Share Your Intentions With Someone Else

People are more apt to follow through on their intentions and goals if they share them with someone else. A simple way to create more productivity and success is to give yourself the gift of an accountability partner.

No time to meet in person? Checking in with your partner can be as easy as a quick phone call or text message to report on how you're doing with your goals. Amazingly, one text message can be a powerful way to achieve your goals.

Smart companies and employers recognize that accountability partnerships help people achieve business goals too. Here we share five simple tips for how to create a successful accountability partnership at work.

Outlook is Everything (We're not Talking Email)

Positive thinking has a significant impact on how we approach our day, our tasks, our relationships and life in general. A positive outlook can help overcome all kinds of obstacles and lead to greater satisfaction and success. In a recent post we talked about how "framing" our day with positive thinking and good planning helps you set yourself up for optimal productivity and results.

Make Your Bed, Change Your Life

“If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed," advised Navy Seal William H. McCraven to graduates in is 2014 commencement speech at the University of Texas. Making your bed helps you face the day with a feeling of accomplishment even before you brush your teeth. It is one of the simplest daily success habits to develop, and starts off a chain reaction of other productive habits and better decisions throughout your day.

The intention and quality with which you make your bed (or brush your teeth or approach any other task) set the tone for your day and are reflected in everything else you do. In this post we explain how the care with which you make your bed can improve your productivity, focus, sleep and happiness. Who wouldn't want that?

Eat The Frog First

Have you heard the saying "If the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, then nothing worse can happen for the rest of the day"? Author and motivational speaker Brian Tracy applies this idea to the problem of procrastination and getting things done; he says your frog is the most difficult thing on your task list. Complete or eat the frog first to reduce procrastination, increase your productivity and motivate your work for the rest of the day.

If you set the intention to eat your frog first each day (and follow through of course) you may be amazed by the results - lower stress, increased energy and greater productivity are just a few benefits you may find. Here are four simple tips to help you eat your frog first.
