Ep. 89 – 5 Productivity Tips to Save You Time & Your Sanity (Ultimate Focus & Freedom Masterclass Day 4)

June 22, 2023

Research shows that of the time given to a workday, 80% is spent doing tasks with little to no value and only 20% is spent doing something important. That’s a BIG scary stat!

And yet when Google sends me my website report, one of the MOST looked at pages – is a blog I wrote in 2018 – how to increase your odds of success by 95% …it seems people WANT to be more productive.

So today – Day 4 of my free workshop week, Focus & Freedom Masterclass, I’ve cobbled together not just 5 productivity tips to save you time and your sanity but more like 5 concepts to apply in your business that will make you more productive.

Don’t forget to grab your workbook here: www.dianalidstone.com/takenotes so you can create how you’ll best apply these concepts.  One thing I know for sure is that when I listen to podcasts like these – great ideas pop into my head and I need a place to record them – rather than little bits of paper scattered all over the place.
