3 Reasons to Keep Your Day Job

Watching people and their habits is something that I’ve done for years. Growing up on the east coast, visiting New York City, my parents owning a hotel, all were tremendous opportunities for me be curious about people’s habits. As a business consultant today, I use those natural observation skills to identify problems that affect people’s personal productivity. Lack of productivity often transfers to lost business opportunities, translating to losing money. Time management is always a hot topic. I hear people say all too often, I don’t have time. I want to meet with you but we’re too busy. When things … Read More>>

Strategies to Further Improve Your Work Productivity

 1. Undertake the most difficult thing first. As soon as you arrive at the office, you may be inclined to first check your emails, go through the day’s mail, or furrow through some easy admin activities. Instead, try doing the most challenging, trickiest (or least satisfying) action early in the day. You’ll be approaching it when your focus level is raised and your mind is sharp.

 2. Prepare for tomorrow at the close of today. Take 15 minutes at the end of every day to make tomorrow’s to-do list. This routine of preparing will give you the gift of focus, … Read More>>

Investing in a Business Coach or Professional Organizer

In an interview, I was asked how do I help people see the value in investing in personal productivity?

My response was that I learned to be very focused on what I am truly passionate about and to concentrate on the outcome and the completion of what it takes for individual personal productivity. Like my clients, I strive to not get distracted by the shiny objects. Just as I coach my clients, I avoid the peripheral “things,” the “maybe we should look at that too or look at this.” I focus on the simplified methodology for the issues they are

Are you committed to change?

In an interview I was asked, “as a business coach, how do I get commitment from clients?”

            I gain commitment by influencing and persuading clients about several objectives and by having them buy into the process. I have a plethora of methods.
