You have a list, so you should be fine. You have so many things to do, but as long as you have your full-proof productivity system, you’ll be okay.
Except, it’s already the end of the week and you’ve ticked off a few things, but even more get added.
It feels like you’re on a hamster wheel. You’re always busy, but you’re not getting anywhere. You still have so many things to do and no time to do it.
If you’ve been moving like this for the last few years – stressed out, time-crunched, and feeling the anxiety mount as you struggle to accomplish things, then your productivity system might not be working.
You CAN get the life you want. The one where you spend time doing things you actually want to do instead of chasing an endless list of tasks.
It starts with the 80/20 principle.
20% of what you do produces 80% of your output or income.
Within that 20%, you have your work, your projects, and your activities. So what are you spending that time on? That 20% produces your biggest return on investment, so you should be spending it wisely.
At Full Circle, we often ask ourselves, “Is this the best use of my time?” If it is, then you’ll get great results. If it isn’t, then you’re on that hamster wheel. You’re spending your time on things that aren’t producing your desired outcomes.
We’ve determined three key things to increase your productivity. We explain it in more detail in the video – so be sure to give it a watch. When you’re watching the video, keep these three important questions in mind:
1. What’s your time worth?
2. Where and how do you spend your time?
3. What tasks are most important?
