Happy New Year!This is the my first post, about productivity advice, for the new year, and I would first like to wish you a very Happy New Year and all the best in 2011!
Productivity AdviceI’d like to share an interesting and helpful pod cast about productivity I found, today, during my blog reading session. I’ve been a long-time reader of Smart Passive Income, by Pat Flynn. On his site, Pat shares advice on how to make a passive income online. Pat’s highly successful at what he does. Pat had recently done a pod cast called SPI 012: Mind Hacks, Physical Hacks and Work Hacks for Better Productivity and Getting Things Done, where he gives some excellent advice on how to become more productive when managing multiple projects.
Pat’s advice falls into three areas: mindset, physical well-being, and work. Each of these areas needs to be in shape and in optimal condition in order to successfully manage your work. In the mindset section, Pat offers help with setting goals and discusses why setting goals is important. He also states that in order to stay productive, we need to focus on one project or task at a time. This is down-to-earth advice that is presented in an easy to understand manner. It’s applicable to all types of businesses and projects.
Next, Pat discusses the importance of taking care of our physical well-being in order to be the most productive possible. This advice is sage–for without health, it’s very difficult to do any kind of work and be productive. Pat talks about the importance of eating a healthy breakfast, drinking enough water, and more.
Pat discusses work hacks, or productivity, last in the last section of his pod cast. Here, he discusses the importance of being organized, with each project having a procedure list of it’s own, listing the steps necessary to complete the project. Keeping good track of projects allows you to keep moving forward on multiple projects, and reaching the completion of each project in a timely and successful manner. Pat also talks about the idea of using mind map software to help organize ideas. He also discusses the need to turn off distractions such as social media and email in order to make it easier to focus on the task at hand.
If you’re working multiple projects and need help with getting organized, be sure to listen to Pat’s pod cast. Pat offers helpful, interesting and insightful advice to all of his readers. Take a look around the Smart Passive Income site and you’ll gain a valuable education about how to earn passive income online and how to be the most productive and prosperous this new year.
Wishing you a very happy and prosperous 2011!
