ELITE PerforMENce with Dr. Brad

Oct 26, 2021



We have multiple responsibilities in our work, businesses, and personal lives and it is often times struggle to get everything done. More often than not, we are only getting a portion of our tasks done…and many times it’s coming at the cost of…

  • Overwhelmed
  • Stressed
  • Being busy but not much to show for it
  • Sacrificing our family and personal lives


I’ve been there before and know what it feels like to work really hard, and really busy, but at the end of the day seems like not much actually got done.





Here is the simple key to greater productivity in work & life:




I’m talking about taking the time to think about your next best step. We often times are moving too fast to stop and think. We are running so fast that we are slowing down long enough to see if we are running in the wrong direction. What’s the benefit of speed if it’s only getting me to the wrong place faster?


Here are the steps to slowing down and planning:


  1. Take time daily to plan:
    • Think about the area of life that needs the most attention (i.e. faith, family/marriage, health, wealth, career, calling)
    • Daily: Look at that area of life and figure out what needs to be addressed daily in order to achieve your goal
    • Weekly: Take time weekly to reflect on how the prior week went and what needs to be done or tweaked this week to improve toward your goal in that area of work or life.


  1. Ask yourself questions:
    1. “What is the most effective use of my time?”
    2. “What’s the best next step I need to take to make my next step easier?”
      1. Example
    3. “What worked/didn’t work last week? How can I improve?


  1. Execute
    1. Take action after slowing down and planning
    2. Implement what you’ve discovered needs to be adjusted.





Here’s what you’ll experience if you regularly slow down and plan:

  • Less stress
  • Less overwhelmed
  • More effectiveness leading to productivity
