  • 3. Developing Peak ProductivityAbout Us: Dennis Becker began his Internet marketing career in 1998 by selling on eBay while still running a full time retail business. Beginning in 2002, he became interested in Internet marketing, and spent 3 years trying virtually everything with dismal results. One day, frustrated and beat, but unwilling to quit,he devised a new strategy to simplify the entire process, starting with amindset makeover. That strategy changed his life, and he wrote about it inthe classic “5 Bucks a Day” book, available at Amazon, or through a link inthe resources section.He also opened an “Insiders Club” in 2007 to help more experienced Internetmarketers achieve their first $1000/day of profits by following proven,sometimes little-appreciated, business models to receive amazing results. Rachel Rofe has been a full time Internet Marketer since June 2006, and has been on the Internet for over a decade. Although shes dabbled in many fields, shes mostly known as a membership site expert, copywriter to the "Internet Stars", and offline business expert. She dedicates her time to learning as much as possible, both in Internet Marketing and in life. She joined the staff of Earn1KaDay in 2010.You can read more about her on her blog at http://www.RachelRofe.com. Copyright © 2010 by Earn1KaDay.com, all rights reserved – Page 3
  • 4. Developing Peak ProductivityIntroProductivity is the name of the game. I dont care what youre doing... creating products, writingsales copy, driving traffic, etc.If you cant do any or all of those tasks efficiently, you will make less money. Period. If it takesyou 12 hours to set up a "money getting" site, when it couldve taken you 2... you just lost 10hours of "profit time".Ouch.It gets worse. Taking a long time to do anything creates a NEGATIVE association to that task.Therefore, next time you have to do it... youll naturally be resistant to it. Because youll think ofthe last time you did it… how long and cumbersome it was... and pretty soon youll find creativeways to procrastinate on it.Put this in your mind and keep it there - developing peak productivity is one of the mostvaluable skills you can cultivate in your business. And were going to show you how to do justthat.Was Today A Success?Peak productivity starts with measurement... and one of the best measurements is to know iftoday will be a "success" or "failure" for you.Question: do you know if yesterday was a success or not? The day before? And the day beforethat?You should know the answer to that... EVERYDAY.Heres how you know if a day was a success or not: if you met the MEASURABLE goal you set forthat day. Wait, whats that? You dont set a goal EVERY single day for THAT day? If not, youshould do so ASAP. Copyright © 2010 by Earn1KaDay.com, all rights reserved – Page 4
  • 5. Developing Peak ProductivityIf you follow this one practice alone, your productivity will at least triple. Simple as that.Long term goals are dead. The chaos of the marketplace and the rapid change we all experiencethese days makes long term goals ineffective.You need short term goals. One a day. So heres what it looks like. You wake up in the morning.You know EXACTLY what you need to do THAT day to define the day as a success. Then at theend of the day you simply look back at your goal...And ask yourself - did I meet it or not? If you go day after day not meeting your goal - then whoare you kidding? Youre screwed. You either need to change your goals or change how youapproach your goals.Lets give some examples. Say you need traffic for one of your websites. So your goal fortomorrow might be to focus 3 hours of uninterrupted work on doing things that could bring intraffic to your site.Thats your goal. By the way, notice the keyword "uninterrupted". That doesnt mean from 9 AMuntil Noon and then youre done. If you were chatting on Skype, taking a ton of breaks to checkemail and mess around, then your three hours of uninterrupted work might actually extendfrom 9 am until 5 pm.Regardless - you now have a goal today. DO STUFF for at least 3 hours of actual work togenerate traffic. That might mean an hour of writing and submitting articles. That might be anhour of creating and deploying content for social media. And it might be an hour of contactingand trying to set up joint ventures.Now, lets clarify - STUDYING is not doing. Reading an ebook on how to drive traffic is notactively working to drive traffic. Get it?See how the nature of that days goal practically forces us to be productive? Thats the secret.Set a goal that will force you to be productive to get the results you need, and then work at it.Simple as that.Every single day - you should have a goal for that day. Then you do it. Welcome to the world ofhigh level productivity. Copyright © 2010 by Earn1KaDay.com, all rights reserved – Page 5
  • 6. Developing Peak ProductivityHave A High Tolerance For ImperfectionsHeres a statement you should agree with - striving to be perfect is IMPERFECT. You know whatperfect really is in the market place? GOOD ENOUGH. Good enough is PERFECT.There will be times when you dont write EXACTLY what you wanted to write when you send anemail out to your list. Who cares? As long as you got the basic point across, it doesnt matter.GOOD ENOUGH.There might be a time when youre setting up a blog and you want the header to be slightlydifferent... but you tweaked it... and tweaked it... and tweaked it... and you cant get it there.Who cares? Is the header really that important? No. Move on.Tying this to your daily goal will help you out tremendously. If your goal for that day was tospend 3 hours driving traffic, thats 3 hours less you have to spend tinkering with other stuff. Sothat helps there.But it goes beyond that - your customers dont want perfect. They HATE it when you try to beperfect. Because theyd rather have "good enough" NOW than perfect 4 weeks from now. Theyjust want the information. They just want the technique.Heres what will help you to eliminate this whole "it has to be perfect" problem -- you canalways improve it later.You can always make it better later. So put it out there and set the goal that two weeks fromnow youll go back and spend 2 hours improving it. Better to get it out to the market place asquickly as possible, and THEN improve it based on feedback instead of trying to make it perfect.You do no one a benefit if you try to make things perfect. Not your customers. Not you. No one.So work for "good enough" instead.The Power Of Self-Imposed DeadlinesHeres the best strategy to force yourself to work for "good enough" - a self-imposed deadline.Every task worth doing in your business MUST have a deadline attached to it. Copyright © 2010 by Earn1KaDay.com, all rights reserved – Page 6
  • 7. Developing Peak ProductivityAnd to take it a step further - when that deadline is up, youre done.Let me give you an example: say you set a deadline to have a new product finished in the next48 hours. Guess what? Whatever you have to show for when 48 hours up is what yourelaunching.If you truly were to follow that principle, youd make sure you had something that was "goodenough" to launch in 48 hours.The nature of the deadline MAKES you deal with the most critical elements of a task. If youdont have a deadline on a task, then you can focus on ANYTHING for any period of time,because there is no sense of urgency.But if you have 48 hours, youre not going to waste your time on making sure every sentence isworded perfectly... everything is formatted perfectly... and that youve included every singledetail, big and small, in your product.No. A 48 hour deadline means that you better focus on delivering GREAT INFO first andforemost. Then if you have time you can go back and "clean up" some sentences... or improvethe formatting... or add in more stuff.Heres a sentence you should put in your brain and keep there - anything worth doing inbusiness MUST have a deadline attached to it.Checking email must have a deadline attached to it. Writing a blog post must have a deadlineattached to it. Setting up a website must have a deadline attached to it. Writing a sales lettermust have a deadline attached to it.ANYTHING worth doing must have a deadline attached to it. You follow this principle, you willeasily triple your productivity. Easily.Using the 6 Prongs Of MotivationAll humans are motivated by 6 things. Use all 6 as motivators, and it will more easily propel youto get things done... to use self-imposed deadlines... to set small daily goals... and to makeconstant improvements in your approaches and systems. Copyright © 2010 by Earn1KaDay.com, all rights reserved – Page 7
  • 8. Developing Peak ProductivityThese 6 motivators are... 1. The desire to obtain power 2. The fear of losing power 3. The desire to help others 4. The fear of not being able to help others 5. The desire of achievement 6. The fear of not achievingThere you go. Each day you should go through this list after you set your daily goal to giveyourself some motivation.For example, if your goal was to work for 3 hours straight at doing different stuff to get traffic...you could go through this list and say..."Getting traffic will better allow me to control my financial destiny because I have a crowd I canalways tap into once I get that traffic.." (desire to obtain power)"If I dont get traffic, Im doomed to the hope and pray strategy of someone making moneyonline, and I’ll be rendered virtually powerless... (the fear of losing power)"Also, once I discover a really great traffic generating secret, I can share it with other marketers,and help them achieve their goals as well..." (desire to help others)"But if I dont discover this, then I cant contribute anything worthwhile to the world to make ita better place" (fear of not helping others)"And at the end of the day, I know I can sleep peacefully because I set out a goal and I achievedit... so I did what winners do... and if I do this every day I know my success is guaranteed" (thedesire of achievement)"And I will do it because if I dont, Im just building a bad habit of not achieving my goals, and Idont want that because my life will be horrible if I dont go out and achieve amazing things andlive up to my full potential..." (the fear of not achieving) Copyright © 2010 by Earn1KaDay.com, all rights reserved – Page 8
