Unlike a typical "job" where you either physically or mentally punch the clock and HAVE to be there for a specific period of time...
... WE don't get paid for the hours we put in.
We get paid for results and ONLY for results.
So putting in hours, even when you're not being productive doesn't do anything for your business or your bottom line.
And if I was to identify ONE thing we really get paid for, it's - THINKING.
We get paid to THINK.
Of course you must DO and take action as well, but don't think for a moment that putting "creative thought" into your work is not important.
You need to think about your traffic getting strategy.
You need to think about the best lead generation tactics and how to position your capture page to get the most out of every visitor.
You need to think about your copy and how to match it as closely as possible to your prospect's goals, dreams and desires.
You need to think about your email follow ups, and how to keep your list HAPPY and eager to hear from you.
That's a LOT of friggin' thinking.
And what I found is when I start getting tired and fatigued all my creative energy goes right out the window.
I have to write A LOT everyday. So I need to be as creative as possible on a daily basis.
And with 2 kids, multiple things going on and life in general...
... it's ain't always easy to do.
So here's what I discovered that keeps me on my toes and helps me tap into my "inner creativity" whenever I need to.
First, everyone has their most productive time.
For me, it's usually in the morning.
I can get so much more done during those morning hours, that it doesn't even come close to what I can get done in the afternoon.
So knowing your best time, whether it's morning, night or afternoon, and doing activities that require the most amount of energy in those times, can help you be a lot more productive.
Second thing is feeding yourself the right mental diet on a regular basis.
If you want your mind to spit out quality stuff, then you need to feed the machine.
Not once a week or once a month, but on a daily basis.
Finally, physical movement.
If I ever experience "writer's block" and just can't get my mind to focus, I go outside and just start moving.
Even a 10 minute walk will get your blood pumping and creative juices flowing.
So if you want to get more done and feel like you're lacking energy and not being as productive as you'd like...
... try these ideas, and you'll be amazed at the results.
