Why is Productivity Important?
In today's world, we are bombarded with more information and distractions than ever before. It can be extremely difficult to know what to focus on and how to do it. More so, in a time where we can pick up our iPhones to check email, get message alerts, look at Facebook and eat in drive-thrus - we're stressed, overwhelmed and have difficulty focusing for more than eight seconds at a time!
In this course, I will give you concrete tools and tips to increase your focus, your energy and learn how to get more accomplished without stress or worry.
If You Don't Learn How to Be More Productive Now, You'll Never Achieve Your Goals
It's so easy spending our days checking emails, racing from one meeting to the next, mindlessly looking at Facebook and never getting any REAL work done. Everything feels like an emergency and takes our attention off of our true focus: setting and achieving our goals.
This course takes productivity a step further by helping you learn best practices of goal-setting and how to actually achieve your goals. If we don't know what we want in our work and lives, we'll never know how to get there.
I'll teach you how to put yourself into a state where you can achieve your goals faster than ever before, while focusing on the RIGHT things to help you achieve them.
In this video I will introduce the course and lay out the overall goals and content.
In this video I set the stage for the course by discussing why productivity is so important. It is only in learning to become more productive that we can actually reach our goals.
In this video I share some background on myself, and how I used productivity to create the business and lifestyle I want.
When I was first starting my personal coaching business, I'd spend days feeling overwhelmed and cluttered. That was time I wasted, even though I was working longer hours and feeling more exhausted than ever.
Once I figured out how to be more productive and the right things to focus on, I could spend less time doing more productive work and more time with friends and family.
In this video I introduce the concept of the masculine versus the feminine states of being.
This course originated from my class called "The Feminine Approach to Productivity".
The reason being is that most materials on productivity out there are based around the masculine approach of doing more and pushing harder.
These can be very effective methods, but I believe there needs to be a balance.
The feminine approach is putting yourself in a state of being where you attract to you that which you desire.
When you learn to balance the two, you can actually achieve your goals much faster with less effort.
In this video I cover my Top 7 Tools that I love to use for increasing productivity.
These are smart phone apps, software programs and websites that are extremely helpful.
One of my favorite tools is the Pomodoro Technique. This tool will help you to set aside focused time where you are only focusing your energy on the task at hand. When the timer goes off for pre-scheduled intervals, you're free to take a break and refresh your brain!
Another great tool out there is Drop Task - which is essentially a visual organizer and to-do list.
Attached is all the information you need to know about the 7 tools!

In this video we're moving onto Goal Setting!
Productivity means nothing if we don't have goals guiding us to where we wish to go.
Once you understand how to set goals, then you'll know what to focus your time and energy on.
Download this to your computer or print it out for a refresher on my top goal-setting tips!
This is the process that I take all of my clients through in setting goals.
The key is to look at the four different areas of your life:
Then to take a snapshot of where you're currently at in each of those areas of your life, where you desire to be, and what's blocking your progress from moving forward.
I work with my clients a lot around what is blocking them from achieving their desires. For a free consultation sign up here: http://alexismeads.com/consultation/
This is a Weekly Planning Workbook, credit to Scott Dinsmore of Live Your Legend.
I recommend that you set aside a specific time each week to use this planning workbook.
Brew your favorite pot of tea, put on some music and work through it!
It will help you to celebrate your achievements, review your past week and set a schedule for your coming week.
This is a great template for creating your to-do list.
Here's the idea:
On the left hand side right the "bigger things" - things that you want to happen or want to get done but aren't quite sure how they're going to happen.
On the right hand side: Right down all your tasks and to-dos that you know how to get done.
Then, as you cross things off of the right-hand column, you work towards manifesting the things in the left-hand column.
This is a sheet that I like to fill out each day.
I recommend downloading this and saving it to your computer.
It will help you to set your goals so you know what tasks will help you work towards achieving your goals.
Then you'll write out the tasks, follow-ups and people you're waiting on for a response.
