity and hours worked were irrelevant to me as long as I was getting the results I needed.  But the past few years and companies I’ve worked for were soooooo short-term results driven (often at the expense of the long term) and metrics driven, I found myself making a comment today about making sure I put in some hours (versus worrying about results).  Yikes!!! I need to change my mindset back to the long-term results, and exorcise the bad habits of recent dysfunctional companies.  

In sales, metrics are a very loose guideline, but are not and never should be the end-all.  It is money — not metrics — that pays the bills for my employer and for me.
