How Do I Become More Productive?

“Do you have any suggestions of tangible steps that I can take to help me fit everything on my “to do” list into my day? I feel like I need a 30 hour day!” ~ Jeff, Chula Vista, CA

Dear Jeff,

Unfortunately you cannot add more hours to your day, but you can get better R.O.T.I. (return on time invested) out of your day. Take the time to break up your day to fit your and your family’s needs.

First, determine when the most productive part of your day is. Then, dedicate one hour of your most productive time to the most important person in the world – yourself. During this hour, do something for you to get you where you want to go – both meditation and exercise can fit into this time period. Also, this is a good time to review and visualize your short, medium and long term goals (if you don’t have any, this is the time to write them out), do your daily affirmations, and whatever else is important to YOU to help get you where you want to go!

Now that you have given time to yourself, you will be in a better position to give it away to others. Without giving time to yourself first, you will not have it to give away. You cannot give something away that you do not have inside to give away.

As for the rest of your day, break it up into time periods – work, family, finances, etc. and do what you have to do, even if you don’t want to do it.

Before long, time will not be your master, you will be the master of time.
