Tips for Productivity from Leaders

If it seems like more and more is added to your plate and you struggle to get everything done, you may be struggling from productivity paralysis. Don’t worry; some of the world’s top leaders face a similar problem. Inc. Magazine recently asked them how they stayed productive. Here are some of their secrets.

Larry Page: Cofounder and CEO of Google
Page found himself in too many meetings that he had no desire to be in. His solution: dump his assistant. He said that it was easy to ask his assistant to set up a meeting, but people find it harder to ask him directly, hence fewer meetings.

Richard Branson: CEO Virgin Group
When asked how he became more productive, Branson had a simple answer: work out. He said working out gave him four additional hours of productivity a day.

Stephen King: Author
While he may not be one of your typical business people, he has sold over 350 million books. He strives for consistency by trying to write at least 1,000 words a day.

Gary E. McCullough: CEO Career Education Corp.
Former United States Army captain, McCullough gives people half the time they ask for. You want an hour of his time and you will get 30 minutes. He says it forces people to be more clear and concise.
