0:00 – 0:22 Introduction

Hi, It’s Adrian Law here from The Academy of Positive Change. Today’s message is out of this world, quite literally. I’ve also got some examples and tools to give you to make you more productive in your business so stay tuned.

0:23 – 0:56 Curiosity in Space

curiosityWhen I said today’s message is out of this world, I meant I wasn’t kidding. I was fortunate enough as a Qantas  platinum flight frequent flyer, to meet Curiosity the other day. This is the robot that is in space. Qantas is using it for its latest marketing campaign. I don’t know if you know  much about Curiosity but it’s number one goal in space is to find life. There are lots of other things that it does like constantly taking photo’s and  does all sort of things, but its number one goal is to find life. It’s really simple.

0:57 – 1:07 Keep Your Systems and Business Simple

The first message today is to make your business and processes simple so others can easily follow them. Now back to Curiosity, why would Qantas want Curiosity in front of that marketing campaign?

1:08 – 1:24  How are you Innovating?

The way I look at is that he’s firstly very innovative. That begs the question ‘how you are being innovative in your business?’ What is it that could simplify? What are you doing that your competitors aren’t? Also, what could you do that you’ve seen other organizations do that you think is a really good idea? I like to learn from how well Apple does things.

1:25 – 1:38 Use Cutting Edge Technology

The other thing that I thought of is the technology that is used with Curiosity is cutting edge, and to be successful in your business you also need cutting edge technology. It doesn’t need to cost you thousands of dollars but it needs to achieve your goal.

1:39 – 2:28 Use What Works With You

You might have some software or some apps on your phone. For example they might be productivity tools that can help you. Something like Asana or something similar that can even be shared amongst a team if you have one. One of the things that I am very big on and it could be very valuable to you, is use what processes work for you. The reason for this is sometimes and I’ve even felt this myself, is that some of the tools that I need to go on to my phone for or access the software on the computer, I need to actually search for it. Whereas if you sometimes go back to the good old bit of paper, some people prefer this. I am a writer and like to see things in front of me. As you can see, this says ‘Things to do today.’ I just want to write a list of things that need to be done today. This is when I am at the office, often I’ll use software if I’m away but either way it is very simple and I just tick them off as I go.

2:29 – 3:06 List Your MUST do’s For Today

The real key here and I hope you like this and that it benefits you. Notice that I mentioned ‘things to do today.’ Some of the to do lists that I see are so long. They can be huge and very overwhelming. Whereas what I do on this paper, as I mentioned, is list the things to do today. These are the musts, not ‘the shoulds.’ This is what I commit to doing TODAY. That way I am very productive. I move very quickly towards my goals. I feel great at the end of the day because I feel like I’ve achieved.

3:07 – 3:46 Taking ___ ______ Overcomes Procrastination
One of my valued clients recently said to me., and I love this. He said that he realized that if he sits down even for 5 minutes, the things on his list for the day don’t get done. He is a small business owner and wants to be productive, but he knows that if he stops so does everything else. To keep the momentum you need to take action. He realised that it doesn’t matter what action it is, it is just doing ‘stuff’ because when you do, your energy is up. You feel more productive. You feel like doing it compared to lying down  on the sofa or something similar when you get home. You feel tired. You can’t be bothered to do the things you know you want to do to be productive and then you can often regret it afterwards.

3:47 – 4:03 Changing A Couple of Things

Remember, it is only changing a couple of things. I wrote the book on it. Simple steps for you to be as successful as you want to be. There is no magic bullet but it’s the little things that help you get there.

4:04 – 4:16 Having the Right Contacts and Support

Having said that, it is really important that you have the right connections, the right contacts with the knowledge and support to be able to help you get to that next level.

4:17 – 4:38 It’s Vital to Know What You Do and Don’t Need

I talked about technology before. Knowing what need and what you don’t need to simplify and automate your own business or circumstances is vital. I see a lot of people wasting a lot of money on technology that they don’t need. The technology by itself is not going to make their life super great all of the sudden, if it’s not now. It’s using the technology to achieve your goal that matters.

4:39 – 5:33 How to Live The Life That You Truly Want to Live

If you do these things and have those things you will find life not on Mars (like Curiosity’s goal) but with the life that you truly want to live. I know that this is possible for you, it really is. To find out whether we can help you get to where you want to go quickly or not, simply click on the link below. Let us know a little about your circumstances and maybe some of the challenges that you have currently got.
