Productivity Coach’s Corner: Ask Better Questions

Don't ask, “Where did the time go?” Instead, change your focus today, and be more productive tomorrow.

Today, have you asked, “Where did the time go?” Each day, 1,440 minutes go by. Asking that question probably won’t make you more productive tomorrow.

Do you want to get more done? Change your questions, change your life.

Reflect on your interactions at work one day last week. Ask better questions and watch your collaboration and productivity soar. Here are some to get you started:

  • “Who is waiting for me to send an update, and what can I tell them tomorrow?”
  • “30 days from now, what will I wish I started working on sooner?”

Change your focus today, and be more productive tomorrow.
