The greatest system in the world is absolute rubbish if it’s not a fit for you and the way you work. My work always, always starts with figuring out who you are, and what you need to do your best work.
The word productive comes from the latin productif meaning serving to produce.
This in itself makes sense, but what about the word produce? The word produce means “bringing forth”. When I first discovered this I got a tiny bit giddy, but it makes perfect sense to be productive is in service to bringing forth (or leading) and the cool thing about this is…
There is no one way to be productive. (because we're all bringing forth something different!)
You are made up of different traits that support your productivity. When you use these traits when trying to finish your task lists or when getting organised. It helps you to be really clear on what you need to create a system that fits you, and allows you to be productive in your own way.
The perfectionist overperformer has a high threshold for quality and has a clear idea on what they want from their system (just sometimes gets caught up in the details).
You are a creative powerhouse, you think outside the box and once you fully embrace your creative needs and you come up with ideas that few others would dare to.
You don't need me to tell you what you are. You are strong in your own way of working, and are a natural leader who follows their own way of working and the change you create is revolutionary.
You've got a body of work that has taken on a life of its own. Your team is supporting you to achieve everything you want and together you are the closest to a system that suits you.
