How to Triple Your Productivity in 28 days - Part II
If you've been diligent in doing the past 2 concentration builders you will notice you have a considerable increase in your productivity and your power to stay focused. In fact, you have probably also noticed that you are more organized, and feel more at ease. These are natural side-effects of building your concentration. Congratulations!
* Concentration Builder Week 3
This week's concentration-builder is a more potent form of week 2. This time instead of actually counting your steps, you also include focusing on your breathe while walking. So it goes like this.
Whenever you are walking, simply coordinate your breathing with your steps.Again, you want to pick a number that's comfortable for you. Between 3 and 6 is what works for most people. So if you choose the number 4, you want to breathe in over 4 steps. Then breathe out over 4 steps. Inhale for 4 steps. Exhale for 4 steps.
I particularly like this one. I've been doing it for years and it's almost second nature for me. You'll also find yourself quickly making this concentration-builder a habit once you do it a few times. And once you make it a habit, your concentration, focus, and productivity will continue to improve.
* Concentration Builder Week 4
This last concentration-builder is simple yet powerful. Note: I said simple...but it may not be easy. But if you are intent on developing an iron-clad concentration, focus and improved productivity, then spend 5 minutes each day on this one and watch your life change by this time next week.
You'll probably need to turn off the t.v...(no groaning) ... and send the kids and spouse out of the room to get the full benefit of this concentration-builder, but it also can be done anytime.
First, focus on your breathing. Now starting from 100 and counting down to 0, you'll count each inhale and exhale to yourself. IE... inhale...exhale...100, inhale...exhale...99, inhale...exhale... 98, etc. That's it!
The first few days you may find your mind wandering all over the place, losing count, thinking of events of the day. If so, you have to start all over at 100 and begin again.
By day 4 or 5, you should be able to get close to doing the whole countdown with some effort. By day 7, you'll find your concentration extremely focused and a new sense of effectiveness and organization as your increased productivity allows you to get more done in less time.
Remember, developing your concentration is the easiest way to develop your laser-like focus, consistency, perseverance and productivity.

Improve Your Self Confidence
Knowing yourself is the foundation of self-esteem, self confidence and personal development. Man has been seeking himself since the days of the Oracle of Delphi.

Goals - If You Don?t Know What You Want, Then How Are You Going to Get It?
Recently, I spoke with a client who wanted me to do a workshop at an upcoming conference. I offer a number of different talks, so I asked her what the focus of the meeting was in order to be able to suggest a relevant topic. She said that although the committee members had already picked several programs, they had not yet identified a focus for the conference. My first thought in response to this was, "If you don't know what you want, then how are you going to get it?" However, I am savvy enough not to insult people, so we spoke a little longer and we came up with a program that she wanted me to present.

Lessons from the First Space Strike
On Apollo 13, the crew staged the first strike in the history of space travel. The date was December 27, 1973. Mission Control had sent more commands than the crew could cope with.

"We're not going to do a thing until you get your act in better order."

Eight Steps to Taking Control of Every Situation in Your Life!
Like it or not, we are all gladiators. We go to sleep and wake up in a social arena from which there is no escape. Challenge upon challenge confronts us, walls restrain us, and a mob of spectators mocks, sneers, or cheers us. Each and every day brings new battles whether we want them or not and whether we're up to them or not. Life forces us to face one skirmish after another - no choice in the matter.

Goals ? The Forgotten Success Element
Goals are extremely important and are the key to any success plan. However, we hear about goals so much that we often take this step for granted. We assume that we already know everything there is to know about setting goals and thus usually skip over this extremely important fundamental success factor.
