Not sure if you should get a coach? Read this…

It never ceases to amaze me how the most successful people tend to hire a coach and even multiple coaches while people who are not successful do not.

And this latter group tends not to improve either. Or, if they do, it’s a prolonged process.

The first coach I ever hired was a Tony Robbins Results Coach.

That coach told me something that astounded me: Tony has not one or two but several coaches.

And I remember how blown away I was about that.

Then I started thinking about how professional athletes get and stay at the top of their…


Make these habits the norm in your life

There are a lot of moving parts to become a more productive person.

In this article, I share five of them.

What you won’t find on this list are excuses, complaining, blaming, laziness, or bright shiny object syndrome.

Implementing each of these habits into your life will dramatically make you a more productive person.

Let’s go…

PEOPLE YOU HANG AROUND

The late Charlie “Tremendous” Jones used to say, “In five years, you’ll be the same person you are today except for the books you read and the people you meet.”

People called Charlie “Tremendous” because he called everyone else tremendous. …


Anyone can do any of these and change their lives

Complexity is the gateway to procrastination ~ Mark Struczewski

In this article, I lay out ten simple ways to be more productive starting right now.

While each of these ideas is simple…that doesn’t mean that they're easy to do. There is a difference.

Don’t get overwhelmed.

Just pick one that resonates with you and begin to implement it into your life.

Then come back and pick another one.

Step by step by step.

You’ve got this.

Let’s do this.

1. GET OUT OF BED

The moment your eyes open — whether naturally or with the aid of an alarm clock (I love the way the…


The truth will set you free.

Have you ever reached the end of your day and wondered, “what did I do today?”

You obviously did something…but what?

Most people, but not you after reading this article, operate in reactive mode.

In other words, they are busy reacting to things happening instead of proactively doing what they need/want to do.

ARE YOU PLAYING WHAC-A-MOLE?

This carnival game was created in 1975 in Japan. A typical Whac-A-Mole machine consists of a waist-level cabinet with a play area and display screen and a large, soft, black mallet. Five holes in the play area top are filled with small plastic moles, which pop up…


Here’s what to do instead

Do any of these statements sound familiar to you? Have you ever uttered or thought any of them?

“I can’t wait” to:

  • start a podcast
  • create a course
  • write a book
  • make my first sale
  • start making a profit in my business
  • learn how to be a speaker
  • flip my first house
  • create my app
  • start a YouTube channel
  • learn a new language
  • fill-in-the-blank

INSTEAD OF WAITING…

DO!

Do what?

Anything. (Well, not anything!)

I once heard Tony Robbins say it’s better to move in the wrong direction rather than not moving at all.

At least you’re moving.

If you’re headed in the…


Everyone procrastinates. Yes, everyone!

If you’re a human being alive on this planet, you procrastinate.

And just so we’re on the same page, according to Google, procrastination is defined as “delay or postpone action; put off doing something.”

Have you ever delayed doing something? Put off what you really needed to do?

Of course, you have.

We all have.

Even me, Mister Productivity.

The question then becomes: how much do you do procrastinate?

High performers and those naturally productive tend to procrastinate far less than others and usually on minor things.

But it’s still procrastination.

Whether you are an infrequent or every day (all…


I’m known as Mister Productivity

Hey there! I’m Mark Struczewski! Also known as Mister Productivity.

Born and raised in North Chili, New York (a western suburb of Rochester), I moved to Houston, Texas, in July 1997 (no more snow, YAY!).

My obsession in life is to help YOU become a more productive version of yourself.

But before I tell you how I do that, let me share with you how I got into the wonderful world of productivity.

IT ALL STARTED WHEN I WAS FIRED

In July 2005, I was fired from my job as an inventory control coordinator at a local hospital. I didn’t like what I was doing. It was a drag.

As I reflect on this date in my…


I’ve known my 24-year-old daughter longer than my 27-year-old daughter.

How is it possible that I’ve known my 24-year-old daughter longer than my 27-year-old daughter?

My 27-year-old is still alive and well.

Or so I’ve been told from my younger daughter.

I am proud of and love both of my daughters.

However, August 12, 2007, was the last time I saw my oldest.

To this day, I still don’t know why.

But let me take you back.

My daughters are two of the blessings from my first marriage, which ended in divorce in 2002.

Growing up, my daughters and I were very close. I was their world.

I doted on…


It’s easier than you think!

Getting healthy is a choice.

No one is going to force you to make better choices when it comes to your health.

But understand that every choice you make, good or bad, has consequences.

Make healthy choices, and those consequences could include longer life, vibrancy, and a lower chance of dementia.

However, making unhealthy choices could result in a shortened life with pain, listlessness, and dementia.

Here are eight things you can do to become a healthier you.

I love my Apple Watch because it helps me stay healthy. …


I fought being an early riser for years.

I’m a member of the 5 am Club. And have been since February 4, 2020.

But it took me nearly 55 years to join!

I heard quotes such as these over and over again:

  • “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
  • “Lose an hour in the morning, and you will be all day hunting for it.” ~ Richard Whately
  • “It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth, and wisdom.” ~ Aristotle
  • “The opportunity that God sends does not wake up him who is…
