Writing up a long todo list every day has nothing to do with productivity. Movement towards your goals and dreams does not equal achievement… yet! Focus on outcomes instead of activities. It takes effort to get from where you are today to where you want to be tomorrow. Are you ready to get to work?

Setting goals is not always easy. You get stuck sometimes in a career, being more or less comfortable with the status quo. Instead of repeating things you’ve been doing for the last few years, always ask yourself an important question: what’s next?

In setting goals for yourself, and your career, list all the goals and the reasons why you want to accomplish those goals – and then tick them off one by one as you complete them.

The top productivity “trick” I’ve learned from Tony Robbins is to get absolutely clear on the following:

  • WHAT do you want? (how much – be specific – “consistent cashflow” is not good enough – 100$ could be consistent.
  • WHY do you want it? Ask 5 times to get to the root cause of WHY you REALLY want it.
  • what is the PLAN to achieve that? (plan to focus) – Be consistent, stick to the plan.

If you don’t have a clear why your goals are simply targets, without having the fuel to get there. Simply having a target is not good enough. Getting to your goals will take a lot of effort. Without knowing why you’re doing something you will be lacking the motivation you need to where you want to be.

You also need to be congruent with your goals. So many people say they want to travel and hold on to unrealistic ideas as to what that would take. They think it’s too expensive, and for that reason never go out to find answers and build a plan. If you want to accomplish something new you’ll have to set priorities to do just that. You can join some courses and programs to get the help you need to be on your way. For example, if you want to write a book you can decide to spend a lot of time and money figuring out how to do it all by yourself, or you can get the help you need by joining a write course like my Write a Book in a Week program to help you become a published author.

And don’t forget: change takes time. Many people give up when they’re so close to success. They think that whatever they’re doing isn’t working, but in reality they just haven’t been doing it long enough. Live your life with a philosophy – there are so many resources on losing weight, quitting smoking, photography, writing a book – and yet there’s fewer and fewer people following a plan. It takes time. You have to set the priorities and spend your time in alignment with your goals. You’ll see more changes over time and, over time, make less and less mistakes.

Now, it’s time to put pen to paper. What’s your vision? If you lived an all-star life what would that look like? Commit to create a massive action plan based on your vision – only after getting clear on the what and the why you can move on to the how.
