Whether we like to admit it or not, we all know what we need to do to be more productive. It seems relatively simple but a lot of us don't take the time to acknowledge and commit to do what it takes.Here's my question for you: what are one or two things that if you introduced or did better or more consistently would greatly enhance your productivity?Conversely, what are the one or two things you should do less of that would greatly enhance your productivity? Usually, the firs […]

(Procrastinators take note!) There's no time like the present or as a famous president once said, "Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today."Some of the most successful people I know are really good at getting things done. (A fairly obvious statement, I know!)A common trait seems to be their unwillingness to procrastinate. I'm convinced Nike was influenced by one of my friends in particular -- for as long as I can remember his favorite saying has been: &quo […]

And it's all too easy to get stuck focusing on the external stimulus because it's all around us: Your boss wants this; your friends want that; your spouse, kids... etc.And what about the internal stimulus? What's driving you? If you haven' […]

Time. Our world is obsessed with it. Everywhere you go you see clocks.  They're on your wrist, your phone, your laptop, your wall, TV, microwave, coffeemaker and more.  We've learned that associating activity with time creates urgency and things get done.  That's great!

Anyone who has read "The Seven Habits" is familiar with the concept of "Big Rocks," which pertains to time management -- and also what matters most in your life.Big Rocks are the most important personal and professional things in life, and the key to Big Rocks is to focus on the specific tasks that move each forward.
