Personal Productivity: ONE Thing Within Your Control

Most people in business would like to be a little more successful. More specifically, most contractors would love to make more money.

Important-Urgent Chart

No matter your profession, if you can develop your “time management” skills to the point where you are more productive than the people around you, then you WILL be more successful.  After all, the more productive contractor fits more into their schedule and, ultimately, makes more money!

It is NOT rocket science! It is about continually looking at how you might improve. Here are some points to think about:

  1. There are many ways in which we all waste time every day. What if you could reclaim some, or most of that wasted time? Could you work on a small project for another client? Add more effort into a matrix for a proposal? Do more networking?

  2. Most of us get easily distracted which takes us away from our most productive work.  If it’s not the plethora of social media, it’s the news flashes, water cooler gossip or our private lives intruding into our work time.  The ability to FOCUS on work and tame those distractions will help us reclaim that wasted time and make us MUCH more productive.

  3. Most people coast through their day and just “do stuff.” They are busy from the minute they arrive to the minute they leave, but it is not always a productive busy!  The only way that you get better is by making time to improve!

This improvement is ALL within your control.  It is VERY easy to reclaim time each day, and if you can make that into productive time then you can be more efficient, take on more value adding tasks, and just maybe get more time to enjoy leisure activities in a stress free way!

Are you prepared to put in the effort, to get some ideas, try them and really work at improving your productivity?
