Personal Productivity – A Simple Strategy To Boost Your Productivity

How productive are you? We all know that frustrating feeling of being “busy” and not getting anything done. Productivity is not so much about how much you get done but rather about how well you use your time. Time is a precious commodity and you have a limited amount of it every day. How you use every minute of your day determines the quality of your life. By being more productive you can have a much more balanced life because it allows you to use your time better.

Increasing your productivity is not so much about using will power as it is about having a good strategy. You need to find ways to focus on what’s most important in your life and to focus your energy on that. This is where true fulfillment lies.

Although there are many ways to manage your time and to boost your productivity and performance, there is a simple little technique that works every time. I encourage you to start using it – and to use it daily.

What this technique involves is a 5 minute exercise every day that helps you focus on those areas in your life that needs your energy, your time and your focus.

Start by writing down what you wish to accomplish this year.

Then write down what you wish to accomplish this month.

Then write down what you wish to accomplish this week.

Then write down what you wish to accomplish today.

By starting with the bigger picture it helps you to focus on the bigger goal. By breaking it down to smaller pieces you get to those critical action steps that will help you to do today what will eventually lead you to your most important goals. Its important to keep this simple. If you get in the habit of doing this every day you will soon realize that it helps you to stay very focused and helps you to block out so much of the distractions that causes you to lose sight of your biggest goals.
