13 small things to simplify your workday

One of the best things I did when I decided to simplify my life was to simplify my workday — first at my day job and later, by quitting my day job, in the work I do now as a writer and entrepreneur.
I’ve eliminated most of the routine, boring, administrative tasks with a few simple principles.
These days, I have eliminated the non-essentials, and can focus on what I truly love: creating.
Not everyone can make such drastic steps toward simplicity, but if you have some control over your workday, you can do a few small things that will simplify things greatly.


Happy New Year


I hope you are loving this time of year. I guess there are as many reasons as there are individuals of us. Maybe it’s time off work. Maybe it’s time with family. Maybe it’s just the sense of community that is generated by a shared holiday.

I think all of those apply to me. It is also a time of year I can reflect on the year just gone – what worked and what didn’t, and what to do next. I have always loved the sense of a new journal, a new slate, a clean page that comes with a new calendar.

There is such hope for better things, a better person, better times.

I have put together a page again this year of ideas, resources and inspirations for the new year and for your planning.

And finally this post brings my best wishes to you and yours for exciting new challenges in the new year and for times of peace and prosperity.



Pivotal Shopping’s Product of the week – Productivity engineering

Before I reveal the secret to becoming a consistently productive person, I have to debunk a myth about productivity. It’s a myth that’s so often repeated that many people still cling to it-even though it’s rarely if ever effective.

You see, a lot of books and information products are packed with productivity techniques . . . as if the techniques, by themselves, could transform you into a top producer. But this simply isn’t true. The fact is . . .

Techniques Alone Are Not Enough to Unlock Your Full “Productivity Potential”
Sure, techniques can help. But they’re really not addressing the underlying issues.

The trick is not to fill your head with more techniques — it’s to reprogram your mind so that work is no longer “hard” . . . but interesting and easy. So that you have fun getting things done. So that you stop causing self-induced stress . . . and begin working smoothly in the “flow” state.

The bottom line is, you must get rid of the limiting attitudes and beliefs you have stored in your subconscious mind and replace them with productive thoughts and habits.

This is why you cannot rely on traditional productivity techniques alone. You might make some progress, but you won’t experience rapid transformation.

You don’t need a new technique; you need a total “productivity makeover” to quickly transform you into the productive person you want to be. You need a shortcut.

So what’s the secret to unlocking the most productive years of your life? I’ll tell you . . .

The Secret Is to Eliminate Subconscious Blocks,
Create New Thought Patterns, and Harmonize
Your Conscious and Subconscious Mind
If all this sounds complicated, don’t worry. It’s actually far easier than you may think.
