PROGRAM FOR PRODUCTIVITY AND TIME MANAGEMENT
THE CENTRAL ROAD TO AN INCREDIBLE LIFE


Since this was written I wrote a sizable ebook on Kindle (free app to read).  You can link to Life Value Productivity in the Books, Booklets, And Special Summaries section.  

See, at the end, The End Level to reach before advancing to the next level.  Scan the program before beginning it!


















The Complete Idiot's Guide To Getting Things Done, Jeff Davidson, MBA, CMC - Includes an extraordinary amount of wisdom to guide life, not just mechanics.  Very intelligent, easy to use. Good section on managing energy, not just time.


LEARN THE PRINCIPLES, USE THE GUIDELINE PROCEDURES!

Read the pieces under these sections of the Productivity And Time Management Contents/Links:

    Productivity Principles
    Productivity Concepts


IMPLEMENT

Write out and ascertain what you value most in life and then prioritize it.  This is your guide for what to be productive in.  Read and then use the process under Values - The Contents We Work With To create A Great Life (One That Is Beyond What Most People Believe Is Possible).

Do the Quick Implementation Of The 80/20 Rule.

Implement These Time Management And Planning Systems Right Now - Don't Delay, Try To Design Your Own, Or To Get The Perfect System - Just do these and get into gear right away!

Use the Productivity Increasers Checklist - In Priority Order.  Link into the time savers from that page.  (This is taking the cream off the top, so to speak, to get quick results.  Later, there is more learning needed, but right now we are focusing on just the basics.)

Planning and allocating one's time to what is of the most value are the next logical steps, but this process is one that takes time.  Therefore, most people start with something like The Medium Brief Workbook/Forms linked to from The Life Plan: For Constructing The Life I Love.  Read that page, so you have a good overview.


THE END PRODUCT TO REACH BEFORE ADVANCING TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Have a full, detailed standard schedule where you've built in time for every important thing in your life, with the habits and cues builtin, so that you operate powerfully and with confidence
   Be fully grounded every day
Be in excellent health (to the extent controllable), with excellent energy and sleep management.
Have a full planning system in gear, planning each day, week, month, quarter, year.
Established full priorities and assign priorities during each planning period.
Have a LifePlan set up

SHORTCUTS AND SHORTING THE PROCESS:  Note that shortcuts end up shorting one's progress.  Going to a quick solution mode, but not learning the basics, leaves one in a constantly recurring problem mode - solving the whole cause of the problem is what is always needed, if one is to have a great life.   Short sighted people do not prep adequately, meaning they don't learn enough and do a complete enough process.

THE "IN THE MOMENT" TOOLS

Stress - The Pause (a super-powerful tool)
Overwhelm - Use the formula!
Do a to do list, then assign each to a time...



He who seeks short term solutions never accomplished "the build" that is necessary for a solid platform for a great life.  Consequently, this person ends up losing great masses of time - and of potential life.
CORE, OVERVIEW

BASIC BOOKS TO READ, in this order:

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey.  (Best selling business book of all time, but it is actually about all of life...and happiness.)

The "short program" is to scan/skim and go directly to the quickest implementation items.  But...
