May 19, 2014 - Are you purposely productive? Or do you find yourself doing whatever is demanded upon you without considering its relevance or importance in what you are trying to achieve? It is one thing to be busy with activities and tasks and entirely another thing to be intently focused on working diligently toward a clear destination. A clearly defined purpose and reasons for achieving your goals help you prioritize and focus. You may be feeling some frustration because, while you are quite busy and getting a lot of things done, you don't feel you are making progress as you had hoped.
Take an MM&I Moment to review your productivity related to your goals. Consider the activity and tasks you have been responsible for doing. Identify those activities that are contributing to helping you toward achieving your goals. Identify the activities or responsibilities that are distracting you from what you are trying to achieve. Now consider how these unassociated activities can be accomplished in another way, perhaps by someone else. Finally, consider whether any unassociated activities need to be done at all. Once you free yourself to be more fully engaged in the direction of your dreams, you will be amazed at how much progress will be realized.
