These relatively simple practices are fairly easy to put into place and can literally change the way you practice counseling, grow your business, and achieve stable mindsets for a highly productive day.

Productivity and efficiency are often terms that show up in corporate America or the coaching culture. Rarely, do we discuss these terms in therapy circles in regards to mood stability and mental health. However, productivity habits when done “right” often minimize negative coping patterns that result in addictions, dependencies and mood fluctuations. When productivity is defined as engaging in tasks that are most meaningful and purposeful we can “hack” our behaviors to optimize our brain to stay on task in a clear and balanced way.

In this episode, Keith shares 3 productivity hacks that has helped him stay on task, focus with more clarity as a clinician, and achieve as a mission-oriented entrepreneur. By using these hacks for yourself or your clients, you can also achieve more results in less time while feeling energized at the end of the day.
