You don't need to be in the Matrix to free your mind.

Becoming productive starts with freeing your mind. This lecture is not about meditation, it’s about getting everything that you consider open or undone in your life off of your mind and in to a system that helps you deal with it.

Whats on you mind?

I have read more productivity books, attended more seminars and watched more videos about productivity than I care to remember. And the one thing that stands out as missing from all of these was the process used by the person teaching about productivity. In this lecture I make no such mistake and walk you through how I use Evernote to get everything out of my head, organised and actioned.

Getting Started With Time Management
7 Lectures 51:41

If you don't think that you need to manage your time then think again. Time management is one of the key building blocks of productivity to The Productive Entrepreneur.

And it's not just about managing your time at work either. The Productive Entrepreneur understands that to get more done at work means finding a balance between work and personal time.

What is time?

Time management is dead long live time management.

Everyone of us is faced with the new reality of dealing with a never ending stream of inputs and trying to balance work with having a life.

Ask yourself this, how many email accounts do you have? Social media accounts? Instant messaging accounts?

In the past the only things that were competing for our attention were our desk phones, the daily post and random interruptions from colleagues. Sorting items into an order, prioritising them and then moving them to a relevant list was easily done. Once your lists were made you could then get on with your to-dos and the days real work.

In this lecture I will outline some of the time management skills that I use on a daily and weekly basis to help keep me moving forward.

Time Management

At some stage in life everything must evolve if it is to survive. The age old to-do list is no different. In this lecture we explore a new way to mange and track your tasks.

The to-do list evolution

Recover When Plans Fail

Staying motivated is key to being productive. The ability to keep going when you don’t want to or think you can’t is a trait all productive entrepreneurs share
Stay Motivated

Confidence comes mostly with experience. Here are some tips to help you build yours.
Build Self Confidence

There is no point in committing to something and then not following through with it. The only that accomplishes is having it weigh on your mind along with any other unkept commitments that you might have. Eventually they’ll just clog your mind.

If you’ve followed in the instructions in the last lecture then hopefully your days of making excuses have been greatly reduced. If you still need a little help then this lecture will show you how to stop making excuses.
Stop Making Excuses

There is no point in working yourself to the bone and collapsing at the end of all your hard work. Don’t forget why you are working so hard. Rest is a key part to staying productive but most people think that when they’re not working they’re not working. Who is getting more done, the person who has just had 8 hours sleep, a good breakfast and maybe a brief morning workout or the girl who has pulled an all nighter to meet her deadline?

The old saying take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves is not just for money. If you are letting the little things in your life build up eventually they are going to coming crashing onto your desk as one very big thing.
