There’s a difference between being busy and being productive.
In my experience, busyness leads to…
…ending the day, feeling like you didn’t get anything that mattered done.
…moving that IMPORTANT to-do to tomorrow (again)
…making the same money you were last year (and scratching your head wondering – “How is this possible? I’ve been working so HARD”)
Productive is different.
…being productive creates results that matter (to you) in all areas of your life.
…being productive allows you to get home and be present with your wife and kids (because you did what was required)
…being productive allows you to fill the vaults with stacks of cash because instead of working hard, you’re being effective.
If you’re anything like how I was…
I didn’t have a fucking clue how to get out of BUSY and into being PRODUCTIVE.
I tried all kinds of planners, diaries, even hired a coach on 90-day planning…
But as Einstien said
“We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them”
And what these “systems” didn’t account for was the MAN who was filling them in…
So it’s no surprise businessmen find themselves crossing off to-dos that make them feel good…
But when it comes down to REAL results…
They hardly move the needle forward…
Even if they’ve tried productivity hacks, tools and whatever else.
Which is why we use a tool called THE PILLARS
Inside The Powerful Man, we have the saying “WE PRODUCE WITH THE PILLARS”
Think of the pillars as a way to get a different perspective.
Something that gives you the ability to accomplish more in 12 weeks than most married businessmen can pull off in 12 months.
When you consider all the different kinds of bullshit a married businessman can step into…
…being busy instead of being productive is extremely common.
And it can lead down some dark paths.
Which is why I encourage men to use the pillars, a powerful strategy to steer clear of never-ending to-do lists and busyness that causes more chaos than cash.
