How to Kick Ass at Work and Be the Most Productive Person You Know

Do you want to triumph in your work and achieve jaw-dropping results?

Are you ready to vanquish what is stealing your time and energy?

Is it time to stop struggling, grow a backbone, and reach mind-blowing levels of productivity?

Read on to find out what prolific superstars do every day to unleash their wondrous success.

  1. Set Audacious Goals

Don’t just set audacious goals, write them down. Refer to the goals every morning. Research someone who has achieved what you desire and use their path as a guide. Visualize the steps and actions you need to take to get to where you want to go. Big and brave goals will release energy. Most importantly go and ACT towards achieving the goals every day.

  1. Join the 5 am Club

Some of the healthiest and most successful people on the planet wake up early every morning. Wake up at five, and you’re earning yourself two to three hours to invest in exercise, self-care, learning, and working without distraction or interruptions.

Start getting up every morning at five to start your day. Does this sound impossible? Prime your mind at night before you fall asleep. Promise yourself that the second you open your eyes, you will count to three and jump out of bed. It sounds stupid. It will work.

Immediately engage in five minutes of exercise. The exercise will wake you up better than a cup of coffee and clear the fog from your brain.

  1. Start Your Day with Yoga

You may know that yoga has a long list of benefits for your health. Did you know that Yoga will improve your productivity too?

Commit to starting your day each morning with yoga, and you will be training your mind to focus. Focusing on the breath and tuning in to the observer within you will pull your attention away from mindless thought loops and being emotionally reactive.

Calming your mind, remaining the balanced observer of your emotions instead of getting caught up in their spiral, and breath work will train you to retain focus. You won’t just get more productive. You’ll start devoting your best energy to the work that matters the most.

  1. GO! Immediate Action

Stop thinking and start acting. Count the three and act. Speak out your innovative idea at the meeting. Create a new video. Call up the potential client. Action will create a feedback loop that will positively fuel more activity. You don’t get work done by thinking about the possibilities.

  1. Stay Active All Day

The ultimate productivity tool in the world is exercise. So do some early morning yoga at five am, then go for a walk after lunch, and engage in aerobic or strengthening exercise in the evening.

Stand up at least once every ninety minutes to move. Go outside, climb some stairs, do some desk yoga, or get old school and do twenty jumping jacks.

The movement will boost your energy, sharpen your focus, and enable you to sit down to work again refreshed.

  1. You Best Physical Fitness

Strive towards reaching the best physical fitness of your life to watch your energy explode. You may think that exercise will exhaust you and decrease the power you have for your work.

The opposite is true. As unbelievable as it may sound, exercise will supercharge you with energy, and reaching your best physical fitness level will skyrocket your ability to kick ass at work.

  1. Iron Routines

What do Thomas Edison, Stephen King, and John Grisham have in common? They are all successful in their careers and masters of productivity, and they follow strict routines. Their routine regulates everything from when they get up in the morning, to when they work, exercise, and relax. Create a routine and stick to it consistently to maximize your mastery and productivity.

  1. Be a Minimalist

Dirt and clutter suck the energy out of a room and infringe on your productivity and creativity. Declutter your office, home, car, schedule, and relationships. Simplify and streamline. Do you need all those apps on your phone? Is your productivity app saving you time, or wasting it? Delete it!

Go for clean, empty spaces to free your brain to produce its most brilliant work in record time.

  1. Be Consistent

Invest time every day in working on the medium and long-term projects that are most critical to the success of your career or business. Even ten minutes a day adds up to over an hour each week. Don’t underestimate the power of showing up and investing the time every single day.

  1. Eat That Frog

Set a priority at the close of every workday for the next day. Get your most critical work done before lunch the next day.
