“Timed Productivity” ~ ‘Rest’ (The Thursday BLOG, 18July19, #29/52)

  • Use SUNDAY as it was intended – A Day of Rest. Disconnect from the electronic world. Worship. Reflect on what is good in your life.

  • Stop hustling on the weekends – enjoy a childhood hobby; get out of the house with your family; let your mind have fun and de-stress.

“Timed Productivity” ~ ‘Time Management’ (The Thursday BLOG, 11July19, #28/52)

  • 1. Leave room after a task; or, after 30 minutes – to take a break.
  • 2. Build in time for interruptions into your planning. If it does not happen – you have extra time. WIN-WIN.
  • 3. Stop wasting – mindless – time on Social Media. If you are part of meaningful groups: go, interact, and then, move on with your day.

“Timed Productivity” ~ ‘Swamped? – – – Delegate!’ (The Thursday BLOG, 4July19, #27/52)

“Swamped? … Delegate! (The Thursday BLOG, 4July19, #27/52).

  • 1. The person you delegate should be given not only the responsibility to complete the assignment – but, the AUTHORITY.
  • 2. The goal is complete the task – they may not …and, probably will not…do it the same as you. It is okay.
  • 3. Do – responsibly – check on the progress along the way. There are ways NOT to micromanage! Use them.

“Timed Productivity” ~ ‘What is Your Quadrant?’ (13Jun19, #24/52)

“What is Your Quadrant?”, (13Jun19) – Priority setting is most important for YOUR success? Are you in the Quadrant of Accomplishing or trivial play or putting out fires all the time??

  1. Important goals/tasks should be contributing towards your secured future (desires, job goals, financial stability).
  2. Urgent – requires immediate attention: you cut your finger; going to an appointment and you get a flat tire; your child’s school calls!! You will be diverted from your important work/travel.
  3. Proper scheduling of planning activities; and building relationships will yield you the future you want.

Review: Quadrant 1 (Urgent, important); Quadrant 2 [Accomplishing] (NOT urgent, important); Quadrant 3 (urgent, not important) and Quadrant 4 (not urgent, not important).

“Timed Productivity” ~ Efficiency Hacks, (6Jun19, #23/52)

Efficiency Hacks, (6Jun19). Look for ways to be better with less effort; so you will keep the process flowing.

  1. While having 1 email for ‘request’ you are not sure you want forever. UNSUBSCRIBE from those that you are!!!
  2. May take a little effort to set this up…BUT, think of the ease: set up separate email identities for your different ‘hats’ ~ Coaching or your job profession; hobbies; contracts you may administer; family (spouse, children, grands); personal non-family emails. Let your mind explore!!
  3. Stop running all over town: meeting a friend or having a business meeting – either way: schedule the second event nearby where you already are!! Meet a friend at a museum if downtown or a bistro. Meet at a park if you are in the suburb or google a restaurant nearby.
