5 One Minute Productivity Moves

productivity movesIn the last two days I’ve shared with you some of my personal best “Nail my To Do List” practices to play at world-class and produce your best work fast.

Today, in an effort to help you win the war against distraction and interruption I’ll give you “5 One Minute Productivity Tactics” to help you amp up your game and do your best work.

5 One Minute Productivity Tactics

1. Have the courage to get great at saying “No Thanks” to any activities that don’t advance your priorities.

2. Take 60 seconds every morning to do a written game plan for a productive day. “The things that get scheduled are the things that get done.”, from The Greatness Guide.

3. Take a few seconds each day to turn off all your technology and work deeply on a key project with zero distraction.

4. Take 60 seconds to breathe deeply and focus on your progress. This will re-energize and refuel you.

5. Take 60 seconds to un-clutter your work area so you create space for your creativity to flow.

Keep Leading Without A Title! And thanks.

    Another 1-minute productivity move – Think of your loved one.

    Dear Robin,
    Happy fathers Day! I am sure you are a wonderful dad to Kolbi and Bianca as every child deserves to have one.

    A father is a prominent figure in a child’s life esp. to younger pre-schoolers, should never be the one who spreads negativity around them.

    Wish for peace around all the fathers in the world today and always! Live and let live!

    Thanks Robin :) and Enjoy your day with your precious ones.

    Hello Sir

    I am a big fan of yours….I read James Allen’s book per your tips. It was a wonderful read. Thank you for that.
    On the above content, I feel the Point number 2: Needs to state ‘Take 60 minutes’ to do a game plan for the day…

    Please correct me if I am wrong because 60 seconds seems too less a time to frame a day’s game plan.

    Thanks again
