Productivity is not measured by how busy I am, or how quickly I work. Productivity is measured by what I have accomplished. The best way to do this, is to focus on one task for completion.

I cannot use the same one dollar on two items, and similarly, I cannot use the same second on two tasks. If I value my time, then concentrate on one task to use less time on that task. Once completed, move on to the second task. If I feel I need to do the other task before I do the current one I am working on, then maybe the other task requires priority and do that task first and then come back to the task that I am currently working on. I do not want to fool myself, that doing two tasks at the same time, that I am actually doing two tasks at the same time.

If I am going for a walk and want to skip rope, does not make sense to walk and skip rope at the same time. Each task has a purpose, and I will prioritize my tasks and do the one that has the highest priority. The simplest way that I can accomplish this, is to create three goals and prioritize those three goals, and then work with the highest priority first. Once completed, work on number two as the number one on the list and add another to be number three.

I have been doing things in my life haphazardly and believe I have to change the system that I have been using. After all, “If I keep doing what I have been doing, I will keep getting what I have been getting.”

Schedule the day like my life depended on the schedule.
Monday through Friday, I look at my calendar to see what meeting I have to attend. I realized, I do not have a life schedule. Why not schedule my life like I schedule work. As the saying goes, “What is not scheduled, will not get done.”

I will start to #blog daily to track my daily activities on how I study and how I am using my time. In other words, making myself accountable for my successes and failures.

There comes a time when I feel sick and tired of being sick and tired. What must I do to change my life that would fix the things that I am doing wrong? What are the mistakes that I do daily, that I must fix for my life to be better? I have to figure this out, otherwise, “nothing changes if nothing changes.” What actions or in actions must I do? What are the right things that I must do and what wrong that I must avoid? I guess these are the million questions of life, that I find the answers to as I travel in the journey of life.

The magic sauce of life
I must challenge myself daily to be one percent better. There is no other way, than to do. To get experience and make the necessary mistakes to become better and face the necessary challenges. This is the only way. I cannot gain muscles viewing videos, reading articles. I have to take action! There lies the magic sauce of life.
