Do you ever feel unfocused and unproductive–like all of your tasks and responsibilities are pressing on you and there is nothing to keep you from drowning?
Reading Matt Perman’s book What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms The Way You Get Things Done has been very helpful for me in thinking about focus and productivity at work. In the book, Perman shares two easy questions to ask to sharpen your focus and productivity with what you need to get done:
1. What do I need to do this week?
2. What would I like to do this week?
Shaping your mind and workflow around these two crucial questions will increase your efficiency and reduce stress. What helps you stay focused and productive on what’s most important? — Stay tuned to the blog for a full review of What’s Best Next and a few more thoughts on productivity.
