There are distinct differences between normal, everyday achievers and super high-achievers.
How is it that they are able to manage huge workloads and demands on their time and still achieve so much more than average achievers?
A key difference is in their productivity habits, which they have been able to use to maximize the resources available to them.

One of the critical principles of success is asking. It could be asking for help, asking for a raise at work, or asking for the sale if you’re in sales.
However, people have resistance or hesitate to ask for what they want which often results in them not getting what they want.
In my best-selling book, Building High-Performing Teams, I shared principles that need to be in place to have a team that performs at a high level.
Each new year brings about new issues and new focus. It can be challenging for a team to maintain that high level of performance every year.
How do you get the best out of a team already performing at a high level?
“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.”
Have you every had the experience where, a few hours into your day, you realise you haven’t actually done anything productive yet?
Then you spend the rest of the day frantically trying to get things done to make up for the time you lost at the start of the day?
Wouldn’t it be nice to start off each day in a calm and focused manner?
It has become quite a popular notion in recent times the concept of having balance in life.
In the corporate world, work-life balance initiatives or programs are offered to employees, encouraging them to take part in activities or events outside of work.
In the coaching world, coaches are “coaching” clients on how to get more balance in life.
But is this concept of balance in life really a feasible concept?
Every new year brings a new level of hope, excitement and expectations.
It can be quite challenging to stay focused on your goals or new habits you want to develop this year.
To achieve better results, you will need to get good at saying no to others or to any distractions that are going to take you off course.
Each of us are creatures of habits. Our habits either support us or they hinder our progress.
Either way our current habits are producing the results we are getting. In order to change our results, we must change our habits or eliminate current habits that are not serving us.
