procrastination Mar 29, 2019

Procrastination is an enemy to your productivity. I would even say it is an epidemic in our world.

But all hope is not lost.

It is possible to stop procrastinating.

Just as in life, when it comes to learning how to conquer procrastination, there’s a lot to be said about simplicity.

The easier it is to understand a concept or strategy, the more likely are you to implement it.

Some statistics

According to a 2008 survey from Guru, 40% of people have experienced financial loss due to procrastination.

1 in 5 people procrastinates so badly that it may be jeopardizing their jobs, credit, relationships, and even their health.

5 Things That Affect Your Productivity

podcast Mar 22, 2019

There are so many things that affect your productivity. In this post, I'm going to discuss five of the most common and give you suggestions on how to deal with each.

The people you hang around

Everyone is being influenced by people. Most of the time this happens on a subconscious level.

Take an inventory of who you hang around and ask yourself, are they:

  • moving you toward your goals and dreams with positive encouragement and mentoring or
  • pulling you away from them by encouraging you to "take it easy"

Follow people who are productive. Read their books or blogs, listen to their podcast, purchase their courses, join their communities, invest in them.

Suggestion: reduce the amount of time you spend with those that are not encouraging you to be a better you. This may not be easy but you may need to get rid of those who are dragging you down - even if they've been in your life for yours.

What you are consuming

You are consuming things all day, every day: news, social media, gossip....
