“Money loves speed.” – Dan Kennedy
One of the coolest things about being an entrepreneur is that you can literally give yourself a raise any time you want.
By getting more done in less time.
Here are 3 instant ways to turbocharge your productivity:
1: Gene Schwartz’s 33-Minute Secret
The late great Gene Schwartz is a legend in the world of copywriting. And for good reason: his ads pulled in millions upon millions of dollars in sales.
When asked the secret to his prolific and incredibly profitable career, Schwartz said it was working in 33-minute bursts.
Here’s how it works:
Set a timer for 33 minutes and 33 seconds. You do nothing during this time but work – no email, no Facebook, no playing with the dog, no suddenly deciding that the dishes must be done this instant. Just work.
When those 33 minutes are up – no matter how important the task you may be in the middle of – you stop to take a short break.
These micro-bursts of super-focused intensity are easy to do because they’re relatively short. But try it out for yourself and you’ll be amazed at how effectively it increases your productivity.
2: Kill Your TV
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American watches 2.8 hours of TV per day.
If your entrepreneurial dreams are more of a side hustle right now, then it can be a monumental challenge to come home after a long day at work … and start working some more. Chillaxing on the couch with a few hours of reality TV is mighty tempting.
But it’s also going to keep you stuck in the 9 to 5 hamster wheel from here to eternity.
Try going just a single week without TV.
Think of how much time that will add to your schedule. Now imagine using that time to get your website up and running, put the final touches on your product, or build your business empire.
You think that might make some awesome things happen in your life? Heck yes, my friend.
3: Just Say No
We have a tendency, especially early in our entrepreneurial journey, to say “yes” to every opportunity that comes our way. This is a mistake.
By saying “no” to some opportunities – usually the ones we want to grasp out of a sense of fear and desperation – we free up time for bigger and better opportunities in the future.
Here’s Richard Branson on saying no:
“Sometimes you may need to pass on an opportunity for the good of a fledgling enterprise. You might lose a little business, but it’s better to focus on building steady growth than on gaining quick wins.”
You know, some folks have questioned how I can offer copywriting at such affordable prices.
The assumption is that awesome prices equate to awful quality.
But here’s the truth: I’m more focused, harder working, and productive than most copywriters out there.
That means I write faster. And I pass those savings on to you.
