3 keys to productivity

Featuring Kevin Gienger, CPA, managing partner, Boldt Carlisle + Smith


Video transcript:

The three keys to working less and accomplishing more: The first piece is prioritization. You have to prioritize both personally and professionally. Know what you’re trying to accomplish. The second piece of that would be to have a process for scheduling and planning forward and then a process for looking backward, making sure that you’re addressing the priorities that you’ve set and making progress on those. We often find if we stop at some point, instead of trying to continually set new goals and new bars for ourselves, and look backwards that we’ll see that we’ve made progress and that helps to motivate you to continue on even if progress feels slow. And the third piece is people. We all know that we can accomplish more by working with others than we can on our own, but also with people we have to make sure that we take care of ourselves — that we are healthy, we’re rested, and we use some time to build our own skills to help lead people.
