Do you want to be productive?
What a question. Who doesn’t?
But, how do we define a Productive Day?
In my view, a productive day means proactively working on the highest order priorities.
The next question is How?
Let me share with you 3 secrets to have a productive day :
1.Identify what not to do.
#Recognize what are you doing.
#Assess, whether it is the best utilization of available time.
#If the answer is NO, then stop doing it.
2.Visualize the consequences
#Your actions can either take you forward or backward.
#Consider the long-term impact of indulging in non-productive activity.
#Evaluate the opportunity cost of engaging in this activity.
3.Eliminate the Distractions
#Isolate yourself from activities that are disturbing you.
#Remind yourself, what needs your attention.
#Recall the outcomes you want to achieve.
Focusing on the wrong things in the right way is almost as bad as not focusing on the right things.
“If you don’t organize the day with high-priority ASKS, you will spend the time on low-priority TASKS.”
