“Your Success is determined by your daily agenda.”

This is a quote I heard long ago from Leadership Expert John Maxwell when I first began working for myself as an Entrepreneur. Key phrase: “working for myself.” You see, all of us are essentially wired to get up, dress a certain way and go to work (usually for someone else).

So when we hang up that lifestyle to become an Entrepreneur or business owner to work for ourselves, we tend to work against the way we’ve been wired to perform. Perhaps we get up a bit later, dress down a bit, and often work from a home office environment. And therein lies the problem. It’s so easy to go off the rails, get lazy, and become unproductive when we are now, suddenly, our own boss.

Ever felt this way? Of course you have! We all have!

But the difference between Top Performing Entrepreneurs and everyone else is… they “notice” this, they become keenly “aware” of this, and they got to work to structure a “Success Environment” for themselves. Their productivity plan suddenly becomes more important (or as important) as their business plan. They become obsessed with productivity. I’ve studied these productivity secrets of the best Entrepreneurs, Athletes and Entertainers for over a decade and I speak on the subject quite a bit.

So in this Episode of SuccessLab Radio, I’ll be taking you to a live presentation I did from stage at a recent event. I call this talk: Productivity Triggers for Entrepreneurs. And my promise to you after you hear it: You will double your productivity so that you get more revenue producing work done in half the time.
