Essential Power Productivity Tool #3:
Big Opportunity Time
Concentration, attention, focus, in the zone, flow, optimal state — they all mean pretty much the same thing: single-minded- ness.
And in this new economy and new world order the ability to focus, concentrate and attend to one thing at a time may be the single most important skill you can develop in order to be power- fully productive.
In fact, one of the reasons so few people become power- fully productive is they don’t direct their focus.
They choose not to concentrate their power. Most medi- ocre people dabble in business and choose never to pour them- selves fully, one hundred percent, into one thing.
What Is “Big Opportunity Time”?
Big Opportunity Time is the ritual that will help you focus your efforts to get the maximum amount done during your work time.
I have been experimenting with this concept of deep alignment because I want to get a lot of things done. It is based on my experience of creating high productivity and fierce focus.
Can you remember a time when you were working and everything just seemed to flow?
When you were focused, productive, and time just seemed to flow?
If you think back it was a time when you were completely physically, mentally, and emotionally engaged.
You were enjoying your work and getting stuff done.
You were involved in what I will call the “Optimal Expe- rience” which is a physical, mental and emotional state where your skills meet your task at the perfect place.
It’s a time when you’re completely aligned with your pur- pose and at the end of the day you can say to yourself, “Today I was on purpose. Today I was really productive. Today I got the best out of me.”
So how do you do that?
How do you best package your time?
Once you have a Smart Start Morning Ritual deeply root- ed into your life and you enter into your work day, the single most important thing you can do is invest the first 90 minutes of your day on your biggest opportunity.
Big Opportunity Time is spending the first 90 minutes of
every working day with a single-minded focus on the biggest op- portunity of your business.
If you don’t know what your biggest opportunity is, you invest the first 90 minutes of your day finding the biggest oppor- tunity in your business.
There is nothing more important in your workday then the first 90 minutes.
And in that first 90 minutes you are working on the op- portunity that will give you the biggest opportunity to produce bankable results – leads, appointments, contracts, closings, and referrals.
