7 Productivity Tips For People That Hate Getting Things Done

17 04 2009

Are you unproductive? It doesn’t have to be complex. First, get things done that matter to you! Here are seven of the best, simple, and sometimes seemingly upside down tips for being more prolific (from Zen Habits)

Number 5 below is my favourite:

Focus on the Three C’s. When it comes down to it, there are three major groups of things we need to do to succeed at whatever it is we want to do. We need to Create, we need to Connect, and we need to Consume. Or in other words, we need to produce/share, build and nurture relationships, and keep ourselves savvy in our field. An imbalance in these areas will stagnate our progress. If we’re always consuming, but never getting our ideas out there, we won’t make any progress toward our goals. If we’re connecting without creating, we’ll have nothing of value to share. And if we’re creating without continually learning, we’ll become outdated. Defining a focus of one of the Three C’s helps us stay focused on our purpose for the day. It also helps us realize that spending time on Twitter and socializing is just as important as creating. It’s all about balance.
