Here are the top 3 Reasons to become more Productive.

- You’ll Earn more with less time.
- You’ll Get more done in 3 months than your peer in 1 year
We all want productivity. The question is, how do you sustain being productive all the time?
And here are three ways to achieve this.
Avoid Toxic Customers & Clients
If you come across a client or prospect who is a Sociopath or Narcissist, you need to subjugate your Ego and walk away from the deal.
Such people often remind you of their high-net-worth status. Sometimes they enjoy baiting you to do stuff for them for free by mentioning his extensive network with many high-value/ income individuals. Others would portray that they can connect you to more wealth, sales, and business if you serve them.
Based on Hailey Sharfir (LPCS, LCAS, CCS) and Benjamin Troy (MD) research (Nov 2021), there are 7 top signs of a sociopath or Narcissist.
- Using intelligence, charm, or charisma to manipulate you and others.
- Exaggerated achievements, talents, and self-importance
- Hunger for power and dominance over you
- Apply manipulative and deceptive behaviour on you
- Possess a ruthless & litigious personality
- Broken moral compass with a limited conscience
- Fragile Ego, easily irritated, and a vengeful heart.
Such individuals have an unresolved dark side within them that you will never win when dealing with them.
Even if you won the battle, you lost the war.
Going head-to-head with these sociopaths, you will:
- Lose precious time (the most precious asset you have)
- Waste your creative thinking over their problems and issues.
- Experience a roller coaster emotional state (aka. Their ongoing bait and switch behaviour)
- Miss out on other income opportunities
- Lose money, resources, and time.
- Not have peace of mind and inner peace.
Is it worth it?
Such a toxic personality will drain your time, resources, and zest in Life.
Customers (or clients) who portray these signs may have mental health issues similar to bipolar, narcissistic, or borderline personality disorders.
If you are a person who constantly thrives to become a better version of yourself with goals and missions in Life, stay away from these two personalities as far as you can, even if they offer you a deal of a lifetime.
Sleep At The Right Time
You can’t be productive if you have brain fog.
The best time to sleep is before 10pm, and the best time to wake up is at 6pm or anytime your body feels recharged.
Less than 6 hours of sleep can result in memory loss, cognitive and thinking ability decline, caustic mood swings, and irrational thoughts.
If you’re running a business, you are probably aware of the effects lack of sleep has on your performance and ability to concentrate.
So, how much sleep is enough?
According to a study on sleep and recovery by John Underwood, Director of Life of an Athlete-Human Performance Project, the human body undergoes a tremendous period of physical restoration between the hours of 10:00 pm and 2:00 am. On the other hand, the human mind and body undergo a period of restoration every night, usually between 2:00 am and 6:00 am.
Don’t sleep for the sake of sleeping.
Sleeping at 1:00 am and clocking an 8 hours duration may not have the same energising effect when you sleep at 9 pm and wake up at 5:00 am to 6:00 am. The key always lies in the quality of your sleep, not the quantity.
Take the time to get quality sleep. Let your body wind down from the day’s mental, emotional, and physical activities. Recharge your energy, vigour, and motivation through sleep and wake up with a purpose.
Don’t Skip The Greens!
Wait, what has food got to do with being productive?
Too much meat produces toxins in your body and makes you sluggish and tired. (Source: Geelong medical group), because it is more challenging for your body to process meat than vegetables. As a result, your body diverts more energy to your digestive system to churn that protein-textured meat, thus making you feel lethargic and causing you a lack of drive to do anything productive.
You can do more with a healthy body with greens, vegetables, and a meat-free diet.
Bear in mind that a healthy body houses a healthy mind.
We recommend having no-meat meals at least twice every week as research shows too much meat can make one feel foggy and sleepy. (Deane Alban, BA)
But overall, a balanced omnivorous diet can help normalise your body chemistry, eradicate toxins, and give you the Gung-Ho stamina to succeed in your Life & Business.
