Class Project

What is my biggest productivity challenge?

Lack of focus - easily distracted by thinking of new ideas and unable to execute previous ideas accordingly (within set time-frame, achieving set goals).

How does higher productivity help me in career and business?

Becoming more productive enables me to:

  • execute ideas and strategies as planned (within the stipulated deadline + achieving set goals)
  • improve relationships between me and relevant parties (friends and family, colleagues, new network etc.)

HACK #1: RECONNECT WITH YOUR WHY

Why am I doing this at the first place?

I started Commodum because I want to solve unemployment.

Why am I doing this now?

Commodum has been around for more than a year now, yet there is barely any progress aside from being the 'motivational Facebook page' it was when it started. I want to turn it into a company, then progressively try different strategies to solve unemployment.
