10 Productivity Tips to Help You Get $#!t Done!

When you are forced to work from home, how do you prioritize? How do you decide which task to tackle first?

Truth: A key differentiator between people who succeed in their business and those who do not is personal productivity.

Leaders and entrepreneurs who are consistently making things happen know how to achieve what they want in less time than others.

There’s a lot to be learned from the tactics of successful, and incredibly busy, individuals on how to better organize our own days. Here are 10 things you can start doing today:

  1. Pick 1 task to focus on. One thing many successful entrepreneurs have in common is the ability to focus on what matters most. Pick one thing and do that one thing.

  2. Block out distractions. Period. Martina Navratilova says, “I concentrate on concentrating.” If you don’t have the willpower to be self-accountable, try Rescue Time. It is an application that runs in the background of your computer and measures how you spend your time so you can make better decisions.

  3. Set a strict time limit on meetings. In general, people don’t need as much time as they ask for. Meetings can be time vampires. So, be cut-throat when it comes to managing your time so you can focus on high value tasks.

  4. Set up productivity rituals. Many of  you know I swear by waking up earlier than most consider normal. You also know that because of this, there are tasks that are done by 6am. Therefore, setting up rituals that automate behaviors, make us more productive – without depleting our energy reservoir. 4am may not be your cup of tea, but force yourself to prioritize so that you know that you will finish at least that one critical task during the period of the day when you have the most energy and the fewest distractions.

  5. Get up earlier. Research shows that mornings can make or break your day. Use the mantra “mind over mattress” to motivate yourself to get out of bed to pursue your goals.

  6. Outsource personal chores. Highly productive people are selective about how they expend their energy. They don’t waste time or energy on tasks that others can do. Do a cost/benefit analysis of how you spend your time and see if it’s worth offloading some repetitive tasks so you can focus on what will bring value to your company.

  7. Increase your effectiveness through technology. There’s a plethora of programs to make a small-business owner more effective in increasing productivity. A few popular tools—some of which are free—include Dropbox to store files online; Any Meeting to host a webinar and Hootsuite or Buffer to schedule your social media postings.

  8. Don’t say yes to every request. Most of us have a deep need to be liked. That translates into us saying yes to everything – which is the end of your elite productivity.

  9. Stop multi-tasking. Research confirms that all the distractions invading our lives are rewiring the way our brains work. Be one of the rare-air few who develops the mental and physical discipline to have a mono-maniacal focus on one thing for many hours. It’s all about practice.

  10. Learn from others. Understand that for you to move to your next level of success, you must be in constant student mode. Whether you’re learning from others, attending school, reading books, attending seminars or taking a course, you have to gain access to the information you don’t know so you can get to where you want to be.

Your productivity is your life made visible. Protect your time, your energy, your business, your life.

Join us as we share some productivity tips for you to keep top of mind, during these trying times!

ETTWomen CJ: Book Signing + Workshop – 4 Key Elements of Healthy Love with Jillian Coburn

There are a lot of relationship paradigms being offered. Many of these offer ideas of true love conquering, enduring, and being all. They involve accepting another’s faults completely and without question, with an ideal of compromise, hard work. While many of these concepts are noble and true, they only apply in the right relationship.

In the wrong relationships, these same concepts are being used as reasons to stay because we still want to believe that love is enough all by itself. What we know is that love, in and of itself, is not enough. The wrong relationship can take these qualities that would make the right relationship thrive and endure and instead make excuses for our (or our partner’s) lack of health, toxic markers and red flags. A relationship cannot be healthy if one of the partners is not.

Jillian Coburn will speak about the 4 Key Elements of Healthy Love and how it is not exempt from challenge, effort, compassion, and compromise, but its characteristics do set it apart.

Jillian Coburn is an author, entrepreneur, inventor, outdoorswoman, and mother of three who is passionately committed to supporting and elevating women who have nowhere to turn and living under the shadows of domestic violence. A survivor herself, Jillian energetically assists women living with abuse by empowering and teaching them how to get out, heal and build a life they’ve always imagined. In her book, Coburn shares resources and tools of how she helped herself in hopes to help other women break the cycle of addiction, abuse and despair.

Jillian is co-owner of NOLA Prestige Electric, a women/minority based contracting company. She is also an up and coming inventor soon to release a product invented for families with kids and who have animals.

Coburn also founded the apparel line, Reel Housewives of the Deep South, in 2014, producing one-of-a-kind American-made designs for Southern women who love the outdoors and choose “catfishing over catfighting!”

Jillian spends her time on the lake or at home creating new books. She is readily involved with PTA and is the president of Fundraising. She enjoys traveling and spending time with family. Jillian lives and works in Lago Vista, Texas with her husband and three children.

The Power of WE: Women’s Empowerment Through Collaboration

We are on a mission to shift the conversation, but in order to do that, we must also take action!

Women who support women are more successful. There is no more time for competition, no more time for envy, and no more time for fear.

It’s almost always true that every woman we meet is fighting a battle we know nothing about. Admiring other women’s strengths actually helps us all come out as stronger individuals.

When one of us wins, we all do. Why? We subconsciously give other women permission and courage to pursue their own dreams.

For the first time ever in New Jersey, join the founders and leaders of ETTWomen, FemCity, eWomen, BIG, The Co-Co, The NJ Yoga Collective , and AOWIE for a powerful panel discussion about Women’s Empowerment Through Collaboration.

Limited seats available.
