Sometimes we find ourselves complaining about our jobs. Each day seems like the next and we feel like we are going no where. Below are five tips to help you improve work productivity to help you get the job done!

Focus On One Task At a Time
Working on too many projects at a time will only overwhelm you. Prioritize the tasks that are important against those that are urgent. Understanding the difference between the two is crucial to getting things done on time. Set deadlines and keep them; this will help you stay on track.

Time is Valuable
Don’t waste your time on distractions. The organization you work for comes first, so try your best to avoid distractions and focus on getting your job done.

Ask for Help
Sometimes we think that we can solve anything without asking for help. Asking for help, however, can give us a solution to a problem or task that seemed difficult. Seek advice from people whose opinions and values align with yours.

Be a Good Listener
This is very important! Good listening skills are key to your productivity because they help you understand what is asked of you. When you are a good listener you avoid misunderstandings and are able to get your job done efficiently.

Be Grateful
Take time each day to be thankful for what you have! Be thankful for the opportunities that are given to you and continue learning!

Sometimes setting goals is easier than accomplishing them. It can often be because of procrastination or a lack of structure in how you decide to reach a particular goal. Working backwards, however, allows you to specifically map out what you need to do to accomplish your goal. Research is an important component in this process. Research helps you define how many steps it will take to reach your goal depending on what your goal consists of. Say, for example, that you want to own a small business. What you need to do here first is to imagine yourself owning that business and then work backwards. Research the steps it takes to reach this goal and write them down. Writing things down and posting them where you can see them everyday is a great way to help motivate you to keep working towards what you want. The next thing you need to do is set a date. By setting a date you are giving yourself an ultimatum, so to speak. You are crystallizing when you want your goal to be accomplished. It does not have to be a specific date and time, but you have to narrow it down to at least a specific month or year. The value of working backwards to achieve your goals is that you are taking charge of your future while living in the now.


At some point in our lives we come to a realization where we say “everything I really need is right here.” In the beginning of my career I was poor. I came from Wyoming. One day I decided to take a risky chance so I packed my car with the few things I had and drove to California. Fast forward a few years later and today I own 3-4 businesses as well as property. It wasn’t by accident. I wanted to live the life I wanted and I took chances. I went to many business seminars in search of the secret for success, but what I found out is that I was the answer. You have to take action whether you win or lose. When you take action you automatically win because you’re taking the first step to help improve your situation. You are the one that has the power to change the direction your life is going. Most of the time fear is one of the obstacles that keeps us from doing what we really want to do. As a result, we conform and are afraid to step out of the box. I say go out there and take chances. Live the life you want to live because no one is going to do it for you. You deserve to be happy and that can only happen if you love what you do and take chances.
