Darren Hardy Insane Productivity Module 3
It’s no the time you put in, it’s what you put in the time. Same time, higher impact. Find your power hours and protect them with a vengeance. Your power hours are the times during the day when you are most powerful mentally.
It is your responsibility to train the people around you. You get in life what you tolerate. Life will organize around the standards you set. All behavior is training those around you how to treat you.
- Email (designated time)
- Knock at door (schedule)
- Calls (never answer) Darren never answers a live phone. You don’t have to go to this extreme, but consider putting your phone on silent or vibrate at least.
- Showing up late (10/15 rule)
- Talk to You (respect)
Email should be avoided for all time-sensitive and urgent information. People who attend to email vigilantly and respond immediately are probably also delivering lower-quality output on their real work. Teach people how to communicate with you. Once you set the rules, don’t break them. People feel safer knowing the boundaries. It may seem harsh at the time, but in the long run it reduces their stress and uncertainty.
Don’t take on other people’s problems all day. Instead tell yourself this, “Ah, you forgot your monkey.” Listen, have compassion, empathize and then leave the conversation with, “I’m sure you’ll figure it out.”
What do you need to stop tolerating? Write down at least three things.

“The greatest geniuses sometimes accomplish more when they work less.” Leonardo DaVinci.
It is a very good plan every now and then to go away and have a little relaxation..when you come back to the work, your judgement will be surer, since to remain constantly at work will cause you to lose the power of judgment.
Rest is a critical component of high performance. Because your body craves oscillation. The problem is the absence of disciplined and intermittent recovery. Chronic stress without recovery depletes energy reserves, leads to burn-out and breakdown, and ultimately undermines performance. The greater the performance demand, the greater the need for recovery.

You get paid to rest. Key to going faster is to relax. “Having lost sight of our goals, we redouble our efforts.” – Mark Twain
Go faster…Slow down
More done…Less Effort.Share this if you got Value!
