Productivity is Personal

What's it About...

Productivity is 100% personal. As I mentioned in a previous episode, productivity is about being in service to lead/show up in the way that works for you!

How that looks is different to each person however if you look at the productivity industry it's full of “quick fixes” and templates that will solve everything if you just follow my step by step guide!

If you're someone who's purchased templates and I have too, this is no shame on you!

They aren't completely bad, but it's important to know how to use templates in a way that works for you! Your personal productivity is far more important than trying to squeeze yourself into a solution that just doesn't work.

When coaching my clients I often hear the same common phrase:

I wanna be more productive or organised… The language used is quite harsh, and robotic…

When you make productivity personal, you move away from forced rigidity, you step away from the idea that “productivity is in a vacuume” (because it isn't). There are less binaries when it comes to creating your own productivity, and it allows you to find your own way.

How To Get Started…

Start with what you want, and what you have! This allows you to know exactly what's true and also realistic with your productivity.

We are bombarded by hundreds of templates and quick tips and hacks that promise to make us more efficent, and organised! But often you end up trapped in a spiral of constantly trying to “fix what is wrong” and make you better & keep you doing things the “wrong way” Instead of starting from you!

Get More Done (in a way that fits you!)

Inertia vs Executive Dysfunction

As an autistic business owner, I’ve struggled with the inertia that comes with starting and finishing tasks. The concept of “executive dysfunction” never sat well with me, as it felt negative and worked against my philosophy. Instead, I prefer to work with my inertia, finding tools and strategies that help me get started and finish projects. One of those tools was Notion, which initially helped me understand how I work. I recently came across the idea of “autistic inertia” and “monotropism” which resonated with me, as it focuses on momentum carrying our thoughts forward. In this article, I discuss my journey with inertia, productivity tools, and how I navigate the challenges of running a business with these insights.

ChatGPT isn’t a replacement for human intelligence. The content it generates is only as good as the prompts you feed it.
