One of the hardest parts of being your own boss is being productive.
It takes motivation to ‘get stuff done’ and without it you’re screwed in this business. I’ve studied and tried a ton of stuff to get me motivated and to actually get stuff done.
…even on bad days where I am not motivated and don’t feel like doing it – I still end up getting at least a few hours of solid work it without much actual resistance (the rest of the time I’m usually watching movies or doing something ‘fun’).
It wasn’t always this way… I had to re-program my mind to make sure I get real work done every single day I’m on the job.
I’m not talking about my designated ‘days off’ because those are important breaks that we all need which actually are great motivators to take action.
Okay I promised to shed some light on the ‘get done by noon’ method which I learned from a combination of products mostly double your productivity it works for me (it may not work for everyone).
This may seem like common sense, but the key is to get into a routine of doing business this way. First you need to identify your most important or most intensive task (require the most brain power).
Once you’ve done that typically the day or night before you are ready to go. First thing in the morning when you have done your personal morning stuff. You should plan on doing some uninterrupted productive work.
The important thing is to hold off distractions for later in the day like checking email, news, cell phone… (anything that will distract you).
This morning work ethic will soon become a habit and better yet, that hard work will sometimes carry on to the rest of the day and you’ll be shocked at how much stuff you get done.
Make a real commitment to do this and you’ll at least double your productivity.
