Ep 8 – The Science Of Execution, Part I
Are you always procrastinating and putting off tasks until the last minute? Do you sometimes lie awake all night worried sick about the following day’s to-do list? Do you feel overwhelmed by all your commitments? If you answered yes to any of the three questions, this episode is for you.
Before anything else, I understand that there will always be days when the 24 hours in a day seem too little to accomplish all the tasks in a given day. I also understand that as a leader, it can be overwhelming to have a lot of responsibilities on your shoulder while still worrying about your team’s productivity. But here’s the thing; not being able to hit your daily target on several consecutive days can worsen your productivity due to the consistent feelings of failure. The good news is there is a solution. And like I earlier said, you only have 24 hours in a day, so you essentially can’t control time. However, there is one thing you can control: how you manage this time for maximum efficiency and minimal stress.
If you’re struggling to actually get things done, in this episode, Seth shares some productivity tips that will make it happen for you. He discusses the core ingredients to getting things done and explains why one of the most important aspects of business is execution.
