I recently interviewed Vincent Harris the author of a new Tremendous Life Book publication entitled “The Productivity Epiphany“. In my interview with Vincent we discuss the many different topics addressed in this wonderful book, but most importantly we focus in on what keep us from being more productive.
As Vincent states in the forward to his new book ” It’s the greatest challenge we all face: getting ourselves to do things we want to do, but we can’t get past the inertia to build momentum…to actually do those things. I think that all of us understands the inertia that frequently keep us from reaching our human potential, and in “The Productivity Epiphany” the author provides us with easy thought provoking ideas to have us shift our behavior and thoughts. Vincent states “we are being invited to consider an alternative”, and I love this approach because he is not telling us to act or do something in a certain way.
In my dialogue with Vincent we discuss how we frequently make comparisons to self and other, and how in so doing we are incisively creating a no win situation. You see if we constantly use comparisons to others there is always going to be someone who is better, stronger, has more money etc. But when we make self-to-self comparisons we can look at how we are improving from month to month, year to year and this is a much better comparison to make in developing a positive mental attitude.
Vincent’s book is an easy read and complete with thought provoking stories and ideas to assist the reader in having more epiphanies about their work and life. Albert Einstein once said that ” a problem cannot be solved on the same level that is exists.” If you keep this statement in mind, then you are going to love reading Vincent’s book. You will be taken on a journey of exploration that will shift your thoughts and ultimately behaviors associated with how you are approaching life and work as you know it today.
