Is this you? (Watch this video)
I don’t know if this is what some of your days look like (watch video if you haven’t).
I know have had days like this.
Are You Guilty?
Procrastination, we have all been guilty of it.
If you want to be successful that is a No-No. In fact I really feel that this is one of the reasons that people fail in business. Don’t get preoccupied with stupid meaningless things if you haven’t done the most important things. There is a huge difference between being busy and being productive.
“Poor people stay busy, Rich people are productive!” –Armando Cruz
Below you will find a tool that will make you more money if you use correctly. Your days will be more productive, Period.
Explanation of the Daily Productivity Planner:
It has 3 columns – Volume Builders, Money Makers, Mind Expanders.
Volume Builders are those things that increase lead generation, getting more people to learn about you and come into you business. (Examples: sending traffic to squeeze pages, leadboxes, networking with other business owners…)
Money Makers are those things that directly correlate to you making money. (Examples: creating sales scripts, sales calls, new programs, sales appointments, seminars…)
Mind Expanders are things that educate and help you learn more about communication, business development, and personal development. In other words enhance your life and your thoughts. “Rich people have libraries; poor people have big TV’s.” (Examples: going over info products, reading books, and attending seminars).
It also has 3 rows – Planned, Actual, Tasks/Reminders.
Planned – is what you plan on doing for the day in each category. There should be a minimum of 1 per category and a max of 3 per category.
Actual – This is where you actually write your notes on what you have done for the day and responses you have gotten for your priority tasks on the Planned row.
Tasks/Reminders – This row is designed for miscellaneous stuff that need to get done but should probably be outsourced. Make sure if you are going to do the Tasks/Reminders you don’t do them at the expense of the priorities above. Remember Poor people stay busy, Rich people are productive!
Greatest Teacher of All…
Here is one of my favorite quotes by Aristotle that illustrates how to be successful:
”Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” –Aristotle

PS – There is also a positive correlation that people who wake up early will tend to be more successful than people who don’t. Just, food for thought.
