2 simple ways to boost your productivity

Do you ever wish you could clone yourself so you could get your work done faster? You may wonder how it is that other people appear to get so much accomplished while you are left with only one thing crossed off your TO DO list at the end of the day.

While cloning yourself does sound enticing, it’s likely not the solution you need.

Instead, let’s boost how you work, to ensure you are using your productive energy to the maximum.

In this video, I share two performance-enhancing techniques that are so easy, you can start using them today. I use these myself, as do my clients, and they have caused our productivity levels to skyrocket. That’s what I want for you.

Prioritize your TO DOs easily and efficiently

Do you struggle with making a decision on what to work on first in your day? Maybe you know what to work on, but it keeps slipping away because your inbox is full of emails from people who all want a piece of your precious attention.

Before you know it, you’ve just spent the first hour of your day working on someone else’s priority.

Let’s change that for you.

Let’s make sure you are focused on achieving your important work … not someone else’s. Let’s protect you from those pesky distractions that come in and hijack your day.

In this video I’ll share with you my system, that I use myself and with my clients, to make prioritizing your tasks easy, so you get the right things done.

In today’s video, I’ll show you the foundational first step of Focus First™ that you can take right now to give your productivity the boost it needs. Imagine starting 2018 with a fresh list of goals you know you will accomplish.

If you feel frazzled at the end of the day, or if you’re tired of having your priorities slip to the bottom of the list, then this video is for you.

In this video, I’ll share with you the real culprit that is putting a damper on your productivity.

Once you’ve reframed the challenge, you’ll be able to address it and your efficiency will SOAR.

In this video, I’ll show you 3 simple ways you can start managing your email so you can take back control of your inbox, your time and most importantly your focus.
