The clock is ticking, there’s a deadline approaching, and you’re starting to feel a mild panic as you know you have only an hour to do four hours of work.
You start to curse yourself. You had plenty of time to complete the work but chose to do other things – things that seemed important to you at the time, but now you realize how you squandered your time.
You crash the deadline horribly and you feel guilty. You waste more precious time thinking up excuses to give to your client or boss, and when all is said and done, you still have to finish the task, except now you’re emotionally drained and your creativity is but wisps of smoke in the wind.
It doesn’t have to be like this, though.
You can be every bit as productive as any of the great people who inspire millions.
It shouldn’t surprise you to learn that even the most successful people in the world have exactly the same amount of time each day as you do. But perhaps it does? Maybe you hadn’t thought about it in those terms before, but knowing that, don’t you now feel a glimmer of hope that you can turn things around and achieve your potential?
Wouldn’t it be a huge relief to know that you’re making the best use of your time? How much more creative could you be if you felt you had control over your time. What would it be like to feel you had an abundance of time?
We’ve assembled a great list of productivity posts for you. You’ll learn how to do more in less time, how to break bad habits, and instill new good habits. You’ll also learn how to rise early and get the best possible start to the day.
No more crashed deadlines, no more unnecessary stress, just great results every day.
GET THE BOOK BY ERIN FALCONER
Erin shows overscheduled, overwhelmed women how to do less so that they can achieve more. Traditional productivity books—written by men—barely touch the tangle of cultural pressures that women feel when facing down a to-do list. How to Get Sh*t Done will teach you how to zero in on the three areas of your life where you want to excel, and then it will show you how to off-load, outsource, or just stop giving a damn about the rest.
