There's a big difference in knowing WHAT to do and knowing HOW to do it when it comes to productivity.
And until you bridge that gap your life and your work will suffer.
You've gotta know how to live a productive life...not just read about it or draw up a plan on a dry erase board or doodle napkin.
Setting goals. Developing a strategy to reach those goals. Making sure you focus on work that matters most every day...I mean do you know EXACTLY what you need to do to get the results that you want?
The only reason I ever developed the GPS Framework for performance and productivity is because someone showed me HOW to be productive. Several years ago, I hired a coach because I couldn't figure out how to juggle two executive jobs and a growing family. I knew WHAT to do but I had no clue HOW to do it.
Once my coach helped me understand and implement the strategy that I call the GPS Framework, I was able to focus on what matters and get more done in less time.
Breakthrough happened for me the moment I found a guide.. Someone who could be in my ear...a text or email or phone call away if I got stuck or felt confused.
My coach helped me take stock of what I wanted in my life and in my work, helped me devise a plan that got me where I wanted to go, and provided the accountability I needed to work that plan into my daily schedule.
In just a few years, I have built a personal productivity engine. I wake up every morning knowing what I need to do today in order to reach my goals, and I have a schedule that gives me that best possible opportunity to get where I want to go.
And the #1 thing that helped me move productivity from theory to reality has been coaching.
You heard me. I finally tapped into the power of curiosity.
I quit being the guy who had to figure things out on his own. To save a buck. Or prove I was smart or 'high-capacity' or something like that.
Now I got lucky. I found someone who was not only willing to help but actually knew what he was talking about.
And along the way, I discovered that I love helping other leaders succeed. And I'm not just content to show you WHAT I did to become productive...I'll show you HOW.
I have worked with dozens of leaders, helping each of them build a simple and sustainable productivity system that grows and evolves with them.
I'm certainly not saying that to boast. Only to demonstrate that it's possible for you to do the very same thing.
So if you feel like you can never get ahead no matter how hard you try, let me help you out. Every leader needs a guide. Let me be yours.
