Use Gilbert’s First Leisurely Theorem.
1. Describe an activity in your work, in terms of worthy performance. What do you accomplish, in terms of measurable, valuable results? What is the cost of the behavior you put into this activity (the amount of pay you receive, as you carry out the behaviors needed to accomplish the results, as well as other costs)?
2. Describe another activity in your work, in the same terms. This time, find an activity that may have more or less worthan activity that costs more to produce results or an activity that produces less valuable results than the first activity.
Compare these two activities.
What did you learn by calculating the worth of these two activities? How can these lessons and ideas be applied to whole organizations?
