Are you tired of struggling in your life or your business? You lack two things:
Productivity and Commitment
Commitment is the willingness to be consistent and eliminate distractions. That is one of the core principles to being more like “The Productivity Guy” —Alex Mandoassian, creator of Marketing Online.
How can you be more committed than you already are? Well, chances are that you feel like you would live and die for your business but, where you are making the mistake (most likely) is that you are confusing passion for commitment.
“Commitment is the wood, passion is the fire…
And, you cannot have the fire until you stack the wood.” – Alex Mandossian

Most Serial Entrepreneurs would say “I’m busy, therefore I am working.” Being busy is not productivity, it often leads to failure and the results stem from a lack of productivity.
Productivity is about getting the maximum results in minimum time.
That’s it. There is no bigger secret behind the reality of what it take to be more productive.
If you can get more done in less time, you will be productive.
You can become the mother or father that you want to be, the husband or wife that you genuinely know that you are and you can serve the relationships in your life better, faster and easier… Because of productivity!
Imagine what your day would be like if you wake up with the systems and the plans for your day already in place?
Wouldn’t you feel better knowing right from the moment that you open your eyes that you already have your day planned out? ABSOLUTELY, that is the difference between a serial entrepreneur and a successful one.
Productivity Starts with Planning
The last thing that you should do at the end of your work day or your work evening is to plan out your next day.
Just like a schedule for a college student.
You need to know where you will be through each hour and half hour in your day.
Map out your schedule by planning the entire day for yourself and write it down.
From the moment that you wake up to the last hour that you work, and include anything you need to do outside of the office that day.
Write them down. Write and keep your schedule. Without it you will fail!
Any average day for “The Productivity Guy” was planned the night before.
Any day that the Productivity Guy wakes up for was planned the day before.
He knows that as soon as his eyes open the plan he had put in place the night before will begin.
The Productivity Guy
The Productivity Guy wakes up, brushes his teeth and mediates for 15 minutes.
He works out at the gym for one hour.
Then he takes a shower and heads downstairs to have a glass of water and some breakfast. During breakfast he watches a Ted Talk on his laptop and then off to Peet’s Coffee he goes.
During his commute he listens to a self help audio training.
When he gets to the coffee shop he orders his “double wet cappuccino” and enjoys it with no distractions.
Next he opens his laptop and begins working on the first planned project that needs to be address.
He does not judge the work or allow emails, voicemail or anything else to be a distraction. Head down The Productivity Guy completes the first hour of work and then he is ready to head over to the office.
The rest of his day also stays consistent and the reason is, he is committed to sticking to the schedule that he keeps.
There is no reason to allow himself not to keep the schedule, because without commitment there is no fire to burn. Fire can only come after the wood is stacked and commitment is the wood…
Imagine yourself in a desert, cold and freezing from the desert air blowing and blowing, you want to have a fire but you can’t… Because without wood, there is no fire to burn.
Eliminate Distractions To Be Productive
The best way for you to eliminate distractions is to stop leaning in every time some else has an urgent problem.
Their urgent problems are no your urgent problems.
Their catastrophes are not your concern, unless you make them your concern.
Eliminate the distractions and stick to your pre-planned schedule. Just like a student in college, you already know when your classes are and when you need to be present in class.
You know when you have set aside 1-2 hours in your day or your evening to work on the class work assigned.
Running your business is the same way, or it can be… If you make it so.
Pre-planning is the start to being more productive and more committed to getting more results: FASTER, BETTER and EASIER!
Go Now and Plan Your Day for tomorrow.
Write it down, stick to it and get ready to be as productive tomorrow as the Productivity Guy!
