Back on February 7, 2021, I wrote, I've Declared Myself a Writer…Now What?, announcing that I declared myself a writer on January 23rd.
But until June 14, I'd not written anything.
I wish I had a good answer for you.
I failed to do the very thing I wrote about in the last blog post: write daily.
Well, that's not entirely true.
I did write for 25 consecutive days. Not a bad streak, if I do say so myself.
So why did I stop?
As I reflected on...
Of the many questions I've been asked over the course of my ten-plus years of being a productivity coach, my favorite has to be:
What does productivity mean to me?
I understand that many people want to know tips, hacks, or strategies to BE more productive to get more done.
But need to dive deeper.
If you don't know WHY you want to be more productive, then what's the point?
If I teach you how to get more done with your day, so what?
You'll feel good for a little while...
Everyone makes mistakes with their to-do list.
But in this post, I will give you three common mistakes people make when it comes to their to-do lists. I will venture that most people have committed one, two, or all three of these at different times.
Number one: not even having a to-do list.
Do you keep everything you need to do in your head, thinking you won't forget?
Here's the problem with that. Neuroscience has told us that the brain can only remember so many things. It doesn't...
Follow me on Facebook.
Join my Facebook Group.
I have a love-hate relationship with Facebook. And I don't think I'm alone. I think there are a lot of people that agree with me. Right now, there are 3.2 billion people on Facebook and Instagram. That's a lot of people. And even though I have stayed distant from Facebook for many years, I have returned, and I'm going to tell you about it.
I am not on Instagram; I did delete my Instagram...
Happiness, success, and abundance appear when we get rid of OVERWHELM, allowing us to reach our full potential.
Productivity might not seem the sexiest topic to focus on but let me share something with you. Success and joy daily are pretty tremendous.
Once you are focused on the good things, more of them come your way.
Focus is a big 'YES' in the land of productivity. It may sound cliched, but what you focus on is what you move...
There is a very, very sneaky obstacle to your ability to focus. This is really going to blow your mind. Maybe it won't, but I think it will.
So what am I talking about?
Today, I want to talk to you about this hidden obstacle.
I'm talking about not social media because everyone knows what a distraction it is. I'm not talking about email or people.
I'm talking about ambient noise.
Think about this: you're working on a project. It could be writing a blog post, writing copy for your website,...
Let's talk about living a life without overwhelm. I want to talk to you about notifications on this thing. Our beloved smartphones. Our beloved smartphones are kind of like an appendage. They go with us everywhere now. But we have to be the human beings. We have to be in...
In this episode, Mark shares five simple ways you can have an incredibly productive day or week 2021.
I know in the world of May of 2021 your attention is pulled in so many directions. You have podcasts, blog posts, you have live broadcasts, you have posts, you have Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tik Tok, only missing Snapchat, and then, you know, the networks that come in the future.
Now what I'm going to share with you can be...
I was not born, Mister Productivity. Shocking.
No, as a matter of fact, I was born a baby, like you were. I'm assuming you're not an alien. I'm assuming you're a real live person that was born a baby.
I really didn't know what I wanted to do with most of my life. And so I wanted to share with you today, the creation of Mister Productivity.
I was born and raised in Rochester, New York, moved to Houston in 1997. I think the first occupation I ever wanted to be was a firefighter because my dad...
Let's talk about happiness because I believe when you are happy, you can be productive. Happier people are more productive. When you are miserable, I would argue you cannot be the most productive version of yourself.
I've got 12 ideas for you on how you can be happier starting today. And then you can be more productive starting today. Even if it's 1%. 1% is better than zero.
Number one, smile.
Now. when I say smile, I don't mean a creepy smile. I mean a genuine smile. Back in the day when I...
So let's talk about patience today, shall we?
Very interesting that I'm talking about this today because my patience is a little thin at this moment in time. And the reason why is a whole bunch of things happened. Some things I expected, some things I didn't. Like one of the websites I use is currently down. So my day is kind of off so far.
And I'm like, "Huh, I said I was going to talk about patience on the show today, and here I am very impatient."
I struggle with...
Recently, I had the privilege of being on Stephen Lu's LinkedIn Live. And we talked about, you guessed it, productivity. When we were done, he graciously sent me the recording to the LinkedIn live. And I asked him, "Hey, can I put this on my podcast?" And he said, "Sure." So this is the LinkedIn Live from Stephen Lu, that we did a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy.
I'm here with Mark Struczewski. I think I said that...
