6 Inspiring Productivity Quotes to Help You Get The Most Out Of Your Time.



This classic productivity quote is, of course, about getting right the first time.  Going back to redo your work is frustrating, disappointing and can even be emotionally draining.

On top of that, it represents a lost opportunity cost. Not only do you have to do it again, but you could also have been doing something else of value with that time to help you get ahead!



This leads us neatly to our next quote from John Zimmerman. 

We’ve all heard people say ‘But I just don’t have enough time’. The problem with feeling this way is it can encourage us to rush.  

Taking the extra time to organize ourselves for the tasks ahead actually saves time in the long run. Before starting any work make sure you think through the task ahead, get everything you need at hand to deliver against it, and organize it in a way that easy and accessible. 



We procrastinate when we feel the task is too difficult or overwhelming.  So if you can crack the first two points above, you’ll be well on your way to reducing this significantly.  Planning ahead helps us see a way through the complexity, and breaks our tasks down into more achievable parts. 


Ultimately, procrastination is robbing us of time that we could be spending in more enjoyable ways… like relaxing in the sun!  Get organized, work smart, then go out and play!




Ok, so this probably wasn’t a quote about productivity (more likely a deep intellectual insight into the nature of time), but we still love it! Think about it... the future happens one day at a time, so let's take advantage of that! 



Another fantastic quote that speaks to the theme of this post.  

We don’t always realize we’re wasting time.  Sometimes worrying about a problem can sap our energy and motivation to do something about it.  Ironic or what? 

TOAD® Tip: Next time you find yourself doing this simply try and become aware of it. If you can recognize when it's happening, you’ll be half way there to solving it! 


So that concludes our productivity quotes for today…. we hope you’ve found them inspiring and useful.

We’re going to leave you with this age-old classic from 65 BC. Seize the day, go on.. go for it!
