Decoding Success: How Defining Productivity Unlocks Achievement

Let's talk about the powerhouse concept of productivity and why defining it is an absolute strategic game-changer. 

Figuring out what productivity means for you will save you time and energy as you chase your dreams. It's all about being efficient and effective! If you don't know what being productive looks like, how can you expect to do it? It's like trying to hit a target that's always moving – almost impossible. You'll wander around, wasting time and energy, feeling frustrated and defeated.

This week, take some time to figure out what being productive means to you. Try to imagine it using all your senses. 

Here are three things to think about:

  • How does it feel in your body? Maybe it's a buzz in your stomach or a vibration you can feel in your legs.

  • What do you do? Are you moving around or typing fast on a keyboard?

  • What do you tell yourself? Pay attention to your thoughts because they affect how you work.

For me, being productive isn't just about being busy; it's about using my time and energy wisely to get closer to my goals. When I'm productive, I feel light and energized. I'm either typing away at my computer or meeting with clients and in my head, I'm cheering myself on like, "Hell ya, I'm made for this!" 

When you define productivity for yourself, it helps your brain understand what you're aiming for. Our brains like to notice patterns and focus on stuff that matches our interests. This is called confirmation bias. Also, our brains have this filter called the reticular activating system (RAS) that helps us pay attention to important things. So, when you define productivity for yourself, your brain gets on board and enables you to notice opportunities to be productive.

Knowing what productivity means to you is like unlocking your full potential. It gives you clarity, focus, and direction. It helps you set goals, make decisions, and figure out what tasks to prioritize. It's about working smarter, not just harder, and getting more out of your time.

So, take a minute to think about what being productive means to you. Define it, own it, and get ready to crush your goals. You've got the power to make it happen!
