The Difference Between Busy and Productive

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now Productivity is not a measurement of how many tasks you cross off your to-do list or how much work you do. It’s a measurement of the progress you make on important outcomes.It is very easy to busy yourself doing all kinds of things that make no difference to the results you are trying to achieve. You can say “yes” to all kinds of work and projects that consume your time and energy and, while interesting, do nothing to move your major projects or initiatives or goals.Narrow Your FocusBeing productive is about narrowing your focus. It’s about prioritization. It means that you carefully select what is important, eliminating things that are not so as to invest your time and energy where it makes a difference. It’s not a badge of honor to be busy, no matter how many things you get done in a day. A successful day is a day when you make major progress on what is most important.If you struggle with this idea, a time journal is one way to take a measurement and make adjustments. Start by writing down everything you do from the time you wake up until you go to sleep. Do this for three or four days, being completely honest with yourself. That means writing down that you spent 20 minutes in bed looking at social media on your phone, that you spent an hour on the phone with issues that belong to someone else, and that you spent just over two hours in your inbox. Maybe you spent forty-five minutes on your most important outcomes.Raise Your StandardBy looking at what you really do—and how little of it is related to the outcomes you want to produce—you create the awareness that always precedes a positive change. That positive change requires that you to raise your standard, that you decide and act on the idea that you are going to prioritize what’s most important instead of what makes you busy.If what you are doing is not moving you closer to your goals, then stop doing those things and do something different. There is no reason to be so busy that you are not productive.last_img read more

Jamaica and Namibia Agree Visa Waiver Programme

first_imgStory Highlights Jamaicans traveling to the Republic of Namibia for business or tourism will not be required to obtain a visa. Previously, Jamaica unilaterally waived visa requirements for Namibians entering the country as an expression of solidarity and support during Namibia’s liberation struggle. Namibia today reciprocated this action. It’s the first of several agreements between both countries, as Prime Minister Andrew Holness began a full day of discussions with the Namibian President HE Dr. Hage Geingob. Jamaicans traveling to the Republic of Namibia for business or tourism will not be required to obtain a visa.The Governments of Jamaica and Namibia this morning (July 23) agreed to a visa waiver programme.It’s the first of several agreements between both countries, as Prime Minister Andrew Holness began a full day of discussions with the Namibian President HE Dr. Hage Geingob.Previously, Jamaica unilaterally waived visa requirements for Namibians entering the country as an expression of solidarity and support during Namibia’s liberation struggle. Namibia today reciprocated this action.Speaking at a joint press conference with President Geingob in the Namibian capital Windhoek, Prime Minister Holness said both countries have now cemented a deeper bond.Prime Minister Holness declared that his official visit to Namibia is of strategic importance.“You know we have two beautiful countries, but we scarcely ever get to enjoy the beauty of our countries. We need to encourage travel between our two countries for tourism. I’ve welcomed the announcement by your President of the waiver of visa requirements for Jamaicans; Jamaica had long ago abolished visa requirements for Namibians,” stated Prime Minister Holness.Jamaica and Namibia are also working to secure a stronger relationship in several areas including trade, investment, banking, sports and culture.In addition, Prime Minister Holness stated there will be greater opportunities for the people of both countries.“I think that there is great opportunity for us to continue our exchange of people. We can build a strong human capital base in education. We welcome Namibians to study at our Universities. We welcome Namibians to come and train with us in athletics and sporting endeavors. We believe that there can be significant opportunities between our two countries for trade,” said Prime Minister Holness.In the meantime, Prime Minister Holness and Namibian President Geingob have recommitted to ensuring the African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) group remains.“I also welcome the public support of your President to ensure that the African Caribbean and Pacific arrangement remains intact,” said Prime Minister Holness.Noting that there are some countries who feel it better to negotiate with Europe bilaterally, Prime Minister Holness believes that Jamaica and Namibia can also be efficacious in that regard.“We are stronger together and the liberation struggle may have ended for many Africans but the new struggle is now for our economic independence and our economic liberation and it makes no sense for us to separate on this matter,” argued Prime Minister Holness.The Prime Minister is slated for a series of Government and cultural activities in Namibia for the remainder of his working visit.last_img read more
