We only get a little bit of “willpower” each day, and we “spend” much or most of it
making decisions - using it up before we even know what happened to it.
How do we increase our productivity, when we’re already working at maximum capacity? How do we take more time off to get the rejuvenation we need, when we have so much to do? How do we deal with the increasing distractions and interruptions that are taking our attention away from the high-value work that makes us the most money? How do we systemize our productivity, and create habits that work for us naturally and automatically every day? How do we identify those activities in our life
and business that will give us the highest possible return, and make us the most
possible profit and income?
Mistake to avoid: Getting into actions without knowing what the VALUE is of the action
to them long-term - not knowing the difference between an activity that’s only going to
give them a little result, or an activity that’s going to increase the value of their business
and pay them dividends and profits for the long-term.
We Made Crystal Clear
For most of us, we haven’t gotten crystal clear on the handful of activities that bring us
the highest returns - that profit us the most - and then organizing our days, weeks and
lives around making sure those activities get done.
