A productivity challenge is an excellent way for you to jumpstart your online success. I did this in 2007 when I challenged myself to write 100 articles in 100 days. I didn’t write those 100 articles in one hundred days…it only took me 78 days! I have gone on to challenge myself in many different ways since then, and the results have been fantastic.
Which areas of your life, both personal and professional, are you seeking to improve? Challenging yourself to be more productive is extremely effective. If you are just starting out online, be sure to take a look at my most recent Productivity Challenge. Many people continue to benefit from this no cost training.
If you are able to join a challenge such as this one, mark it on your calendar and do something towards it every day, you have the capability of becoming a successful entrepreneur. You are self-motivated and look inward to achieve your dreams and goals. If, on the other hand you find your mind wandering and you do not stick to your goal every day, give more thought to whether this lifestyle is best for you. Many people prefer to leave their work at the office and not think about business when they are at home or on vacation. Entrepreneurs love what they do so much they include it as a part of who they are as a human being. This is something to think about seriously, I believe.
I think of productivity as something that comes from within to help make us strive to be our best. Until I came online in 2006 I was someone who did not finish what I started much of the time, and who was not willing to go the extra mile in any area of my life. Perhaps it was my age, or my previous life experiences, but something inside of me changed drastically. I found myself having the motivation and inspiration to do my best, and soon my business was growing.
Set goals for what you want to achieve, and then review those goals every day. I find that if I set a goal that is too high, many times I will give up right away. I have learned to set a goal that is only slightly out of reach, and then I work hard to achieve it. The next time I am able to stretch even more. Do this in various areas of your life and let me know if it works for you. You deserve success, and it can be yours.

Your 21 Day Productivity Challenge is filled to the brim with awesome ideas and important action steps to take. That single post is one of the greatest resources available on any blog that I have seen! This is a topic that I am just passionate about and I love what you have done to inspire people into action. You left no stone un-turned, way to go Connie!!
I love the idea of challenging yourself to always do just a little bit more, always do better. This act will certainly be the line that separates the go getters from the talkers.
Thank you Connie, you are always an inspiration!

I plan to challenge myself to write 30 articles in 30 days, so that I can get into the habit of writing for my business. After that I should be in the writing habit. Thank you for all the valuable advice you give through your articles and posts, they point me in the right direction
