Controlling Your Productivity with a Daily Process
I have said it before and I will say it again:
Productivity is a HABIT.
It needs to be built upon and done over and over before one can consider NOT thinking about it, because then it will be muscle memory.
Even still, when it becomes muscle memory, we don’t want it to get stale.
Why Do You Need a Process?
Makes your day more fun and engaging
Buildings habits is a long game, not a short one
Take control of daily repeating tasks
Learn lessons from stairs!
To start my process and what I tell my clients, I have 4 daily check in’s:
1) Create daily checklist of actions to take daily
2) Approximate time for all tasks/meetings
3) Schedule repeating daily appointments
4) Magic is in execution and adjustments
What do I mean by all of this? Basically, set realistic expectations for completing your daily process!
Set Realistic Expectations
One way to manage what is realistic is to also do a “closing” checklist. Just like when stores close for the day, you should also have a list of things you check through. It might not be closing out the cash register, but it is similar!
1) Check messages
2) Review today’s actions
3) Reschedule anything not completed
4) Set tomorrow’s schedule including meetings and project times
5) Visualize making it happen
