5 Things I know about ... Being productive during the fall season

As the nights get longer and the morning air gets a bit crisper, you may be tempted to pull out that blanket and begin hibernation season. Unfortunately, as business leaders, we can't afford to fall behind. Here are five strategies to accelerate your productivity during the fourth quarter and maximize those daylight hours. As the leaves start to fall, let’s ensure you continue to sprout.

5) Channel your energy. Do you have a boost of energy at 5 a.m. and can't fall back asleep? Consider using that time before the rooster starts crowing to check off that significant action item on your to-do list. You'll feel accomplished, and this will help set a productive tone for the rest of the day.

4) Have an abundance mindset. It's harvest season, so it's time to capitalize on all the preparation you've been doing. This is your opportunity to maximize on achieving the goals you set last season. Timing is everything! Speak your goals into existence, and ensure they come to fruition this autumn.

3) Collaborate. Fall is a time for unity, not just with family and friends but with potential business partners. Develop a robust emotional intelligence to identify critical collaborators who can help you grow this season.

2) Have a thirst for knowledge. What causes the leaves to change colors? Embrace curiosity and ask key questions. Identify problems and develop solutions to bring value to your community and your business.

1) Discover tactics to destress. After fall comes winter, and just like the change of seasons, there is a time to grind and a time to rest. After a long productive day, find strategies to help you unwind. Work-life harmony will look a bit different for everyone. What are some ways you reward yourself after an arduous day to recharge?

At Quality Means Business, we anticipate scaling over the next few months by adding automated systems and an IT footprint.
