How to Increase Your Personal Productivity


Most people are struggling to get important things done. Often times we become burdened by the loads of information we receive. So, how do the top performers in productivity get things done?

It’s pretty simple actually…

Top performers ask themselves, “what is the next important action?”

That’s it!

According to Pareto’s principle, 80% of your results come from 20% of your actions. You must constantly take action and think of the next important or next intelligent action to take. By doing this you have already accomplished 80% of your task.

The top 1% of people in this world ask this question on an hourly basis. Be apart of the top 1% by implementing this strategy into your daily life and business.

What is the number one question top performers ask that help them to get the right things done much faster than others? Those who know this simple information are automatically productive on their business or professional life. Those who haven’t gained this perspective are constantly struggling to do things but are often overwhelmed by the massive information overload and get nothing done.

The mindset I would like you embrace for this topic is to build an action based thinking. In other words, start thinking in actions.

What do I mean by that? Here is the metaphor for this. Imagine the light in your kitchen. It is spreading light to the entire kitchen that enable you to see the dozens of things in your kitchen at the same time. Ideas are like that. It is spread out in seven different directions. Now imagine a laser beam. It is focused to a very small diameter and it can even pierce even through steel. That is action based thinking.

So how do I adapt an action based thinking? You need to train your mind to think in terms of actions. Even better, train your brain to focus only on the most intelligent actions.

According to Pareto’s principle or 80-20 rule, 80% of your results comes from 20% of your action. So you might as well focus only on those few actions that will give you the best outcome and experience.

The most efficient way to do this is to build a habit of asking “What is the next intelligent action?” throughout your day. As you start your day or when you are in a meeting or when you are planning a project or a vacation, ask the same question.

If you are an advanced student, you must be thinking ‘I always ask the question “What is the next action?” How is this different than asking “What is the next intelligent action?” Of all the actions that you could take, 80% of your results will come from 20% of your intelligent actions. Massive actions does not mean massive results. If you are running fast towards north looking for a sunset you will not see it nor will you see a sunrise looking to east. You need to do the intelligent action of knowing your direction first.

Or you must be wondering what to do if there is no foreseeable action for this project. If there is no foreseeable action, this project should not take your mental energy at all. It must be out of your creative space, meaning you should forget about it for now.

When you go for the next meeting where people talk about great ideas and are ready to leave the room, make sure that you ask the question, what is the next intelligent OR important action on this?

Today we talked about the number one question that the top 1% of people in the world ask almost on a hourly basis. It is “What is the next intelligent action on this outcome or project?”
