Maybe You Don’t Need To Keep Every Plate Spinning

If you don’t have some sort of stated Goals – you cannot sort the meaningful from the meaningless Activities.


You cannot focus and conquer. You will not move ahead.

Rough Out a Plan for 2020

Start with your wish list of what you’d like to achieve – short term and/or long term.

Map out out a plan of Activities and then a reasonable calendar. Eliminate the meaningless Activities on your calendar that don’t lead you to your Goals.

My HPT Video Series

The HPT Practitioner and HPT Legacy Video Series was started by Guy W. Wallace in 2008 as a means of sharing the diversity of HPT Practitioners, and the diversity of HPT Practices in the workplace and in academia. The full set of videos may be found and linked to – here.

HPT – Human Performance Technology – is the application of science – the “technology” part – for Performance Improvement. As the late Don Tosti noted, “All performance is a human endeavor.”

Whether your label for HPT is that, or Performance Improvement or Human Performance Improvement, it is all about Evidence Based Practices for Performance Improvement at the Individual level, the Team level, the Process level, the Department level, the Functional level, the Enterprise level, and at the level of Society/World.

HPT Practitioners operate at all of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.

Although ISPI – the International Society for Performance Improvement is the professional home of many HPT Practitioners – the concepts, models, methods, tools and techniques are not limited to any one professional affinity group or professional label.

ISPI just happens to be where I learned about HPT – and has been my professional home since 1979.
