“Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.”
- Paul J. Meyer
Today’s quote is a brief one by Paul J. Meyer – businessman, author, and one of the founders of the personal improvement industry. In it, he lays out three keys to productivity: commitment, planning and effort.
Being a Monday, I think it is best to focus for the day on planning. Planning is a discipline that is highly touted, but often under-practiced. Do you want to have a productive day? A productive week? Sit down and plan out what you need to get done and what you would like to get done. Oftentimes, you will find that giving thought to these tasks in advance will allow you to arrange your day in a way that lets you get more accomplished – with less stress!
