In this post, I’d like to share my really simple but very effective
3 step plan to achieving super-human levels of productivity.
you read the following book:
It’s a great book, so take the time to order it and read it.
What are the three steps that you need to follow to become
significantly more productive?
- Create a to-do/tasks list daily.
- Create a list of rewards for each task.
- Prioritize the list and always do your ONE thing first.
You’re either thinking about how simple this looks, or what
the “ONE thing” means. Let me explain the latter.
You have probably heard about the 80/20 rule. It’s also called
the Pareto principle. Basically, 80% of your results come from
20% of the action/work that you do. So, what should your main goal
be? To find that “20%” and focus on it!
As an example, for me my ONE thing is producing content. I know that
before I do anything else, I absolutely must write/record/create my
daily dose of new content.
Previously, while working more on my email marketing business,
my ONE thing was generating traffic (clicks).
It’s OK to sacrifice other tasks in favor of doing your ONE thing.
Once you’ve read Gerry Keller’s book this whole concept will be a lot more
clear to you. Finding what matters and focusing on it – that’s the key!
“Focus on the few, not the many” – Dan Pena
Now let’s cover the steps.
Create a to-do list daily.
I can’t stress this enough – if there is ONE (see?) thing that I would recommend
you to do, that would make a gigantic difference in your productivity, it is a to-do list.
Not just a to-do list. I mean a list of tasks that you write on a daily basis.
Every evening I sit down for a good 15 minutes or so and review the day.
What I’ve accomplished, what I haven’t and why. But more importantly…
I write out the exact tasks that I want to complete the next day.
Make this a habit and I promise and guarantee you’ll be amazed at
just how much you can actually get done.
Create a list of rewards for each task.
Most people skip this step, usually because they don’t know
how crucial it is.
If you’re on my mastermind list (if you aren’t, stop, scroll up
and subscribe – on your right-hand side) you should’ve received
an email that I sent about this very topic.
For every single task, set a reward (actually write it down).
This can be anything from eating some chocolate, going for
a nice walk outside to buying a new computer.
Of course, the bigger, more “scary” the task – the bigger
your reward should be.
Prioritize the list and always do your ONE thing first.
Once again – you’ll understand the concept more once you’ve read
the book, but basically – don’t just make a list of tasks…
Mark the tasks from most to least important and complete them
in that order. Even if it means only doing one or two out of
many, always remember:
Focus on the few, not the many.
And don’t forget that no matter how many things you’ve got left
to do, always do your ONE thing first and finish it.
