    17. A New Way To Think about Productivity

    17. A New Way To Think about Productivity

    If the term ‘productivity’ brings to mind systems, workflows, and various planners that you have to navigate, and it all feels too overwhelming, you’re not alone. However, if you’re on the other end of the spectrum where you wonder how you can be even more productive than you already are, you’re not alone either. But increased productivity actually isn’t about being more organized or efficient. The secret? It’s all in your mindset. 
     
    Join us this week to learn about the mindset of increased productivity and why systems and time-management practices can only get you so far. We show you how big emotions like anxiety, overwhelm, and anger reduce your productivity, two ways you can begin increasing your productivity, and the importance of learning when you don’t need to be productive.

Fave new pod

I’ve cycled in and out of burnout for years. Listening to this it feels like they’re talking directly to me. Their simple strategies and actionable tools help me listen to my body and remember what’s important, not what’s urgent. So good!
