They don't work at peak proficiency or with focus… they are just doing everything that gets tossed at them trying … (5 comments)

time management: How To Be Wildly Productive! - 07/25/12 05:45 AM
Distractions, Distractions, Distractions!
Every day serves up a gazillion choices. If you can choose your highest priorities, focus on the actions that will provide the biggest payoff and ignore the time-sucks, you will be ahead of 98% of the population!
In Charles Duhigg's book, The Power of Habit: Why we do what we do in life and in business, he references a survey by Duke University that found over 40% of what we do everyday is not conscious decisions but habit. Most of us have habits that distract and waste precious time. The great news is when we become aware of these, … (8 comments)

time management: Busy or Productive? There's a BIG difference! - 04/27/12 04:22 AM
How do you decide what actions to take today? Is it the squeakiest wheel? The easiest to-dos? Or do you have a plan for the day? I have long advocated beginning the day identifying the 3 items that would give you the most leverage towards your long term goals. Put those 3 on a sticky note or as a pop up on your computer and work on them first, come back to them as you are distracted or fight a fire and stay focused on progress with them.

time management: BEING THE PERSON WHO Has the energy to give... - 02/09/10 12:17 PM
I know you know this......You have to take care of yourself FIRST!!!! ALWAYS. You can only give to others in proportion to what you have. If you are tired, scared, frantic or beat up...you don't have much to offer the people you want to serve.
