The other day I met up with a friend and fellow blogger IRL.
In case you aren’t familiar, IRL is online lingo for, “In Real Life.”
It means, in the physical world, not playing on your phone. (Gasp!)
These days we live such virtual lives that many of us communicate more via our mobile devices than we do talking to others.

Too much to do and too stressed?
Perhaps, you need to consider why you are so busy in the first place.
Who is loading up your work-list anyway?
Chances are… it’s you.
When was the last time you said no to yourself?

You meant to get it done.
Like most entrepreneurs, you have a lot of great ideas. So many, in fact, that sometimes you don’t know which intention to act on next. And sometimes, well, things slide.
How can you turn your intentions into actions?
You have a task that is not getting done.
In fact, it’s been on your todo list for a long time.
Days, months, …even years.

Today is an important day.
You may not have thought of it as such, but it is.
Because today is the one day you can control.
What will you do with it?
Chances are that you want to read more books than you currently do.
Yet, reading is probably one of the first things to fall off your list.
The average person read less than 6 books last year.

Being productive isn’t always effortless and simple.
Sometimes being productive hurts a little bit.
Discomfort, hurt feelings, or even disappointment.
Are you willing to endure short-term pain in order to reach your goals?
Your attitude determines your productivity.
More than almost any other factor, your perspective on the current situation affects your ability to get work done.
If you need to be more productive, make sure you bring your positive attitude.
