Work From Home? Struggle to Get Things Done? Here’s How to Double Your Output, While Working Fewer Hours

More people than ever work from home. Students, freelancers, entrepreneurs and remote workers all have the luxury of being able to set their own hours. That should make them far more productive, right?

Wrong. Working from home can make being productive harder, not easier.

A good friend of mine quit his job to start a business. Except now he’s working more than ever, putting in 12-hour days just to keep his new venture afloat. Despite the fear of failing at his dream, he confided in me that he still procrastinates far more than he should.

I know a student who has complete control over his hours. Luxury, right? Not a chance. He struggles under an 80-hour workload and can’t seem to keep up. He’s failing his classes, but he doesn’t know how to work harder.

A third friend works from home, but she can’t seem to motivate herself to work hard. She knows that she’ll never be able to build a successful client base unless she gets more work done, but she can’t seem to get more than a few hours of work done each day.

These people are just a few examples of a larger problem: when you have the ability to control your hours, it can often make the burden to be productive, harder, not easier.

But there are counterexamples. I also know people who earn hundreds of thousands of dollars per year, working only a few hours per day. Another friend of mine works only two hours a day at a full-time job, and he is so valued by his employer that they recently doubled his salary. I know students who breeze through hard course loads, because they get everything done on time without any fuss.

Who Would You Rather Be?

Imagine if you could wake up and get all the work you need to get done by noon. You could spend the afternoon relaxing, or work even harder to improve your career or business.

Imagine if you didn’t have to struggle to get yourself to do the work you need to accomplish. You wouldn’t procrastinate, the work would just get done with automatic effort.

The difference between the two types of examples I mentioned earlier is that the people with effortless productivity have a different mindset and tools for being productive.

How You Think About Work is Broken

The problem is that most of us are stuck in the industrial age of working. We base our model of what is most productive on what worked for factory employees over a hundred years ago.

The nature of work has changed dramatically since that time. If you work from home, your working environment doesn’t remotely resemble a factory. So why do you continue to work as if you’re still on the assembly line?

I’ve spend thousands of hours exploring different productivity systems, but I’ve found that most of them make a fatal flaw. They assume you’re stuck working in a normal office environment with a 40-hour work week. They can’t take advantage of the additional flexibility that you get from working at home. Worse, they can’t accommodate the dangers that working at home can create in procrastination and distraction.

A New Way of Working

I want to suggest an alternative. This is a different model of working, but one that I’ve found enormously successful both for myself and the thousands of students I’ve had a chance to share it with. It works incredibly well whether you’re self-employed, work remotely or are a student.

Even if you do work from an office, this system can still help you make tremendous improvements in how you manage your time outside the office.

This system is based on output, not hours. That way you’re optimizing yourself to get work done, not simply sit at a desk for a specified number of hours.

This system is based on energy management, not time management. People procrastinate and struggle to get work done when they fail to properly manage all facets of their energy. The system I’ll teach you will allow you to organize your energy effectively, so you get all your work done without guilt or stress.

This system is based on knowledge work, not the factory model. That means it successfully handles the challenges of creative work, helping you maximize your productivity, when you need to deal with creative blocks and tough problem solving.

What if This System Doesn’t Work For Me?

I’ve developed and tested this system with thousands of people, but if it doesn’t work for you, there’s absolutely no risk in trying it out. I offer a complete 60-day money-back guarantee to anyone who gets this guide.

Instead of the risk of trying it out, consider the risk of continuing to use the current system you have. The cost of low productivity, procrastination and burn out can equal thousands of dollars in lost business, missed clients or failed classes. The real risk is continuing with the status quo.

Get the guide now and save yourself thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours in lost productivity.
