Are you clear on your priorities?

Most high achievers think the answer to their productivity problem is to hustle harder. But the truth is, you’ll never be as productive as you need to be—or want to be—unless you are crystal clear about your priorities.

Productivity does not mean merely working hard or working fast. It means working on things in the right order. Prioritization skills put tasks in the sequence that produces results quickly and efficiently.

Look at productivity as the result of spending the time you are given on the things that matter most. Productivity is allocating your precious resources towards activities that will have long-term positive results.

So, once you are clear about your priorities – especially as they shift – you will know where to invest your energy, where to delegate, and where to pull back or let some things go.
