May 23, 2008
By following the advice in the article, you will be well on your way to doubling your productivity. Brian Tracy has been training business leaders for many years. His advice will take you to the top of your field.

You will only benefit from this article if you apply the techniques that Brian Tracy recommends. As you go through the article, pay attention to the ideas that come to you. Write these ideas down. Start applying them without delay.

The Law of Forced Efficiency states:

"There's never enough time to do everything, but there's always enough time to do the most important things."

Your ability to be successful in your life will depend in large portion on your ability to identify the most important task to perform right now. And then to get to work doing that task, and only that task, until it is complete.

To implement the Law of Forced Efficiency, Brian Tracy suggests that you ask yourself Four Great Questions:

1. Before you start on anything, always ask yourself "What is going to be the most important thing for me to do right now?"

2. Why are you being paid? What did you get hired to do? Are you doing that one thing that will most determine your success?

3. Are there certain things that only you can do that when done right make a significant difference to your organization?

4. What one thing that you can work on right away will be the most valuable use of your time?

The answers to each of these questions will tell you exactly what you need to work on at the moment. You should be focusing on these tasks all day long.

Get input from your boss and co-workers about these answers to these questions. If you aren't absolutely clear on the answers to these questions, you won't be working on the right things.

How to Proceed:

1. Make you To Do list for the day.

2. Ask the Four Great Questions about each of the items on your list.

3. Start work on your most important task, right away, and don't stop until it is 100% complete.

If you asked Brian Tracy, I'm sure that he would say that his success is due in no small measure to his ability to know which is the most important task he should be working on right now and then working on it. Try and learn as much from Brian Tracy as you can.
