It’s a catchy phrase. It feels meaningful, efficient, and has a sense of urgency. What is your workflow and is it both effective and efficient?
Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of digital work with camera’s and recordings. While it is not my core competence, I’ve been working with pro/prosumer camera’s and voice recorders consistently across the last decade or so.
Today, with broadcasting and streaming being a requirement for education, training, and speaking I find myself consumed with technology. It’s welcomed and interesting and all the while I’m being challenged to learn more.
Professional photographers, cinematographers, and voice and sound experts commonly use the term workflow.
Workflow represents many things, but for most of them, this has to do with the skill and art of creating digital video and audio, moving it to post-production, and alas creating a video component suitable for public viewing. It’s workflow.
What does your workflow look like?
Have you thought about how your days start, how they progress, and how you finish them up?
People will often suggest that your day starts with attitude and a plan. Are you good on both?
What things derail your performance?
Is it traffic, people, or the lack of a caffeinated beverage? Are you properly hydrated, fueled, and well-rested?
Staying focused, persistent, and energized can be a challenge. Slow starts and hard stops are often problematic.
Are you getting it right?
Everyone has their own version of workflow. It may be different for the construction worker, to the graphic designer, or from the baker, to the convenience store manager.
One constant remains though, they all move from point A to to point B.
Only some flow.
