Several years ago, I sat in a Starbucks coffee shop with one of my best friends, who is also my business coach. I was feeling a bit dejected over a year of business stagnation. My spirit and emotions were down. Instead of joining in my pity party and listening to me blame external factors outside my control, he pulled out his journal and we started to brainstorm new habits I can adapt that can improve my work performance strategies.

TRUE STORY: Over the next year, my performance improved and I doubled my business revenue! I thought it would be nice to pay it forward and share some of the strategies we discussed.

With clarity and focus on your productivity habits, this can be your most successful year.

Here’s to your renewed performance!
