Because if there’s one thing I’ve learned as a former NLP Practitioner and now Mind resonance Coach, and probing the minds of the ambitious for over 12 years is It’s that Individuals and business owners like yourself are never going to be satisfied playing small.
Or let a skills gaps, mindset limitation keep you from building a business that expresses your full potential of freedom, joy and abundance.and allows you to have balance while doing so.
If you’re reading this… Then I know we already share a love of independence, being your own boss and chasing the thrill of creating a dream business and life aspirations which (let’s be honest) at times scares you as much as it inspires you.
That’s because it’s a grand vision that only those used to following their instincts – and driven to do what ever it takes– will have the drive to pursue a business to Success, that was before there was a ability to tap into your mind and propel it towards your Success
I also know that making money is only one part of your dream.
And that, however blocked you may feel at the moment, you believe challenges are just temporary, and that excellence and being the best version of you is the only standard worthy of targeting!

An extraordinary life is created by an ability to take action. Actions geared towards success, are only effortless when our minds belief system are aligned positively, to what we desire and are congruent to our real selves and real desires

In this article, I will explain how to be more productive in your business and provide a life-hack to getting more done over the course of the week. This will enable you to build consistent momentum in your business and track results more effectively, whether you are a startup entrepreneur, small business owner, or you are running a large-scale business.
I figured out this productivity hack when I was in the corporate world. Since then, I have applied this in my own business as well as my clients’ businesses as a Business Coach and mentor, and the momentum they see is astronomical in what they can achieve.
We are going to cover how you can be more productive in your business whilst ensuring you get constant momentum of sales, new leads and new customers.
Some of the most important steps of running a business are:
- The ability to share your knowledge of your product or service
- The ability to sell your product
- The ability to market yourself, your product and service, i.e. your ability to stand out from the competition
- The ability to put systems in place to leverage your time so that you can get more done
There is a lot of noise and coaching programs in the market around how to run a business. My business has been successfully built on the above four principles. Marketing, sales, leverage and my ability to share my expertise and knowledge.
As long as you have these four components, your business is fully covered. If at any point, one of these is lacking, your business cannot run as effectively as possible.
The most amazing thing that I find works for myself and my clients is that the brain can only focus on one task at a time. A lot of people however will do everything in one day. They will fit sales, marketing, customer responses etc. into one day and wind up exhausted and time-poor.
This productivity hack I’m about to share with you will assist in bringing in new leads to your business and generating new customers.
I teach my clients that it generally takes 4-5 weeks of doing the same tasks, to start getting traction in your business and hit your business goals. Sometimes it takes longer depending on your skill level, or marketing efforts. I work with my clients to section out their week and define when they deal with their customers, when they package / sell their product, when they respond to enquiries, and so on. When this is defined, instead of them running around constantly trying to put out fires, they have a schedule. If you know that you are going to send the proposal to your prospective client on a Monday, generally you will follow up in two days. So, for example, Monday you send the proposals. Wednesday, you follow up. Friday is admin day. Rinse, repeat. Even if you are the most productive person, if you are scattered in your action-taking style, you will find that it impacts your business and does not help with effective leadership. I understand that these days, social media demands constant attention but this can still be managed with the right strategy.
The reason this segmentation of tasks is so effective is that the brain learns how to do a task really quickly if it has done it for a couple of hours consistently, in that day. Instead of writing an email, responding to Instagram messages, processing an order, doing a Facebook live video. This is too much for the brain to do effectively and quickly. However, when you segment your business tasks on certain days and you get your business and staff into the habit of following that routine, it builds momentum whereby it is predictable. This will enable you to be a more effective leader for your staff and your overall business. When you are doing everything everywhere, it’s hard to get consistency and track results to see return on investment. With consistency, you can see that on Monday, you sent X amount of proposals. On Wednesday, you generated X amount of leads. This now gives you a clear tracking ability to see exactly what is going on in your business.
This strategy allows you to get better at what you are doing in a short amount of time. The brain will become really good at an important task if it does it over and over. Take factory workers for example. They will process tasks over and over extremely fast, as the brain has learned this technique. If they were to stop and learn something new, it would take a while to build new momentum for the new task in the same amount of time.
If you can apply the discipline to have this approach over 40 weeks of the year, it will make it so easy for you to gain momentum and get results. It will also save time for you and enable you to be more productive in the long-run as well as improve your leadership skills. My clients love this approach because they don’t have to worry about certain things on certain days, so they have more focus to run a successful business.
When I looked at various business owners and the way they ran their business, I could see that people doing little bits of different things constantly, every day were less productive than people spending one or two days per week doing the same task. For example, self titled productive people who try to do everything in a day i.e. sending emails, replying to enquiries, processing orders, writing new content, updating their website etc. were executing 15% less than people who designated tasks to one allocated time slot. Therefore, they didn’t have as much as a productive day as they set out to achieve.
If you have these four things mastered in your business i.e. your ability to market yourself, sell your service, share your knowledge and leverage your time effectively; these will allow you to adopt a leadership role, manage performance and determine whether your business is going to be a success.
