Boost productivity in your business by applying some simple but effective strategies to get more done and become more productive. Here are 12 ways to take your business to the next level:

1. Get the most out of meetings. Be organized and prepared for meetings to increase effectiveness and time savings.

2. Focus your energy on things that matter. Don’t let trivial tasks take time away from things that are really important.

3. Identify your time-stealers. Everyone has little things that detract Work Smarter Not Hardertheir attention and make them lose focus. Figure out what these are and work to eliminate them, if only for a few hours a day. For example: checking emails, texting, taking unnecessary phone calls, chatting online with others etc…

4. Be punctual. Being on time is a big deal. Never keep people waiting for appointments or meetings if you can help it.

5. Respond to your correspondence within a reasonable amount of time. You don’t have to be chained to your inbox, but make sure you respond to emails within 30 minutes to 1 hour on a specific time every day. This avoids disrupting your schedule and most importantly freeing you up to be more productive.

6. Do only what is necessary. There are times when going above and beyond works, but doing so on a daily basis can derail your progress on more important issues. Get the key things done first, then see if you have time for additional things. Write down what things are the top five priorities of things that need to be done in the order they need to be done. Stick to the priority list and don’t skip the harder tasks to do the easier tasks. This is counter productive whether you realize it or not. So stick to the plan.

Time Management

7. Stick to schedules and routines. While they may not be the most exciting things, schedules and routines can help streamline and improve your productivity.

8. Boost productivity by organizing and managing your schedule. Use any tools and utilities you have at your disposal to prioritize your day and keep track of what you need to get done.

9. Boost productivity by planning for more than you think you can do. While this may sound stressful, it can actually be a great motivator. If you manage to get everything done, you’ll enjoy a great sense of achievement.

10. Get to work early on occasion. Sometimes an uninterrupted half hour in an unoccupied office can help you get key things done or allow you to plan your day before there are any distractions to slow you down.

11. Know that sometimes stress is good. While too much of anything, especially stress, can be bad, sometimes a little stress can be the motivation to get you moving, allowing you to get more done.

12. Do your least favorite tasks first. Prioritize your tasks and get your most tedious and least desirable tasks out of the way earlier in the day. After that, everything else will be a breeze.

What Is Stopping You From Success In Life ?

Do You Think That Success In Life Is All About You?

Success In LifeTake off those binders that are preventing you from seeing what is causing the lack of success in your life.

It might sound a bit harsh but you need to hear it from someone who has had this experience prior to having any success in life.

There are obviously a few things that need to happen before you could even remotely start gaining any kind of traction in your life.

First, here are a few things that could be sabotaging yourself, your business and your life in general.

  1. Blaming others for your failures.
  2. Saying, I don’t have enough time.
  3. Saying, I don’t know how to do it.
  4. Watching television.
  5. Spending time doing none productive tasks.
  6. Checking emails 3 hours a day.
  7. Spending 8 hours on Facebook or any other social media platform.
  8. It’s to hard and I quit.

Blaming others for your failures – just take a good look in the mirror and ask yourself, Who is responsible for my success in life ?

Answer: You will come up with possibly two answers or more. You will say, my ex-wife is at fault, my two month baby doesn’t let me sleep, or your job is to demanding.

Or you will take responsibility for yourself and say, ME ( I Am The Architect Of My Own Life And I Will Succeed At Whatever I Want To Achieve! )

I don’t have enough time – If I could get a nickel for every time I have heard this excuse, I would be a millionaire doing nothing else.

Time management is critical to anyone who wants to succeed in life or in your business. There are only 24 hours in one day and you could never get it back once it’s gone.

So, the question you have to pose yourself is, What legacy or future will I leave my kids and/or family when I am gone ? Will it be, You never achieved anything worthwhile talking about or will they say, he was an inspiration and someone to model after.

You will be surprised at what you can accomplish if it is only 30 minutes a day. Whether it is getting rid of that extra weight causing you health problems down the line or wanting to start a new business.

Anyone who has had success in life will tell you that their success did not come over night and some cases years to achieve but they never gave up.

I don’t know how to do it – Here is a perfect excuse of why it is always easier to take the road of less resistance. Nothing in life is easy, not raising your kids, teaching a dog how to sit, going to work in your job for 40 years, building a business or whatever you do in life.

95% of people that achieved success took what they wanted to accomplish and said, How can I learn to do this and how can I get really good at it and went for it.

Watching Television: One of the biggest time stealers only second to probably Facebook as I write this.

Do you think that if you want to achieve any kind of success in life you will get the tools, how-to, knowledge, or training you need out of television ?

I hope you answered, NO! Turning off the television alone will free up at least 30 minutes to 3 hours of your time to achieve whatever you want.

Doing none productive tasks ( Checking emails 3 hours a day, Browsing on Facebook for 8 hours etc.. )

Close all the windows on your browser and only open one that has some kind of training or reading materials that motivate you to move forward in your business and in life.

It’s to hard and I quit – These are the people who spend their lives talking about success while successful people are doing it and achieving success.

The only people that fail are those who quit.

Even if you don’t succeed the first time or the second time or even a third, fourth or fifth time as long as you never quit no one can say that you are a failure.

The only way you will succeed is, helping others succeed by sharing your knowledge, sharing trade tips or sharing whatever you are good at and never worry about competition. The only competition is, Yourself!

For me, Quitting Is Not An Option!
