Finding Time and Productivity by Finding Quiet

We live in an age of instant access and constant connection.  As wonderful as it all is, do you sometimes feel inundated with information, tasks, choices, and opportunities?

Advice from a Pro

Connie Ragen Green posted a very helpful piece of advice this past Wednesday in her blog E-Book Writing and Marketing Secrets with Connie Ragen Green.

In her post titled Write Your E-Book by Staying Focused and Managing Your Time, Connie shares her recipe for success.

ContemplationHer suggestion?  “Choose time every day that is designated just for you.” What Connie specifically suggests is an hour of quiet contemplation, then an hour of productive writing.

I wholeheartedly endorse this idea.

Your energy and you…

  • Self-care is the root of successful time management.  It replenishes your energy and sharpens your focus.
  • Quiet and contemplation will get your creative ideas flowing like water from its well-spring.

The addition to her recipe that I have found helpful in my own life is to “think small.”  Try looking at your time in 15-minute increments.  You’ll be amazed at how this can change things for you.  So stay tuned, because I’ll write more about “thinking 15” tomorrow.

Quiet time is within your reach.
