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!
