Do you ever wish you could get more done in a day? This blog post will teach you an easy way to boost your daily productivity.

I don’t mean to boast, but I’ve become an incredibly productive person. I feel good about sharing that, because I started off at the opposite end of the spectrum. I worked hard and disciplined myself for decades learning how to be more productive, and I quite literally transformed my practice and my life.

I learned everything I could about personal productivity, from workshops and seminars, gurus and their books. I tried almost everything. I let go of the methods that didn’t work, and committed myself to the practice of those that did. And I can honestly say that not only am I a very productive person, but that productivity is a key element of my success as a practice owner.

So I’d like to share with you today one of the productivity tricks I picked up long ago, that I still employ to this day. Don’t worry, it’s about as easy as it gets.

Each work day, when you reach the point where you believe you’ve accomplished everything you needed to that day, push yourself to do one more thing. I’m not talking about delving into a project that keeps you three hours late. It can be something simple. Pick up the phone and make a call to that contact you’ve been meaning to touch base with. File five loose items sitting on your desk. Write that quick memo you were going to do tomorrow.

Small things, right? Not too difficult, no big pressure. But here’s the stunning part: at the end of the week, you will have accomplished five more tasks than you would have otherwise.

At the end of the month, you’ll have accomplished about 20 more tasks. Over the course of the year, you will have knocked out more than 200 extra tasks – and just by doing one more thing at the end of the day.
