The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity®
Increase focus and productivity.
Before, we made only a few important decisions a day. Nowadays, due to limitless information and instant communication, we’re forced to make dozens of decisions on a daily basis. We don’t take time to consider the value of each decision, we just react. Meanwhile, the decisions that matter most pass us by.
02Attention is Under Attack
After just three minutes of work time, the average office worker is distracted. The human brain is wired for distraction, and our need to react will overwrite our ability to think. The age of physical labor has made way for an age of mental labor. And right when we need our minds the most, our ability to think is under attack.
03Low Energy Crisis
The pressure we’re experiencing to make the right decisions while our attention is under attack, exhausts us. We show up at work feeling burned out and disengaged. We want to give our best, but are unable to do so.
Instead of focusing on getting everything done, we need to focus on getting the right things done without burning out. Time management alone will not suffice. To reach your goals in both your business and your personal life, you must achieve decision management, attention management, and energy management.
Otherwise, we’ll continue to be buried alive.
Attention, Energy, and Decision Management
In The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity, timeless principles are combined with current neuroscientific research to help better manage decisions, attention, and energy so you’ll consistently make choices with the biggest return on time.
01Choice 1: Act on the Important; Don’t React to the Urgent

02Choice 2: Go For Extraordinary; Don’t Settle for Ordinary
How to direct your decision-making through a framework of what success looks like in the most important roles you hold right now.
03Choice 3: Schedule the Big Rocks, Don’t Sort Gravel
Tips and tools for weekly and daily planning to execute with excellence on the most important things.
04Choice 4: Rule Your Technology; Don’t Let it Rule You
Need we say more? Let technology work for you, and not against you. Make a productivity engine of your technology.
05Choice 5: Fuel Your Fire, Don’t Burn Out
Simple yet vital ways to increase energy so you can think clearly, make good decisions, and feel more accomplished at the end of each day.
This week I have done my… third ‘Covey 5 Choices workshop’! Every time with a different team I lead, and every time I get new insights. I keep proposing this workshop to my teams, as it provides a good combination of high-level (self)reflections and extremely valuable operational tools to apply in our everyday (working) life.
