I want to share with you three reasons that I am an ultra-productive person. Productivity is definitely a mindset and a way that I was just inherently hard-wired for, but it is something you can learn.
#1 Productive People Don’t Waste Any Time
You might be thinking, “Well, duh. I don’t waste time either.” But it’s more than just not wasting time. I see time as my friend and I am in complete control of my time.
Here is a short video on how to get control of your time:
This mindset shift alone will take a while for you to cultivate, especially if you’re thinking it can’t work for your circumstances. It is a mindset.
Along with not wasting time, I reorganize my time – all the time. I see my day as blocks of time, but because I’m in control of all of my time, I move things around.
#2 Productive People Are Results Oriented
I didn’t realize until recently how I do a to-do list and how an unproductive person does a to-do list. If you watched both of us doing our to-do lists, we would both look equally busy and look like we were getting the same amount done. But at the end of the day, my to-do list is done and you feel like you never got started on your to-do list.
Here’s the difference. I measure my success each day in finished products, not actionable work. Busyness gets me nowhere.
Productive people are not busy, they are producing. That is the big distinguisher. You have to stop some of your busyness in order to get an end result, which means you have to know where you’re going.
When you look at the whole day at the end of the day, what did you actually get finished? What did you get done? What have you produced?
Productive people are measuring what we are finishing and producing, not how we are spending our time.
#3 Productive People Follow Tried And True Action Plans
The biggest secret about productivity is that it is all about experimenting and creating habits. That is what productive people do. They try, they analyze, they look at their results and then they tweak and tweak.
Productive people follow tried and true action plans. Whenever I have something new in business that I have never done before, I try to find somebody who has done that and I ask them what people they use, what system do they use, what is their process? I may tweak that for my own business, or I may tweak that for my own productivity or where it fits best in my schedule, but I don’t start everything from scratch.
The 100 Day Home Organization Program
The 100 Day Home Organization Program was developed by a professional organizer (me!) who took all of the spaces in your house, divided them into an organized chart, and then created the order in which you organize them according to the areas where you spend the most time and the areas of the house you have the most control.
The 100 Day Home Organization Program WORKS!
If you are looking to PRODUCE an ORGANIZED home, follow this system. 😉
Being A Productive Person
The things that I do that make me a very productive person are I don’t waste any time and I feel that my time is in my control. I am results oriented, not busyness focused, and I follow tried and true action plans to get the results I want.
If you are looking for a way to end up feeling 100 days from now that your house is more organized, I really do think that the 100 Day Home Organization Program is the solution for you. We are going to get started again on April 16th. Registration closes on April 3rd and we would love to have you join us.
And there’s still time to join me in Dallas, Texas for the Organize 365 National Convention on June 7-9, 2018! I can’t wait to meet you and give you a BIG hug!
