21 Great Ways to Double Your Productivity
All successful people are very productive. They simply get things done. So how do you increase your productivity? In this lesson, you learn exactly how to start living more productively, starting with small ideas like increasing your ability to type, and moving on to larger ideas, like re-inventing yourself annually.
The Miracle of Self-Discipline
Self-discipline is the master key to riches, and the key to self-discipline is to sacrifice immediate pleasure in the present so you can enjoy greater rewards in the future. Again, self-discipline is a learnable skill, and this lesson reveals tools and techniques you can use to increase yours so you complete the most important tasks (even when it’s unusually difficult, and even when you don’t feel like it!).
Success is goals. All else is commentary. When you learn to set goals and make systematic progress toward achieving them, you can accomplish anything you want. During this lesson, you learn to become unstoppable in the pursuit of your goals. The result: you get everything you want, every time.
The Psychology of Time Management
When you begin to place a high value on your time, your mastery of time management increases — and your level of success follows. During this lesson, you learn a crucial fact: time management behaviors are a matter of choice. So how do you choose to spend your time? This lesson outlines precisely how you can set your mind up for automatic success when it comes to time management.
Getting Yourself Organized
When you become highly organized, you become highly effective — and in control of your life. Imagine feeling like you control every aspect of your life … it’s possible. This lesson details specific steps you can take to become more organized than ever before, thanks to proper planning, prioritizing and implementing.
Establishing Proper Priorities
The key to personal effectiveness is the ability to set priorities among your goals, tasks and activities. If you’ve ever struggled with prioritizing — because everything or nothing seems important — then this is where you become crystal clear about how to choose what comes first. This lesson outlines how to decide what to do first — and (even more importantly) what NOT to do at all.
Developing the Work Habits to Get Things Done
When you develop the habits of focus and concentration, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish — both in quality and quantity. This lesson describes exactly how you can take projects from start to finish, one after another, until you get done everything you set out to do. When this becomes a habit, you develop a reputation for being fast and accomplished — and nothing can stop you.
Time Saving Techniques
No matter who you are, what you do, or where you work, your productivity can fall victim to time wasters. Luckily, there are systems you can set in place to eliminate time wasters all together — or at least cope with them more efficiently. In this lesson, you learn how to identify these time wasters and then blast through them so your time is spent working. Remember, time is irreplaceable. But saving time is like earning time.
If you live in overwhelm and desperation, you probably procrastinate. Procrastination is one of the most common barriers to success. The good news is that you can beat it. This lesson outlines exactly how you can overcome procrastination by continually taking action towards achieving your goals. Procrastination is a habit — and breaking it will pay off for the rest of your life.
Keeping Up and Getting Ahead
Especially today, competition is fierce, no matter what field you’re in. If you want to stand out, to succeed, you’ve got to stay ahead of your competitors. Here’s something to keep in mind: one new idea or piece of information can change the direction of your life. When you read this lesson, you learn how to exercise your mind so you’re always learning, always moving up, and always staying ahead of your competition.
Saving Time in Dealing with Others AND The Philosophy of Time Management
Your interactions with others consume as much time as any other part of your day, so shouldn’t they be as efficient as possible? Poor communication with others leads to tons of time wasted — but the first part of this lesson reveals how to streamline yours so everyone gets what they need — in as little time as possible. The second part of this lesson helps you prime your mind for excellent time management, long term. Long-term perspective is the reason for upper social and economic mobility in America.
Simplify Your Life
If you ever feel overwhelmed, or like you have too much to do and too little time, it’s time for you to simplify. When your goals align with your values, life becomes simple because everything you do in pursuit of a goal brings you closer to living in alignment with your values. This lesson gives you advice for simplifying your life so you experience greater enjoyment and fulfillment in everything you do.

However, don’t be discouraged. If you believe in your business, passion will prevail. On average, 75 percent of small-business owners are confident in their company. And why shouldn’t they be?
