The Modern Business Owner Has To Be More Efficient With Their Time Than Ever Before.
-Keith Lloyd, CEO The Business Surgeon
And you can crank up your productivity and GET MORE DONE in 1 WEEK than you used to in 1 month.
From the desk of Michael Bridgman - Sitting on the curbside outside my store, under a grey, overcast sky, I stared blankly at the passing traffic. From the outside perspective I probably looked exhausted, burnt out and clueless. It turns out I WAS.
Not that long before this exact moment I'd spent the money ($1000) to purchase another course from another guru, this time it was on 'productivity'...the science of achieving more with less effort. A few years even before that I'd begun the journey of personal development. I like the term evolution, sounds cooler to me!
It made sense to me that to become better 'in' my business I needed to become better 'at' my business and that meant I needed to improve my skills. So investing into me had become a normal habit for me. But, something wasn't working.
No matter how much money and time I spent, no matter how many seminars and webinars I was in, I was still struggling to find my flow, struggling to find a harmony between work and life.
Have you ever felt that way?
Felt like no matter who you're listening to or what you're putting into practice the pieces just aren't fitting together?
It's like tow different puzzles that are the same shape but different pictures. No matter how well things are fitting together the picture just doesn't match?
That's how I felt too.
And, sitting on that curb it hit me. I kept trying on someone else's clothes!
I'd been spending all this time and energy and money chasing down the skills and habits and tools and techniques and secrets from all these other people, who weren't me.
They were teaching the things that worked for them. They were teaching the skills, the habits, the tools, the techniques and the secrets that worked for them...but that didn't mean they'd work for me.
No wonder I was frustrated.
I was practicing all these things that didn't necessarily suit me. In other words I was copying what the greats were doing, rather than 'modelling' what they were practicing.
See, each and everyone one of these fantastic people that I've had the privilege of learning from: Mel Robbins, Dean Graziosi, Tom Bilyeu, Tony Robbins, Marie Forleo, Seth Godin, Tim Ferris, Les Brown, Bob Proctor, Jon Talarico, Anik Singal, Robert Kiyosaki, Colin Sprake, Darren Hardy and many more all taught their way...
But, I was till frustrated and overwhelmed in my business, so what if there wasn't MY WAY?
What if what they were doing just didn't fit me?
What if there was another way...a unique way?
I started to envision a 'recipe' book of all the different concepts and ideas I'd discovered over my years of study on how to be MORE PRODUCTIVE.
And, like every good entrepreneur where I saw a need, I saw a solution.
That's when I decided to start putting together this book. The book you're about to get delivered to your inbox is the culmination of many years of study, many months of compilation and many decades of failures and wins.
This book is designed to help you uncover a wide range of different productivity shortcuts, not ones that just work for me or just work for another guru. In fact, many of these shortcuts don't work for me at all, but that doesn't meant they won't be perfect for you...so they're in the book.
My hope is that this book serves as a valuable 'pantry' of ideas and tips and secrets and shortcuts on how to get more done in less time so that you can get back to doing more of the things you love to do and spending more time with those you love to spend time with.
Because remember, Productivity isn't about getting more done, it's about getting more time. How you do it, is your own recipe.
