Do a quick search for “productivity” in Google. You’ll get millions of blog posts, infographics and videos promising to help you squeeze MORE into your day.

You’ll find an endless series of hacks, habits and rituals. Each one carefully crafted to help you plow through your day like there’s no tomorrow. But then tomorrow DOES come. And you do it all again. Plus some.


Is adding another item to your to-do list going to be the difference that makes the difference? Do we need to move even faster? Do even more?

I don’t think so. Not even close.

After all, there will always be another to-do to add to your list. There’s always going to be another blog post you could write. Another instagram pic to post. Tweets to tweet. Snaps to snap. And whatever comes next.

Not to mention interviews, books to write, funnels to build, events to host and more.

Oh wait. What about that pesky family of yours? I guess we should squeeze them in too, yeah? And friends. Or a vacation. Remember those?

Can you ever get it ALL done?

The Real Secret of Getting It All Done

Would you like to know the real secret of “getting it all done”?

It’s actually quite simple. Do less.

Paradoxical? Unconventional? Yes and yes. That’s why it works. After all, conventional wisdom only leads to conventional results.

Look, you can be as busy as you want. You can become a master at checking tasks off your to-do list. But that’s not what matters. Because it’s not about the tasks.

In fact, I believe 90% of what you’re doing on a daily basis could be eliminated. Forever.

But how do you know which 90% to eliminate? THAT is a question worth answering.

Two To-Do List Clearing Questions

There are two questions you can use to eliminate items from your to-do list BEFORE they ever make it to the list. These questions can save you hours, even weeks, of pointless busy work.

Question #1

What are the one or two things you need to do today to move you toward your biggest outcomes?

This question keeps you focused on your biggest goals. In order to be truly productive, not just busy, you must stay focused on your MAJOR outcomes.

Be radically honest with yourself.

Are the items on your to-do list moving you closer to your BIGGEST, most important outcomes?

Or, is your to-do list full of busy work so you don’t have to confront the actual work that will move you forward?

Not sure? Try…

Question #2

How can I X without Y?

In this case, “X” is your BIG outcome. “Y” are the tasks you think you need to do or tasks you don’t want to do.

For example…

How do I increase my income to $25,000 per month without blogging or posting on social media?

Another example…

How do I consistently attract my ideal client without relying on referrals or luck?

This “How do I X without Y?” question forces you to re-think what you’re doing. AND what’s actually possible.

Again, this requires you know yourself and what YOU really want to achieve.

By getting very clear on your outcomes and what you DO NOT want to do, you can eliminate 90% of the busy-work tasks on your to-do list.

At Clients on Demand we’ve used these two questions to create a radically simple system to attract, convert and serve our ideal clients.

It’s an approach that keeps our to-do list to a minimum. And yet, our business continues to grow at record pace.

This radically simple system allows us, and our clients, to hit our biggest outcomes in three key areas:

— Income in the top 1% of our industry

— Impact through lives transformed

— Lifestyle freedom to do what we want when we want

So listen, if your to-do list keeps getting longer but you’re no closer to your goals, then maybe it’s time for a change.

We’ve put together a special training where we reveal the system our clients are using to…

…Go from total unknowns to 6 and 7-figure earners’ while staying true to their mission and making an amazing impact on the world…

…Serve their clients in just a few hours per week, working remotely from anywhere in the world…

…Stop blogging, podcasting, and content marketing and instead implement a simple 4-step process to make high-ticket sales every day…

…Take a prospect from ‘click to client’ in less than 24–48 hours, while charging $3,000 to 10,000 or more…

AND to do it all while making the world a better place than it is now!
