You could get more done at the office every day and maybe earn a promotion, or make more money as a result of your ability to produce more sales.
Whether you are a sales person, a CEO, or a housewife, being more productive every day can dramatically improve your life.
OK, right now you are probably saying...sounds great, how can I be instantly more productive?
It's really quite simple. To be instantly more productive you need to acquire a new habit called the 4-D habit.
What is the 4-D habit?
The 4-D habit increases your productivity instantly by helping you prioritize daily tasks and get more done in a shorter period of time.
Here is how it works.
Each day we are all faced with new tasks that must be acted upon. Your boss calls you and asks you to prepare a sales report, your child calls and asks you to help him or her with a difficult school project, your husband wants you to find a better deal on car insurance.
How you act upon the tasks you are presented with each day determines how productive you will be. Make it a habit to apply the 4-D's as listed below to each task.
Do it now - take immediate action, perform the task right away.
Dump it Now - this task is simply not important enough for your time. Dump it and move on.
Delegate It - this task can be performed by someone else, give that person or persons the task. Many people make the mistake of trying to perform all the tasks they are given. The ability to properly delegate is what turns managers into CEO's.
Defer the Task - This task must be done by you, but it can wait. Use the free time you have gained by not performing this task right away and perform other high priority tasks instead.
