Productivity of Simplicity
May 14, 2018
I flew to Amarillo, Texas for a client visit a few years ago. He picked me up at the airport and said, “I hope you don’t mind riding along – I have three things to do today.”
Three things? That’s it?
The first was a bank deposit. The second was my payment. I was waiting for the third when he said, “That’s it, my friend. The rest of my day is all about you.
Yes, our project for the day included a thousand tasks. It didn’t matter. In our minds, we only had one thing left on our list.
Since then I’ve never scheduled more than three projects per day. Twenty-one per week. Ninety per month. Over one thousand per year.
So simple. So productive.
Want to get more done? Focus on three main projects a day. Stress will disappear. Productivity will skyrocket. You’ll be happier.
