We have covered many ways on how to add value to your organization. This includes becoming a more valuable employee by becoming more productive and working on the highest priority tasks.
We will now cover a Success Action Plan which can help you implement the actions so that you can become a more valuable employee.
You can start with a blank piece of paper and write down what you would like to achieve – your ideal job, career, contract and salary.
Next write down the actions you will take. We will now recap the key action you can take to become a more effective, productive and valuable employee, and we will then recap key strategies for adding value to your organization, along with guidelines on how to use the Wealth Conditioning Audio.
When thinking about your goals, it’s important to focus on building the new rather than fighting the old. Focus all your attention on building what you would like to achieve, and you will achieve success faster.
A helpful quote from Lou Tice of the Pacific Institute is to “Measure from where you want to be to where you are now, not from where you started”. This is a great quote and one which shows you that you are already closer than you think.
We covered how one of the most effective ways to become more productive is to use The 6 Steps Method developed by Ivy Lee and outlined by Earl Nightingale.
Whereby you make a list of tasks which need to be completed, then to re-write the list of tasks in the order of importance. The first list can have more than 6 tasks on, but when writing the second list there should be a maximum list of 6 tasks, listed in order of importance.
This method alone can help you make huge progress at great speed, as you are always working on the most important task at any moment in time.
We have also covered ideas and strategies for additional ways to add value to your organization. There are many strategies, but in fact you can achieve your goal simply by working more effectively and implementing the 6 Steps Method. These additional strategies are bonus ideas, and you can simply choose one idea to look at – there is no need to implement a long list of strategies as this could be overwhelming.
You should always make sure your responsibilities are fully taken care of before you start any new projects, and it’s always best to discuss ideas with your boss before spending any time on activities, especially if they are not within your remit currently. Discuss your ideas and suggestions and see if you can find a way forward. Don’t ask about a pay raise at this point, focus on increasing your value first.

When you are ready to listen to your audio, you should listen to this daily, ideally in the morning and evening for 15 – 30 minutes. If you only have time to listen once a day you can do this, but for the best results listen to the Wealth Conditioning audio twice per day. The audio is relaxing so you should not listen to this while driving or operating machinery. If you have any medical conditions such as epilepsy you should consult with your physician first.
