The 3 powers to personal productivity involves being optimally organised in your space, maximising your time efficiency & creating a work/life balance through clearly defined goals with the discipline to carry them out. Getting organised is about making things simpler, smarter, faster for yourself and your teams. It drives revenue and moves you from mediocre to marvellous.
1. Life activation
Goal setting is like setting a holiday destination for your life. If you don’t know what you want to achieve, how are you going to know how to get there. Besides the clarity that having clearly defined goals brings, knowing what you want to achieve mentally (work, finance, education), emotionally (self, friends, family, material), spiritually (religion, spirituality, charity) & physically (health, fitness, well-being) allows you to take better ownership of your time, prioritise effectively and say no.
To get started gift yourself 1 hour of quiet time and jot down 100 things you desire. Write without restriction. Once done, group your list into lose categories and assess if what you desire is in line with what you are currently doing. If not, perhaps now is a good time to get yourself focused on the bigger picture that is your life, after all, all work and no play makes Jack/Jill a dull boy/girl.
Personal Leadership Development comes from being the best you. Take ownership of what is not working and have courage to change things for the better. Getting organised is not rocket science, step back from your current situation and assess what can improve. Doing something, anything, every day towards reaching your goals will keep you and your team moving forward. There is power in progress … enjoy the ride!
