Every productivity and time management “guru” out there is always so serious. You know what I mean? Get up at 5AM, no screen time after 9PM, get 7.5 hours of sleep. All of these rules seem so rigid! Being productive ends up being more of a chore – so much so that you don’t even want to bother. Are you with me? I hope you’re with me.
I want to change how we feel about productivity and what it means. Just because my schedule looks different than yours, that doesn’t mean I’m doing it wrong. It means that we all work differently. Being a morning person may work for you but it might make me tired in the afternoon. Drinking bulletproof coffee might be my jam, but you can’t tolerate the idea. What I’ve learned: that’s OK.
Let’s stop taking this stuff so seriously and live life the way it works for us. If that happens to be time-blocking and set schedules or scribbling on your white board, then so be it.
I’ll give you the tools and strategies that work for me, we’ll discuss what everyone else is doing so we can try those methods too. I’ll research and try the hottest new web apps coming out so we can all find what works best for us. Cause let’s face it, some of us like pen and paper while some of us prefer apps. It should be your choice not someone else’s. And guess what?
It’s OK to be half-assed every once in a while. No one’s looking.
I also think systems and processes don’t have to be so rigid. They ebb and flow. They change. What worked for you last month, may be driving you crazy this month. I’m here to help figure out the systems that work best for you and help you toss out the ones that don’t.
Perfection is overrated (not to mention stressful!). Let’s create realistic systems – without all the fuss.
