People tend to waste more time than they should when conducting their Internet home business activities, but I think that most people would like to learn to be more efficient and would benefit from a few tips on how to improve productivity.

I know from personal experience how easy it is to get sidetracked or distracted by non-essential activities, and how hard it can be to stay focused and on task. Sometimes, we just need to get a better grasp of the principles involved in becoming more efficient.

In my efforts to promote and sell products from Brian Tracy International, I end up purchasing some of the resources, both for research purposes and for my own personal benefit. Recently, I bought Brian’s book, Reinvention (with bonuses).

Here are four highlights from the section in the book that covers the Law of Forced Efficiency. …

This is just one small section in the chapter titled, How Do You Get the Most out of Yourself? Brian explains each of these points in more detail in the book, but here is an overview. As you will see, the focus is on how to improve productivity.

Brian opens the section by explaining the Law of Forced Efficiency, which states that there is never enough time to do everything, but there is always enough time to do the most important things.

How to Improve ProductivityHe notes that when you are under pressure, you are forced to become efficient. People who do not have the discipline to get tasks done ahead of a deadline often proclaim that “they work best under pressure,” but Brian says that they say that only to justify their poor time management skills.

He warns that when you operate under pressure, it is much more stressful and you tend to make more mistakes that often result in having to redo the task. He provides four questions that you can ask to increase your efficiency and productivity:

1. “What are my highest value-added tasks?”

In part, Brian asks, “What is it that you do that contributes the greatest value to your work and your life?” He says that you must be absolutely clear about the answer to this question and you must “work on these high-value activities all the time.”

2. “Why am I on the payroll?”

What have you been hired to do? Or, as a self-employed home business marketer, what things do you do that produce the greatest results and success for your business? Brian says, “Whatever the answer to this question, these are the activities you need to focus on all day long.”

3. “What can I and only I do that, if done well, can make a real difference?”

Brian explains that at any given time, there is only one answer to this question. “This is the sort of task that, if you don’t do it, it doesn’t get done,” says Brian. But if you do it and you do it well, it can make a major difference. “Whatever it is, you should be working on it above all else.”

4. “What is the most valuable use of my time, right now?”

Whatever your answer is to this one, that is what you should be doing at any given moment.

Those are the highlights from the key points in Brian’s section on practicing the Law of Forced Efficiency. As I mentioned earlier, he provides more detail for each of these in the book. Also, when you consider these points in the context of the entire chapter, they have far greater meaning and relevance. Take a minute to check out the information page for Reinvention (with bonuses).

You can learn how to improve productivity by applying these tips and I encourage you to make it a priority to do so. Not only will you become much more efficient and successful, but you will also experience a greater sense of purpose and control in your life and in your business.
