Stephen Pierce On How To Be Productive

If you want to know how to be productive and experience peak performance, then we need to take a step back from the to-do list, the newest productivity app and the various ways of getting things done from smart goals to checklist.

Now, I’m not saying those tools are not necessary. In many ways they are, however they are not sufficient within themselves.

Understanding how to be productive starts with understanding that performance starts in your head, it get’s agreement from your heart and it shows up in your hands.

If you’re like me, then you know from first hand experience the frustration of buying into the newest hippest productivity tool or app or method only for it to seem not to work for you.

Perhaps you have half a dozen, a dozen or even more productivity apps on your phone or tablet. Maybe you’re library of physical and digital books are loaded with volumes of time management and productivity advice.

We live in an environment where demands on our time, energy and money are increasing and along with that there is an increase in technology and the number of ways to handle those demands.

Yet, in a world of hyper technology to help us manage better and get more done with less sweat, it seems like instead of taming our time, technology is taming us as time slips away and as we battle with technology and struggle to manage time we seem to be producing more stress and less peace.

One reason this happens is because time management without mind management is a management disaster. It’s a recipe for frustration and it’s counter-productive.

A prerequisite to effective management of time and space is to take the time to manage the space between your two ears. In other words, mind management is the foundation that successful life and time management is built on.

With a house, the house can only be as good and strong as the foundation that it’s built on. So it is with the management of anything external, it’s effectiveness is based on how strong your internal management is because that’s your foundation.

Stephen Pierce 5 Steps On How To Be Productive1. Plan – Your plan identifies the who, what, when and where of closing the gap between where you are and where you want to be.
2. Prioritize – Sequence is everything. You don’t put your pants on first and then your underwear or you shoes on first and then your socks. Knowing the order of what to do keeps things in order when you’re doing them.
3. Do It Now – The fastest route to getting to where you want to go is starting now, because any delays in starting equals delays in arriving.
4. Automate – Don’t do manually what you can do automatically. Look to leverage technology and get acceleration from automation.
5. Eliminate – Prune of your weakest activities and the nonessential task. Separate what’s nice to do from what you need to do.
