💡 My Hack to Staying Productive + The Biggest Stories of the Week

The Weekly with Fred Schebesta #31: 💡My Hack to Staying Productive + The Biggest Stories of the Week

I was recently asked a question about how I organise my day to stay productive and ensure I’m not just doing “busy work”. 

I didn’t respond straight away because I was sticking to my hack. I use this hack every single day to keep me focused and get sh!t done. If I didn’t do this every day I don’t think I would achieve anything.

It’s super simple but it takes great discipline and ruthless prioritisation.

All you have to do is focus on your goals each day. Make these goals your single-minded focus. Do everything else after these goals have been achieved.

Try it out and let me know if it helps you increase your productivity.

3 Ways Executive Leaders Can Cultivate a High-Performance Team

  • In Entrepreneur.com this week, the biggest story was by Tim Madden who writes about 3 key things leaders need to do to cultivate a high-performing team. In a nutshell, these were:
  • 1. Support and train your team: “The more your team understands growth and areas of improvement, the more they can implement training that helps build a business.”
  • 2. Hire based on where your company is going: “The goal is growth, and to grow, you'll need to put the systems and team members in place that could foster change at the next levels.”
  • 3. Be intentional about leading through consistent growth: If you're going to foster and cultivate a team committed to your company's growth, you must be intentional about your consistent growth.”
  • Each of these 3 things are super key to building and scaling a business. They’re a recipe for success!

  • How did they do it? They worked smarter: shortened meetings or replacing with emails, cut out unnecessary tasks and rearranging shifts.

Single. Earth to link carbon credits to crypto token market, raises $7.9M from EQT Ventures

  • Mike Butcher on TechCrunch writes Single.Earth raised $7.9 million in seed funding to “tokenise nature” by using MERIT tokens to replace carbon credits.
  • “It plans to build a ‘digital twin’ of nature that reveals how much any area of ecological significance in the world absorbs CO2 and retains biodiversity.
  • “Companies, organisations, and eventually individuals will be able purchase these tokens and own fractional amounts of natural resources, rewarded with carbon and biodiversity offsets.”
