2pm Increase Productivity via Focus & Execution (Arlene Drysdale)

EXECUTION is what it takes to be Great. It is not knowledge & intellect, strategies & ideas, and it is not who you know.

Our thinking drives our actions, and our actions create our results.

Vision is the starting point of all high performance. It’s where we start to succeed or fail. It’s the “why”.

12-week planning has greater predictability, it’s more focused, and it’s structured for implementation.

Benefits of process control (tools and events that help us keep working especially when-we don’t feel like it).

Importance of score-keeping (the feedback mechanism and the anchor of reality).

How to control your time so you control the results.

Importance of accountability (It empowers you to get more of what you want in life).

it’s necessary to work with both your personal commitments – the promises you make to yourself – and your commitment to others – your word.

Why greatness is created in the moment.
