“Timed Productivity” ~ “Get A Grip” – (21 Mar 2019/The Thursday BLOG) w/Quarterly Update #12/52

Happy (1st full day) SPRING!!

We are all familiar with ‘brainstorming’ whether alone or with our co-workers or a few trusted friend(s) – to generate new ideas.

New twist from “Getting Results The Agile Way’ by J. D. Meier – take a “Worry Break”! Write down everything that worries you. What is valid? Can you break down some needed actions into smaller tasks/projects? Then, ask 3 different people for advice to get their prospective. (They aren’t in the middle of YOUR forest)

  1. Break your “worry” into smaller, workable tasks.
  2. Do 1 of their suggestions.
  3. Work out the kinks, and keep it moving.

SurpriseQuarterly UPDATE: the dates coincided, so you get extra this issue. 1. The time management/efficiency kindle book is in process. If you would like to be included with your testimonial – please email me with 1, – no more than 2 sentences as to how I assisted with your efficiency or productivity. (click on email above). THANK YOU!!

2. A thought that I want to share ~ extrapolated from “Keeping the Sabbath Wholly” by Marva Dawn is this: Do take time to “REST” on Sunday. [Refresh, Regroup, Refocus, Recharge your energies]…get off the merry-go-round of noise and connections. Then – enjoy the benefit of your “REST” on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday! THEN for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday — anticipate the coming “REST“!

“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.
