Have you ever found yourself procrastinating?
Have you ever put off your goals and your dreams and not been as productive as you could be?
Maybe you are taking action but it doesn’t feel like it's congruent with who you are.
I would like to take a moment to share with you, in this blog article, 3 Big Takeaways from an epic session I had with one of my speaker and leader members.
These takeaways are the core ingredients helped my member to instantly breakthrough, realign and sky-rocket their productivity.
These big takeaways and strategies are going to give you way more focus, success and achievement this year.
So, let's unpack.
Imagine driving a car towards a destination that you don't know how to get to. Imagine wanting to get there fast, but you are worried of taking the wrong turn, resulting in more money spent, more time wasted and more energy lost. It would be really challenging to continue on this journey, right?
It's the same thing with your dreams, your goals. If you don't have a clear pathway, a roadmap from someone who has travelled the journey, it will be very challenging to keep trucking forward at a high speed.
If, for example, you aren't clear about your business mission and positioning statement, if you’re not clear about exactly what you offer your customers, if you aren't clear about what you're creating and wanting to put into this world, then, of course, you're going to procrastinate, not take consistent action, and not be as productive as you could be.
So, sit down. Have a clarity session with a coach or anybody in your network who has the results you want or that you can simply brainstorm with. If you need the roadmap to becoming a confident, purposeful and inspiring speaker and leader, for example, I'd be happy to help you gain this clarity so you can gain results and success fast.
Often, it comes through having a conversation with someone; or through writing it down to get it out, saying it, understanding it verbally, and gaining feedback, that leads to greater clarity. Interact with others to help you better understand your way forward.
So, make sure that you keep seeking clarity as you grow. Stop procrastinating, and gain clarity.
As Simon Sinek explains, "start with why!"
Connect with something that inspires you, something that lights you up, something that fills you with energy and passion. Referring back to clarity, there are times that inspiration comes first before gaining greater clarity, and times that through clarity inspiration grows.
Throughout more of what you do, I invite you to tap into a feeling of inspiration. If you're starting a business, for example, selling products that you love is a key ingredient to ensuring greater sustainable success in your business.
Your why, your vision; that deeper reason that lights you up and gets you out of bed is important to tap into. In my case, I'm very passionate about helping people become emotionally intimate and emotionally fit leaders who communicate successfully and confidently. That's really something that lights me up!
So, sit down and think about what you're passionate about.

This will help you to become clear about what you want, what you like, what you don't like, and what really gives you excitement.
Let’s make sure you are excited about something!
It’s time to get more organised! This may not be your favourite takeaway and ingredient for productivity at first, however, you will actually learn to love this as it brings results and more free time into your life.
One of the ways to get more organised is to simply write down at least three goals for the day that will bring you closer to your dreams. Life is not about “busy” work, it’s about your life’s work.
Know also that when you get your "clarity" clearer and you activate your “inspiration” as fuel within you, your "organisation" is just going to increase, in general. You will want to get more organised to get more done because your clear pathway forward excites and energises you.
Did you know that if you spend 30 minutes a day toward your dream, you have gained one whole working month by the end of the year?
That’s twenty-eight days of eight hours a day working towards your mission, your dream, that passion of yours, that business, that family, that life you want to build! Does that deserve a whole amazing month of the year at least? Absolutely!
Be clear about what you would want to achieve in 12 months, 6 months and break this down into monthly goals, then spend at least 30 minutes a day towards this. Achieve at least 30 minutes a day and that's going to give you one whole working month towards that dream in the year.
So, be more organised.
Take it seriously and also be playful. Plan ahead and create habits that set up your days to be more productive for success. Celebrate your wins personally and with other people as well to build sustainable momentum. Tapping into joy and celebration as your organisation grows gets you sustainable results and will help you achieve more of what you want. So, get organised and celebrate yourself more often.
Woohoo! I'm going to leave you with clarity, inspiration and organisation, so that you enjoy a way more successful, sustainable and fulfilled rest of the year ahead!
