There are times that we feel unproductive. How do you combat that feeling? Join Donald and Andres as they talk about the lack of productivity and how to overcome it. 

What unproductivity looks like

  • Andres has subscribed to many methods and ways to become productive. Entrepreneur on Fire’s John Lee Dumas is one of the podcasts he listens to. There’s also the Freedom Mastery Journal where you write down four things that you want to accomplish in a day. 
  • Often, though, it’s difficult for many to finish their list of tasks to do for the day. 
  • The most productive times are in the early mornings or late at night. But always pushing out your workday to late at night isn’t healthy. It eventually leads to burn out. 
  • Feeling unproductive doesn’t necessarily mean that you didn’t get any work done in a day. It may also mean that you weren’t able to do what you intended to do because you were side-tracked with other tasks. 
  • For Andres, sometimes the inspiration for doing his listed tasks happens at the last minute. 
  • Andres is now trying a new exercise where he prepares for his tasks beforehand. He also considers the productivity tools he is using. 
  • The TSE Mastermind has been helpful for Andres as it provided accountability which then equates to goals reached. 
  • Sometimes, Andres wants to get things done and loses sight of other things. 
  • It is important to learn how to allocate and delegate tasks. 
  • It is not easy to do the hard things but they’re the ones that are going to be the critical pieces moving forward. 
  • Oftentimes, when you have many things to do, you tell yourself that you are most productive at the last minute and that you work better under pressure. 
  • Write down the things you need to do and scale the tasks in levels of importance.
