The Extreme Productivity IQ Matrix explores what it takes to upgrade how you work to boost performance and results. Extreme productivity is about working more efficiently, about improving your execution skills, about compressing the amount of time it takes you to do something, and about effectively managing your energy levels throughout the day. Check off all four boxes and you will experience vastly improved results. In other words, you will get far more done in far less time than ever before.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Extreme Productivity IQ Matrix:
- Improve Efficiency: The first branch of this map breaks down how to improve your efficiency throughout the day. Efficiency is all about focusing on doing the right things, at the right time, and in the right way. It’s about effectively filtering out distractions to help you get more done in less time.
- Improve Execution: The second branch of this map focuses on improving your execution skills. Execution is all about working as efficiently as possible to get as much accomplished in the time frames you have allocated to certain tasks and activities. The better you execute, the more you are likely to accomplish within a given time period.
- Squeeze Time: The third branch of this map discusses how to squeeze time. To squeeze time means compressing time in ways that help you work far more efficiently throughout the day. This is just as much a mindset as it is a technique for working more productively. When you squeeze time you naturally work faster with more urgency and efficiency. And this, of course, helps accelerate your results and boost your performance.
- Manage Your Energy: The final branch of this map walks you through the importance of managing your energy levels. Energy management is the key to extreme productivity. If you neglect your energy or don’t manage it appropriately, you will fail to work at peak levels of focus and concentration. As a result, your performance will suffer.
As you work through this map, you will progressively discover what it takes to develop the habit of extreme productivity. Through consistent application of these ideas into your workday, you will experience significant improvements in the results you are able to generate throughout the day.
