Working with thousands of women in business each year, I often hear that they are overwhelmed by the amount they need to get through and that they fight each day to stay on top of their to-dos. Their dream to create a great business are thwarted by an overflowing inbox, or too many things to focus on. In this interview, Graham Allcott provides effective ideas on managing productivity and we look at: • Ruthlessness - how to be ruthless with yourself • Stealth and camouflage - how to stop your time from being hijacked • Mindfulness - the role of the mind in procrastination and productivity • How to do email like a ninja • Why mono-tasking beats your best multitasking efforts Plus we explore the importance of capturing and collecting tasks, organizing, reviewing and doing.

Jodie Newman, author of Business Creativity - A Practical Guilde explains how creativity impacts our success in business and why you don’t have to be an ideas person to leverage creativity to surpass your competition. For resources mentioned in this interview visit: www.abn.org.au/herbusiness/creative Often we think of creativity with some romance, as artistic. And that alone has some of us label ourselves creative (e.g. I’m an ideas person), and others, not. Jodie describes creativey as a process that takes practice and which anyone can take advantage of. Jodie also outlines how small business owners, especially those that work on their own can generate, harness and implement creative ideas that help them compete effectively. It's time to think differently. Get your copy of Business Creativity at: www.allenandunwin.com
