6 Keys to Improving Your Productivity

It is not enough to be busy... The question is: what are we busy about?
~Henry David Thoreau~

 We live in a time of "dramatic distractions". The advancement in technology has made it so that we can be reached 24/7. If you were asked to complete a productivity journal for 48 hours, giving an account for all your actions and tasks completed during an 8 or 12 hour time period, what percentage of your time would you say that you spent completing tasks associated with manifesting experiences that are expanding your personal, professional, and spiritual well-being?

With so many distractions during our day, we have to become diligent in our efforts toward what gets our attention. I know for me, I have been guilty of spending too much time on social media networking sites and not enough of time making connections with people, face to face.

On Tuesday, August 20, 2013 I will begin my 31-Day Procrastination Diet. I got this idea from one of Robin Sharma's videos. Today, I have been working on scheduling many of the actions and tasks that I've been saying I've wanted or needed to do to make specific progress in certain aspects of my personal and professional life.

Each day during this 31-Day Procrastination Diet, I have made a commitment to taking a minimum of one action that I've been putting off doing. I have a specific short-term goal that I want to achieve within these thirty-one days, so in scheduling these actions I have the end in mind.

Like an athlete preparing for a BIG game, I am watching films, ie You Tube videos made by some of the best people that I'm aware of who are playing a BIGGER game. One of those individuals happen to be Robin Sharma, find out more information about him here.

The following video by Robin shares 6 keys to unleashing our productivity. They will certainly help me as I begin my 31-Day Procrastination Diet. I believe they will help you as well, so I decided to share them with the GFF community.

Have you been putting off til tomorrow what you can do today? If so, why don't you join me on 31-Day Procrastination Diet and build momentum for achieving a short-term goal that enhances your well-being. On Tuesdays, you can report your results here. We can offer one another support and advice as we complete actions that sparks our inner drive.

What did you think about the ideas shared in this video? Let me know in the comments below.

Thank you for sharing and contributing to the growth of the GFF community.

Thank you for sharing this post with your friends.

8 Reasons You Feel Emotionally Exhausted

If you neglect to recharge a battery, it dies. And if you run full speed ahead without stopping for water, you lose momentum to finish the race.
~ Oprah Winfrey ~

How often have you thought, “Where’s my get up and go? I’m tired all the time. But it’s not my body that’s tired. It’s like it’s me that’s tired inside my body.” So many of us are caught up in an energy rat race”, according to Mira Kirshenbaum, author of The Emotional Energy Factor: The Secrets High Energy People Use to Beat Emotional Fatigue. She says, “The demands of life, if not managed, will exhaust our emotional energy.” Emotional energy is defined by Kirshenbaum as “the preconditions for everything we care about. Everything worth doing that’s difficult gets lost without it. Marriages fail when we run out of the emotional energy to reach one more time across the divide of anger and silence. Dreams die when we lack the emotional energy to hang in there in the face of all the obstacles.” In my blog post, Simple Steps to Mana…

Managing Your Greatest Workplace Frustration

Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.

If I conducted a survey on your job and it consisted of this question: Out of the following two issues, which would you say is the greatest source of your workplace frustration: “people issues” or “job tasks”, which of the two issues do you believe would receive the most votes?
