As you know compounding, is the eighth wonder of the world. Consistent small focused efforts add up over time and eventually turn into incredible results. I believe that the addition of all these small efforts over time is the single biggest reason why some people become super achievers and others are left trapped in empty meaningless lives of overwhelm. It is because of the power of compounding, that I have searched for many years for a formula, which will help people to stay focused and able to perform at a consistently high level of performance throughout their day. After polishing this process for a number of years, I want to share what I have come up with, so that you can improve your results. I hope this simple process, will help you to gain the consistent energy, focus and productivity, which you need throughout your life to build the success you desire and deserve.

The first crucial aspect necessary to ensure that you have the energy and persistence, needed to sustain your performance throughout your day, is a connection to a meaningful purpose. When you have something bigger than yourself to focus on achieving and you live in a modality of “How can I serve greatly”, you are connected to a higher purpose. This energy, enthusiasm, drive and passion will help inspire you and help you to stay focused and task centric. This sense of purpose allows you to feel like you matter and will be visible to the people around you. This will then result in a sense of love, connection and meaning, which will flow from everyone around you. This will equip you to connect with your community allowing you to feel a constant charge and drive to succeed.

Secondly, you need to become aware and strive to be present, as you tackle each task. This means that you must be completely engaged and 100 % emotionally present in everything you do. When you are fully invested in the moment, it feels like there is both a push and pull of energy, which seems to inspire you throughout your day. This will help you to focus all your energy on completing only a single task at a time. You will never engage in any practices, which allow you to become distracted, thus stopping you from completing each individual task, before tackling the next one.

Action Idea: Examine your ability to remain present throughout your day. When you are next engaged in completing any task, rate yourself on a scale of 1 -10, as to the level of complete focus or presence you are exhibiting in the moment. “One” being, I am completely distracted and my attention is everywhere, “ten” being I am completely present and 100 % focused on completing that task, I allow nothing to distract me. Constantly measure you presence and focus throughout the day, if you are consistently achieving ratings, below a 7 or 8, you need to invest time into becoming more focused in the moment. When you are able to become completely present and focused on completing tasks, throughout your day, you actually get things done, you avoid overwhelm and the tasks you manage to complete, compound over time and add up into super achievement.

Thirdly, invest time into ensuring that you are powering the vessel, which provides you with energy and the ability to achieve greatness, namely your body, with sufficient rest and hydration. Unless you are getting sufficient sleep every night, where you actually get to switch off and regenerate and recharge your batteries, you will not have sufficient energy to perform at a high level throughout your day. When you are energised and your batteries are adequately charged every day, you will be focused and driven throughout your day.

Action Idea: Plan your day the night before and ensure that you know when you will tackle any issue the next day, which may be worrying you. This certainty, will allow you to switch off and to focus on being present in the moment, i.e. you will be able to rest when you sleep, rather than tossing and turning as you worry all night. Try to get a minimum of 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep every night.
Fourthly, learn to understand who you are and what drives and inspires you. When you are authentic and live in congruence with who you really are, you equip yourself to live your truth. This continuity, which comes from living according to who you really are, allows you to be your authentic self and makes everything you do seem effortless.

Action Idea: Pick three words that you feel define who you are as a person. These words must resonate with you and define your identity and describe who you really are. What is that authentic self, the real you? The three words I have chosen for myself are driven, bold and inspired. Choose your words carefully and every time you tackle any task throughout your day, ask yourself if you are exhibiting these characteristics. If you have chosen your three words properly, then if you are not acting in alignment with your words, you are not being authentic and as such your energy will soon fade and disappear. Keep massaging the words you choose, until you get a perfect fit. Once you have discovered the words that best describe you and you consistently measure each task against these words, you are acting congruent with your highest self and will feel driven and energised throughout your day.

Finally, choose your three most important priorities every day and ensure that your head does not touch the pillow each night until these priorities are completed. These priorities must obviously be focused on achieving a specific outcome that day. When you have a single mission each day and you centre your day on achieving that mission, you equip yourself to get the right things done. Focus on completing these priority tasks and challenge and stretch yourself every day. When I say stretch yourself, I am not talking about stretching yourself to the point of overwhelm. I mean stretch yourself to a level, where you perform at your optimum. Focus on your mission each day and try to accomplish everything you need to do each day at the right pace.

When you bring these five new concepts into your life, you will see a remarkable improvement in your drive, determination and you will feel energised throughout your day. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain. Give these ideas a whirl, what if it is just these few new ideas, which completely change your life and put you on the fast track to success.
