Let's dive in now...
Last Tuesday, we talked about having a process mindset a mechanism to help you get there and also having a mentor and or a coach to help you avoid the pitfalls and landmine that will stop you from truly living and in pursuit of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness which is the American dream. And so today I wrote this down. I want to talk about, you know I spent a lot of time talking about productivity at work and someone said to me the other day, they said, you know I spent a lot of time at work but really Lyman I'm not really working while I'm at work.
Hmm think about that I'm at work but I'm not really working while at work. So today I will talk about working while you are working. And what I mean by that? You see those of you that work on a job you was hired in exchange for a salary in exchange for a wage to give that company so many hours of work output.
They give you a check, they give you a wage in exchange you give them some work, but a lot of people are at work and they're goofing off their job jacket and they're not getting work done. Productivity is in the toilet and then walking around with a cup of coffee taking 1,500 coffee breaks, humping everybody, reports haven't been filed, emails haven't been read or sent, and yet they're getting a check they're robbing companies blind because they're not working while they're working. Now if you find yourself in that category, for sample I know when I go to work, it's hard for me to get motivated, it's hard for me to get in the zone man, it's hard for me. You know I got to warm up, I got to crank this thing up before I can get doing. I want to give you three tips that will help you to work while you're at work.
Three Tips that Will Help You to Work While You're at Work.
Number one understand that you've already been paid or will be paid to provide a service to that company or to your clients, so you don't want to be a fraud. Yeah you heard me said you don't want to be a fraud of scumbag a thief a rogue as my grandmother would say. You want to make sure maybe old saying honest day wage for honest day work. You know you didn't work without assignment for four hours of why you charging for six hours. You're a liar, you're cheat, you're a scumbag. I digress let me get focused again.
So number two is you want to make sure that you write down and you log the amount of time that you're spending working versus non revenue or non work activity. You want to come up with well how much time am I really spending in non-work-related activities, you want to do that for at least a week and that will help you gauge how much time you're spending and non-work related activities.
I know folks that come into the office and they will spend two hours Joe jacking talking about nothing and no work is getting done and we wonder why we're in the situation that we're in and while you're behind.
Stop all Joe jacking, get to work write things down figure out how much time you're spending at non-work related activities, understand that you're getting paid to do a job, you're not getting Joe Jack and everything else okay? Do that and let me know your thoughts your comments.

About the Author
I was highly distracted, chasing every new hack, magic bullets, or never before revealed strategy only to end up frustrated, stuck, and waiting for the next trainer, coach, guru to sell me something I didn't need. After years of running in place, I decided that true transformation depended on me, so I learn how to focused my mind and attention using a set of skills and techniques, and within a matter of weeks, my life, and business changed. To save you from my mistakes, I decided to write a blog that would actually give tips and strategies that worked. The second reason for this blog is to combat the irrelevant and inaccurate misinformation out there on how to become better focused, productive, and profitable.
