Do You Know What You Need to Be Productive?
I went through that journey! Do you need help organizing your office/life? I can provide systems and programs to help you attain clarity. Do you procrastinate? I can help you move past your blocks – conscious and subconscious. Are you seeking balance in your life? Do you even know where you need help? Where to begin?
Relax, I can provide you with the answers you seek!
I offer programs to answer all of your questions. But, I need to know you in order to dig deeper and discover what blocks you may not even be aware of.
I would like to invite you to take my Personality Profiler Questionnaire – Part One and Two for Free. It indicates how aware you are of your own emotions and whether you can identify and communicate them effectively to others. It also looks at how you handle others’ emotions.
You might be in for a surprise! You may find out something about yourself you would have never expected!

Track your Time
This will show you what is happening to your time. This process will make you aware of “time-wasters”.
This “time journal” will identify how you are spending your time. How can you learn how to better manage your life if you don’t look at what is happening in it?
Create a time chart for one week. Break it down into 24 hour periods. Then break it down further. What is “do-able”? Morning and afternoon? Hourly intervals? ½ hour intervals? Whatever you are comfortable with and will maintain.
– Identify Goals
During the week that you are charting time, you also need to re-evaluate your priorities. We all have certain priorities that we are committed to (e.g. weekly meetings, client obligations) – also list what you aren’t currently finding time for. List what you would do “if only you had time”. Write down anything and everything. These will probably be short-term goals. You also need to think ahead. First, 5 – 8 years ahead.
This will take into account what your dreams are. Then, 2 years ahead to see what changes you can make on the way to achieving these goals. What do you need to do first?
– 2 Year Goals
Record what you would like to be doing in two years. If your long-range goal requires advanced education for example, then write down what you should be doing during the next one or two years in order to accomplish this. Research may be required before you can move ahead with a goal. If you don’t know the steps required in order to meet your goal, you will need time to investigate this.
– 5 to 8 Year Goals
Long term goals = dream page. What would you like to be doing 5 – 8 years from now? Take several days to consider what you want your future to hold, then settle on 1 or 2 that you really want to focus on e.g. working in a different field, retiring. Be specific regarding your goals. Do you want to learn another language? Do you want to speak like a native or just enough to get by?
The more specific you are, the easier it will be to act on your goals.
People who are successful share a common secret. They know that to get ahead, they must plan, set priorities and always follow through. In the process, they develop systems that work for them. Their reward? Peace of mind and extra time – no more looking for that missing file folder, office supplies or printer ink cartridge.
Recent studies show that 80% of the cost to maintain paper records is in the personnel time required to retrieve and file documents in the filing system.
Actually, the average individual spends 150 hours each year looking for misplaced information.
That’s nearly four work weeks!!!
