The 12 Principles Of Productivity

1. The Principle Of Simplicity.

2. The Principle Of Top 20 Percent.
   It is good to note that 80% of all output always comes from 20% of the inputs. This can be said in different ways.Like 80% of the wealth in the country is in the hands of 20% of the people. 80% of your success comes from 20% of your effort. 80% of your breakthroughs comes from 20% of your activities. If you can pitch your tent with those 20%, then productivity will be maximized.

3.The Principle Of Persistence.
   Many people want to become ''master'' at it the very first time they try. You cannot become a genius or an expert the first time you try. It is impossible to create a magnum opus the very first time you start.. it takes about 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert in anything. Do take note of that.

4.The Principle Of Time Allocation.
   A job can be done promptly and it can also be over stretched. The time you create to do a job determines how long that job will take to complete. You must therefore be prudent with time. Allocate time well so that waste can be avoided.

5.The Principle Of Rest.
   On the seventh day of creation, God rested from all his works. All work with no play makes jack a dull boy. Do not over stretch your body. Believe in the principle of running away today in order to be alive to fight tomorrow. Rest allows your body to recuperate.

6.The Principle Of Capacity.
   No man can do beyond what he is capable of doing except by some supernatural means. So if you want to increase your productivity, then you must build up your capacity mentally, academically and spiritually.

7.The Principle Of Sufficient Information.
   What Information do you have about what you are doing? Sufficient information and instructions must be given and received before productivity can be seriously affected. You are not limited by your ignorance.

8. The Principle Of Channels
   You may be good. Your company may have the very best of things. However, if your channel of giving out and taking in things is ineffective, your productivity will be affected. It is because of this that we unknowingly allow external forces to slow down our internal efforts.

9.The Principle Of Proportion.
   The quality of your input. ''The measure of you give shall be given back to you''. To increase your productivity therefore, you must increase your overall input.

10.The Principle Of Kind.
You produce what you are. If you want the fruit to be good, then make the tree good. 

11. The Principle Of Location.
  The magnitude of your level of production is also determined by your location. It is much more easier for an example to grow a church of 50,000 members in a city with population of 5 million than it is in a city with population of 200,000 people. It is easier to sell electric pressing Iron in a city where there is electricity than in a city with none. Your location matters.

12.The Law Of Environment.
  The type of environment you create for work is very important for productivity. What type of environment do you create in your place of work and in your home. A hostile environment will produce hostility. A romantic environment will produce romance. A spiritual environment will definitely produce spirituality.
