Be honest. When you look back at your workday, or your workweek, did you achieve everything you wanted to? Did the important things get done? Were there things you allowed to distract your attention away from your highest priorities?

In this episode of Better conversations. Better outcomes., we’re joined by Mike Schmitz, host of the Productivity Show podcast and author of Thou Shalt Hustle: Pushing Past Average. Mike helps advisors define what being “productive” means to them, both in business and in life. Plus, he discusses how technology can be a productivity killer and the tips he’s received to achieve more with less.

In this episode:

  • Productivity = Your time, your attention, your energy and your focus
  • Why goal length matters as much as the goal itself
  • The difference between having a “fixed” mindset and a “growth” mindset, plus other lifestyle changes
  • Despite what you think, multi-tasking actually decreases productivity
  • Leveraging the Pareto principle (the 80/20 rule) to better yourself daily
