Get More Done: 15 Things the Most Successful People Do Differently to Be More Productive | Making a difference | Scoop.it

1. They focus on minutes, not hours.

Average performers default to hours and half-hour blocks on their calendar. Highly successful people know there are 1,440 minutes in every day and there is nothing more valuable than time. Money can be lost and made again, but time spent can never be reclaimed.

As legendary Olympic gymnast Shannon Miller told him, "To this day, I keep a schedule that is almost minute by minute."

You must master your minutes to master your life.

 

2. They focus only on one thing.

Ultra productive people know their Most Important Task (MIT) and work on it for one to two hours each morning, without interruptions.

Tom Ziglar, CEO of Ziglar Inc., said, "Invest the first part of your day working on your number one priority that will help build your business."

What task will have the biggest impact on reaching your goal? What accomplishment will get you promoted at work?
