This is the first in a six-part series of episodes exploring the steps of the ProduKtive system. ProduKtive will change how you think for the better, allowing you to cast a stronger vision with bigger, more precise goals.
In the subsequent weeks, we’ll be looking at building a plan, learning to effectively prioritize activities, using time blocking to reflect those priorities, and building habits that make it all possible. But to start with, let’s take a look at the lies of productivity.
Do you consider yourself to be a good multitasker? Is your instinct to tackle everything at once? If so, you’re falling for the same myths so many people are tricked by when it comes to productivity. Studies show that we waste 28% of our time spent while multitasking. Just think how much time that is over the course of a year (it’s weeks, not days).
Stop believing that everything on your plate matters equally, and start prioritizing. Find your One Thing and do it!
Unless you prioritize ruthlessly, you’ll be losing time to multitasking. What’s The ONE Thing you can do, such that by doing it, would make everything else easier or unnecessary?
