Your chances for a better future depends upon your productivity.

Productive people are more successful.

It is important to know, that nobody is paid for effort. You are paid for the productivity you can squeeze from that effort.

It is possible to exert a lot of effort, to be really busy all day, and not produce any favourable results.

Sadly, it is possible to have 'busy but NON-productive days'.

So, it is important to distinguish between Busy-work and Productive work.

  • We can define "Busy" as a measure of the VOLUME of your work.
  • We can define "Productive" as a measure of the VALUE of your work.

Look at the opposing diagonals on the following diagram.

Time Management : Improve Productivity Training

  • Productive work is high value, not-late work
  • Busy work is lower value, non-productive work.

The point is to avoid busy work and get into the high-value Productive Zone.

Productivity training is about increasing your productivity by eliminating BUSY-WORK and replacing is with value-added PRODUCTIVE work.

It is important to become more productive by developing the P List skills.

The P-list are those skills related to Improved productivity; and interestingly, they all begin with the letter P:

  • Profit- Make sure that your organisation is profiting from your effort.
  • Purposefulness - Your purpose is the main reason for your organisations existence.
  • Planning - Write the plan that will achieve your purpose.
  • Productive effort - is the implementation of the plan.
  • Persistence - Persistence is the act of keeping on.
