The Idea of Quality vs. Quantity

The Idea of Quality vs. Quantity

The Powerful Paragraph

I recently worked with a client who mentioned they struggle with the idea of quality vs. quantity. In this client’s world, it was the amount of time spent on their goals that mattered most. That’s even if they were able to produce quality output in a shorter period of time, they were still frustrated with the lack of time they spent working on their goals. This issue is rampant in the corporate world, which tends to put heavy demands on the amount of time people put into a work week over the work they produce. But when we looked deeper into the aspects of their output they were most proud of, they found that it didn’t always come on the days they worked on their goals the longest. In fact, their quality work was split pretty evenly between the days they worked for hours and the days they worked for one hour. With this realization, this client was able to feel more confident and grateful toward themselves and the work they produced.

In coaching and other helping professions, self-awareness means knowing how our actions, thoughts, and emotions align with our values. Rather than something that indicates a sense of being hyper-aware or insecure, self-awareness empowers someone to make objective assessments of themselves and make choices to adjust in a way that matches with their internal standards.

We often forget the impact that external events can have on our mental health. Depressing news stories and second-hand bad news can take more of a toll on our stress levels than we might initially think.
