When you need something done, you need it done on your schedule. You want whoever is working on your project to treat it seriously. It’s important to you. You wouldn’t be doing your project if it wasn’t important. There is a desire or even a need for anyone contributing to your project to take it seriously enough to work hard and respect the deadline.
You’re looking for a sense of urgency.
Urgent or Fast?
The phrase “sense of urgency” is bandied about frequently in our busy world. Many people use it interchangeably with “as fast as possible.” But “fast” is not equal to “urgent.” After all, there are three ways to do things: the right way, the wrong way, and the Max Power way. It’s the wrong way, but much faster.
When you want a sense of urgency, you don’t want things to be done fast just for the sake of doing them fast. A sense of urgency is greater than that. A sense of urgency means doing things with the seriousness and respect they deserve in a timely fashion. It does not mean getting things done as fast as possible by any means necessary. There is an old adage that anyone who does not have the time to do something right the first time certainly doesn’t have the time to do it over. A sense of urgency does not mean cutting corners.
A sense of urgency does mean having an understanding of the situation and what is required to solve the problems presented. It also means people who are actively engaged in solving the problems and completing the tasks.
The operative word in “sense of urgency” is “sense.” It is something that we don’t just take in intellectually, but we internalize the need for urgency. We feel it. Humans are emotional beings that function on emotions, both positively and negatively. When we have a sense of urgency about something, there is an emotional connection that drives us to accomplish the task.
