EPISODE TITLE: What’s The Difference Between Being Busy and Being Productive In Your Business
The GPS Trick To Business Productivity Hacks
In this episode we talk about how to see the forest through the trees. It’s no secret that every business owner is so busy they often can’t even find their butts. But, there is a simple, but brilliant technique that computer programmers figured out a long time ago that can be applied directly to your business.
The GPS Trick!
If you don’t already know, when a GPS plans a trip, it doesn’t start at the beginning and calculate every option and permutation to get to the end.
It actually starts backwards.
Because starting forward and looking at all the choices that need to be made is overwhelming. But…
If you start at the end and work backward to the beginning you can find the fastest path and the shortest distance.

Here are some other ideas to keep you on the straight and narrow…
As the son of a Fuller Brush Salesman turned middle manager, I went rogue and did the unthinkable – I got an engineering degree. Early in my career I quickly rose to leadership positions and ended up as the youngest partner of my fourth employer.
But, the itch to sell overwhelmed me and my DNA was showing up everywhere. As a young entrepreneur, I was selling my own professional services to consumers and businesses as a computer consultant to put myself through college. Then, after going into engineering, when the technical work was done for the day, I’d pinch hit for our marketing teams. This quickly became a skill as we continued to rack up the wins. I love to win and we won big!
I have been on more once-in-a-lifetime projects as technical staff, project manager or as a principal than one professional should be blessed with. I’ve worked on huge bridges, long underground train systems, and complex water resources projects. All have been won with a clever combination of words, presentation, reputation, and many ounces of technical skill.
In all this, I’ve come to appreciate making the complex simple and communicating directly to the decision makers in words they understand with benefits they appreciate. And, I love working on teams the continue to win. I know that working together will make winning faster and easier for you and I’m excited to get started on your next project.
