Take the Thirty-Day Online Productivity Challenge!

Monday, June 1 through Tuesday, June 30, 2020
On demand daily

Are you prepared to have a productive day? Do you reduce time-wasters? Are you organized around your priorities? Do you maintain personal discipline? Do you manage your stress levels? Are you able to concentrate on critical tasks? Do you control your time effectively? How do you manage the flow of information? Do you have a high level of personal vitality? Are your personal and work lives in equilibrium?

Each day in June, we will focus on one aspect of powerful personal productivity. First, you’ll watch a 3- to 5-minute video of Laura LIVE in studio (not PowerPoint). Next, you’ll complete that day’s accompanying worksheet. By the end of 30 days, you’ll have created a complete personal action plan!

There is no set schedule to view each daily video – you can login to watch whenever it’s convenient. You will also receive the videos and workbooks for your reference, so you can watch them over and over. As a bonus, Laura will be your private coach for 30 days! You will be able to send her unlimited questions via email for individual help and input.

To get an idea of how this course will help you, take this assessment to discover your biggest productivity challenges.

What topics will be covered?

  1. GOALS. If true wealth is discretionary time, then true productivity begins with your goals in mind. What are you trying to accomplish through your daily activities? You’ll learn how to set personal and team goals in this video.
  2. PLANNING. Regularly reviewing your objectives is the most important part of “time management.” You don’t have time NOT to plan! Yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily reviews will keep you on course in achieving your goals and objectives. In this video, you’ll learn how to do it.
  3. PRIORITIZING. The term ‘triage’ is borrowed from the medical field, where personnel assign levels of care based on degrees of patient urgency. How are you triaging the myriad tasks, projects, and priorities in your office? Your staff will have a common language to describe priorities after this video.
  4. COMMITMENT. In business, Return on Investment, or ROI, is defined as the profit realized from a resource, minus the original and ongoing investment. It’s no different with Personal ROI, which is the investment potential that you offer to your organization through the best use of your time. Which tasks offer a high PROI to your boss, team, and office?
  5. INEFFICIENCIES. Never assume the way you do things currently is the best possible way to do them; in fact, it’s probably not. There’s almost always a better way and a more efficient process. Learn the seven ways you can evaluate efficiency at work.
  6. MEETINGS. Meetings, meetings, meetings! Today’s managers and professionals spend so much time attending them, you might need some ideas on how to better plan and run them. You’ll learn how in this video and agree on some ground rules.
  7. C-O-R-E. Are you frustrated by your time management system? Confused about when to use paper, your phone, your laptop, your tablet, or your desktop? It’s no wonder—effective time management involves four separate functions, what I call the C-O-R-E Method, which you’ll learn about in this video.
  8. 6D SYSTEM. Do you process information quickly or let it pile up? Do you have piles of paper on your desk and piles of files in your computer? This video will show you how to quickly move paper, email, calls, and information through your system as soon as it crosses your desk.
  9. DESK SPACE. You work hard and want to be as productive as possible. If you knew you were inadvertently creating office systems that slowed you down, you would of course be interested in correcting them. To get you started, here are four office faux pas you can fix and instantly become more efficient.
  10. SELF-DISCIPLINE. If you say to yourself, “I probably shouldn’t be doing this right now,” you’re probably right. If you’re honest with yourself, how many hours could you save every day by being more disciplined? You’ll learn how to do what you know you should be doing, even if you don’t feel like it.
  11. PROCRASTINATION. We’ve all let things slide when we shouldn’t have. It’s not always about forgetfulness, or overwork, or even laziness. Find out why you might be procrastinating and how to fix it.
  12. PERFECTIONISM. While a desire for perfection is admirable, it becomes increasingly difficult the closer you get to the goal. At some point, you must decide you’ve done all you can do, and it’s good enough. The trick is how!
  13. OVERLOAD. If you really want to limit your availability and put fences around your time, you’ll have to rein in the worst time bandit there is: yourself. Most of us are simply too generous with our time—and when you’re trying to reach peak productivity, you can’t always give in when someone tries to lay claim to your attention. How do you set boundaries and expectations with others?
  14. FLEXIBILITY. Will change ever cease to exist in your life? Can’t things just stay the same for a little while? Don’t look for a safe harbor to wait out the storm, because there is none. Change will continue to occur at lightning speed. Find out how to keep your stress levels low, so change doesn’t impact you so dramatically.
  15. EMOTIONS. What is attitude? It’s your manner or disposition that reveals your feelings or beliefs. It’s how you look at things. If you generally view the world negatively, those beliefs will typically show up in the way you behave. You’ll learn to identify negative thought patterns, so you can change your attitude.
  16. T-Y-P-E. “I just can’t get anything done!” I often hear that phrase uttered by agitated workers. There are so many distractions in the workplace that it’s often very difficult to concentrate. There are four TYPEs of distractions: T-Y-P-E, Technology, Yourself, People, and the Environment. This video will discuss and give solutions for each one.
  17. FOCUS. Superior focus requires the ability stick with one task for a set period until you’re done. How do you maximize your focus when there are so many distractions? While most people thing the biggest distraction is other people or even technology, we interrupt ourselves far more. This video will teach you to concentrate.
  18. F-L-O-W. When information comes into your life, across your desk, or into one of your inboxes, do you immediately know what to do with it? Do you know exactly how to exact any action items? Are you clear on where it goes? The ease at which you process information into and out of your life will define how organized and efficient you can be.
  19. TIME WASTERS. Of all the resources available to us, time is certainly the most precious. Once time is spent, it’s gone, and you can’t get it back. And yet, we invariably waste it. Learn about the most common time wasters and how to overcome them.
  20. COMMUNICATION. People will inevitably cause breakdowns in your workflow. We try to do our best, but we make mistakes, we forget, we let deadlines slip, we communicate poorly, we suffer illness and injury—and because of this, we inadvertently damage our own and other people’s productivity. Here are some people issues to watch for and suggestions on handling them.
  21. SCHEDULING. Trying to keep your calendar up to date can be a job in itself! Here are ten time-tested techniques to help you keep your schedule organized.
  22. S-H-A-R-E. To stay organized, you need to track all the basic information required to keep your life and schedule moving along smoothly. To a large extent, this will depend on the personal time management system you adopt, whether it’s paper-based, electronic, or some hybrid method of both.
  23. EMAIL. Our email inboxes are overflowing with information. Some people have hundreds or thousands of emails in various stages of completion: new, in progress, pending, waiting, reference, etc. In talking with people about their systems for processing email, it has proven to be an area of extreme frustration, as most people don’t HAVE a system. Here’s how you can approach it.
  24. TECHNOLOGY. With so many time-saving technology tips available to us today, it’s hard to know what’s a time saver, and what’s a waste of time, or at least a technology toy rather than a tool. Here are some of my favorite time-saving technology tips.
  25. ENERGY. Energy is capacity: the potential to do work, to enjoy life, and to achieve your goals. Energy affects everything—it’s the very axis on which your productivity spins. How do you boost yours to maximum productivity?
  26. HEALTH. What are the three best things you can do for yourself to maintain high energy levels, stay healthy, and keep your productivity levels high? It’s nothing new under the sun: sleep, diet, and exercise. But how do you manage it in your busy schedule?
  27. SELF-CARE. Watching the news for 60 minutes can be rather depressing. Rather than letting external forces drag you down and ruin your ability to hold it all together, make a conscious decision to adopt a more positive attitude. How can you make yourself happy and maintain an upbeat outlook?
  28. CORE VALUES. What is important to you? Why do you work so hard? People often love their work and personal lives with equal vigor and don’t want to give up either. Learn how to participate fully in one area without sacrificing the other.
  29. MISSION. Unless you’re independently wealthy, you must work in some capacity. You need money to provide food, clothing, and shelter, so you can do important things with your life. You work to live; you don’t live to work. You are so much more than what you do for a living! Learn how to define and follow your mission in life.
  30. BALANCE. Are you spending your time based on what’s important to you? Life balance is difficult to achieve, because employees have a real commitment to their jobs and to their families. Learn how to spend your time in a way that reflects your values.
