There are only 24 hours in each day. Some people are able to achieve incredible amounts in that time seemingly effortlessly. Others put in massive amounts of effort, but don't seem to get where they want to be.
What are those in the more productive group doing differently? How are they able to achieve so much more?
We have found those who achieve more and whose work seems to come effortlessly have mastered the 3 time management strategies below:
Do you find yourself getting sucked into other people's priorities and projects, leaving little time for your own? Do you want to absolutely crush it when it comes to your own productivity and success? Do you want more time to focus on the things you love?
With the Extreme Productivity Assessment, you'll discover where you can make remarkable improvements in your own work habits and productivity and discover more time for the things you love.
The most successful sellers are motivated, proactive, focused, and goal-oriented. Indeed, they get the most done and achieve the best results in less time.
So what makes these sellers significantly more productive? We all have the same number of hours in a day, yet some sellers achieve considerably more than others.
The answer: They're systematic. They attack each day with a similar mindset and process to drive their productivity.
After years of study, we've boiled down what these extremely productive sellers do to just 3 keys.
By applying these 3 keys, almost anyone can achieve great leaps and improvements in productivity.
Becoming more productive is about changing your habits. It's not something you do some of the time; it becomes part of the way you approach your work and get things done.
Becoming more productive can make a dramatic difference in your work, sales success, and overall happiness.
Think about it. How do you feel after a day where you've been exceptionally productive and pushed important projects forward?
You feel invigorated, motivated, engaged, and ready for the next challenge.
Compare that to an unproductive day where you couldn't focus or spent the entire day working on tasks for others. You feel drained, overwhelmed, frustrated, and irritable.
The good news is you can control how productive you are and in turn how you feel at the end of each day.
Today's sellers have never been more distracted. Emails, text messages, Slack, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, sport sites, news sites, online shopping, and more are all vying for your attention and interrupting your workflow every few minutes.
The result: Your productivity is suffering and so are your sales results.
Sellers today are more distracted than ever. Never ending emails, phone calls, texts, social media messages, and more that interrupt workflow every few minutes are killing focus and productivity. More importantly, they're killing your sales results.
In this webinar, Mike Schultz, President of RAIN Group, Director of the RAIN Group Center for Sales Research, and bestselling author of Insight Selling, shares 9 habits of extremely productive people and how you can apply these habits to achieve the greatest sales success starting now.
If you want to maximize time, you must find more of it, and choose what you do with it carefully. We all have the same 168 hours a week to work with. Some people make the most of them, others don't.
Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it; but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains.
- Henry David Thoreau
Almost everyone at some point in their career will toy with adopting some kind of time-management system. Few stick with it. The challenge is that too many time-management systems focus too deeply on the activity level—what to do first, what to do next, what the priority order is—without paying enough attention to the bigger picture. Simply viewing the world through the lens of urgent vs. important is not enough.
