329. ProduKtive System (Part 4) – Prioritize Actions

Dec 13, 2021 | 0 comments

This is part four of a six-part series diving into the ProduKtive System, our proven method for implementing the principles of The ONE Thing into your life. While these principles are surprisingly simple to understand, they can be challenging to put into practice. Today we focus on how you can prioritize things so that you can stay on track to hit your daily, monthly, and yearly goals.

It might seem like merely knowing what you should be doing is enough, we know that’s never the case. People struggle to bridge the gap between their yearly plan and what they need to accomplish this week. They are often reactive when they need to be proactive and they struggle to say no to the things that don’t matter as much. 

In this episode, we unravel each of these ideas so that you can learn how to overcome them and achieve greater results in less time.

If you would like help implementing this in your own life in less time and with less stress, visit the1thing.com. As an individual you can learn more about our Living Your ONE Thing training membership, and if you are a leader wanting to facilitate creating this plan in your organization or team, request a consultation.

Getting things done is a challenge everyone struggles with.

One way to tackle this is to make sure you have the right tools for you and your computer. That means having the right apps. The problem is not all apps do what they promise.
