What Rating Do You Give Yourself In Personal Productivity?
What rating would you give yourself on personal productivity? Do you have a systematic plan for improving your effectiveness in your daily work?
Superachieving business people and athletes know what it takes to motivate themselves, maintain focus in the face of obstacles and drive forward to the completion of their vision and dreams.
They take charge of their work by being aware of their personal patterns of behavior and by then adjusting and experimenting with new ways of being.
Imagine if you could quickly recover from fatigue, mental setbacks, surprise problems, overloaded task lists, not enough time and all else that can stand in your way from working near optimum levels.
Top achievers begin the process by carefully noting what is and what is not in their control. They then ONLY focus on those things over which they have control and let go of those things which are out of their control.
If you list all the things you must do in a day and all the roadblocks that might fall in your way, you will quickly realize that the only thing you have true control over is…yourself.
So to improve productivity and effectiveness, begin by focusing on yourself. Focus on your attitude, your thoughts, how you feel, how you react to problems, how you prepare to succeed, how you review your performance and how you set and go after realising your goals.
