Productive Environment. To create a productive environment, your agency needs three key ingredients.
Ingredient #1- CULTURE.
Watch here to learn that culture is NOT bowling parties and sales contests. Culture is a focus on productivity and clear values and standards.

Agents look to get the most productivity for themselves and their team often neglect their environment. Design a Productive Environment and it will shape your team's results.
In the next few weeks, we will cover 3 elements of a powerful Productive Environment:

We've discussed two dimensions of your new at-home work environment which you can almost completely control. There is one dimension which is not in your control and will require you to negotiate for a more productive work environment--People!
That's right, the people you live with are now the people you work with.
Here are three questions to have a conversation to create a more productive work environment:
1. What do they need from you?
2. What do you need from them?
3. When will you have this discussion?
Get started today creating a better work environment for you and a better home environment for your whole household.
TIME stands as the second critical dimension of working from home. To better invest your time and remain productive in the minutes and hours you dedicate to work, AUDIT your time today.

How did auditing your time change your productivity working from home?
The speed of time has changed these last few weeks! Slowed down or sped up, we don't seem to be able to manage it the same way as before.
Here are three ways to take control of the second of three key dimensions of working from home.
How are you taking better control of your time?
"Measure your success not by the results, but by the right actions."
Once you go "to work," you need to know what actions to take. Simplify your work life by writing down a simple action plan. Just 3 things you do each day that define a successful work day.
Hear how one agent I work with defines a successful day during the quarantine.
What are the three things you choose to do each day to define a successful work day?
To work effectively from home, you will need a dedicated space which communicates to your mind and body that this is where you work. This allows you to be more productive "at work" and more present "at home".
Would you share a photo of the workspace you have created for yourself during the quarantine?
Yesterday I spent 6 hours on coaching calls with agents from Alaska to Texas and 4 other states. Every single one described their challenge of working from home.
"I am not productive"
"I don't feel successful" (Those things are different)
"My house is too distracting"
"I don't know how to work at home"
This week we are going to cover 3 critical dimensions to working successfully at home as well as 3 specific practices to master this week.
Your work domains are:
Master these and your work environment will make it nearly impossible to fail.

Here is a recording of my conversation on The Daily Compass from March 19th.
I haven't posted a video in a while. I've been locked in my office writing a new book! Here's a sneak preview of what's to come.
Have you ever had a day FILLED with activity, but ending with the feeling that you didn't accomplish anything?
It's a day just like this that lead me to write a new book due out May 2020: Do What Matters Today!
I believe that long hours or hard work are not what leave you and me exhausted. It's futility! Activity without accomplishment. Perspiration without purpose. Movement without meaning.
In this new book, I cover three areas to have more days filled with what matters most.
