“Timed Productivity” ~ “UP” Your Game – (7 Mar 2019/The Thursday BLOG) #10/52

Next level time management is your ticket to real productivity – “YOUR WAY”. Discipline is not a bad word – it ignites your efficiency.

Mistakes: a/thinking time management is about “time”; b/embracing multi-tasking that leaves you lackluster and mentally tired; and c/you spend way more time on tasks than you need.

  1. Begin to function from a inner place of confidence and mental clarity.
  2. Use Pomodoro method to intentionally focus on projects (25 Min work-5 Min break).
  3. Develop YOUR OWN rituals (morning: start your day productively; and evening: end your day set to be efficient tomorrow.

What is YOUR Mission Statement? Yes – YOUR personal mission statement for YOU; You and your family; and/or – You and your business?

The framework of your statement will take a little thought to focus in on your dreams, goals, and desires. Even government agencies have a 3 specific, purposed mission statement for their specific agency about their agency’s function.

Some may not be aware ~ My ‘BLOG subject’ is determined from my weekly Instagram (7-day themed time management/efficiency) tips. You are invited to follow me on Instagram; LinkedIn; Twitter; or Pinterest. Click here –> at the top of my website are the 4 social media symbols.

Begin your formulation with these questions:

  • 1. With your legacy in mind – what is your goal/focus for your life?
  • 2. Who do you want to assist and pour value into – for their life and circumstances?
  • 3. How will you do what needs to be done, ultimately, for others betterment?

My Mission Statement is: “With Divine Guidance ~ complete the relevant items within my personal and professional life competently {God, Family, and Business Endeavors} to the best of my ability”. Is30:15; Mt11:28; and Ps116:6-7

“Timed Productivity” ~ Time Tune-UP – (21 February 2019/The Thursday BLOG) #8/52

My tips are for YOU to develop YOUR way to be more productive. So find what you will work with and use. Tweak what you do have to make it work for YOU! Otherwise, you will keep spinning around YOUR mountain.

YOU must develop YOUR own system or even a RITUAL to solidly accomplish YOUR daily tasks.

  1. Using a small pocket-sized notebook.
  2. Use of a software program to ‘dump your brain’ – with all the categories YOU need to set for YOU. My personal recommendation is TRELLO, (can access from any device).
  3. Make use of your phone contact section for YOUR special notes/reminder – passwords, a friend birthday day or anniversary, order numbers, if you need for a call-[under the company contact card]. Contacts are alphabetical and you can assign your our code. You always have it with you!

“Timed Productivity” ~ Are YOU Driving? – (7 February 2019/The Thursday BLOG) #6/52

From the book – “Getting Results the Agile Way” by J. D. Meier is the concept ‘Drive Your Day’.

Are YOU? Do you awake with 3 tasks for your day? Or, you spend your day reacting to what comes at you! That is not productive – at all! I call that ‘playing tennis…without a racket’.

  • 1. Have a plan; laced with flexibility.
  • 2. Make ‘accomplishing‘ decisions.
  • 3. “DRIVE” through your tasks.

“Timed Productivity” ~ Clear to Neutral 2/52

www.CoachingbyGJ.com 

Welcome to week 2 – THURSDAY 10 January 2019. Clear to Neutral (CTN) – sound a little strange. Neutral is your starting point to achieve what you need in YOUR best environment possible.

Going to fix some breakfast —- SKEECH…dirty dishes and pans in the sink!! Had you washed your dishes/pans last night – your kitchen would be ready for you – Neutral. Do you have the food you want to fix ….or, is Food at the grocery store.

There is something that sets your tone for the day – making your bed when you get out of it!! Having been in the military ~ this is a no-brainier for me (smiles). No retreat!! Onward into your day.

You are leaving your office. What did you leave behind? An office desk “cleared” and a post it note with the 3 top items for tomorrow when you come in? OR – a mess of papers and phone call slip of people you have to contact. Did you look at your calendar — any meetings first thing or you will just surprise yourself when you get in?

  • 1. Examine what are your current habits?
  • 2. Where can you introduce “CTN” into your activities?
  • 3. Write out the steps (save in your phone) – – do DAILY to build new productive habits.
