Jonathan Stewart: Productivity is 100% personal.

Speaker:

As I mentioned in a previous episode, productivity is about

Speaker:

being in service to lead or show up in the way that works for you.

Speaker:

How that looks is different for every person.

Speaker:

However, if you look at the productivity industry, it's full of quick fixes and

Speaker:

templates that will solve everything if you just follow the step-by-step guide!

Speaker:

Now, if you're someone who's purchased templates, I have

Speaker:

to, this is no shame on you.

Speaker:

They aren't completely terrible and they allow you to get started.

Speaker:

But it's important to know how to use templates in a way that works for you.

Speaker:

Your own personal productivity is far more important than trying to squeeze yourself

Speaker:

into a solution that just doesn't work like a lot of the templates out there.

Speaker:

When coaching my clients, I often hear the same common phrase.

Speaker:

I want to be more productive or I want to be more organized.

Speaker:

I need to just sort my shit out.

Speaker:

The language used is harsh and robotic as if it needs to be done in a vacuum and you

Speaker:

need to behave like an efficiency machine.

Speaker:

When you make productivity personal, you move away from forced rigidity.

Speaker:

You step away from the idea that productivity is in a

Speaker:

vacuum because it isn't.

Speaker:

It also means that there are less binaries is when it comes to

Speaker:

creating your own productivity and it allows you to find your own way.

Speaker:

Start with what you want and what you have both of those work together so that

Speaker:

you know exactly what is true, what is realistic with your own productivity!

Speaker:

We are bombarded by hundreds of productivity and organizational

Speaker:

templates and quick tips and hacks that promised to make us more

Speaker:

efficient and effective and organized.

Speaker:

But often when you use them, you end up trapped in a spiral of constantly trying

Speaker:

to fix what's wrong and make you more better, and keep you from doing things the

Speaker:

wrong way, instead of starting from you.

Speaker:

If you really want to get more done!

Speaker:

Work in a way that's personalized to you instead of relying on hacks and

Speaker:

tricks, that just don't really work.
