095: Stop Being Busy & Start Being Productive

Which is better, to fill our day with 40 insignificant tasks that we can check off our list? Or five momentum building, goal setting tasks? Five important tasks will trump any number of insignificant ones any day of the week. Today, we’re talking about shifting our mindset from busyness to productivity. I’ll share why it’s important to be intentional with our time and how to be sure our ‘yeses’ matter.

Show Notes

What’s In This Episode:

  • Focusing on what we’re doing best rather than worrying about whether we are doing enough
  • Willful focus vs. automatic focus
  • How to eliminate distractions, specifically technology and social media
  • Stop using busyness and distractions to cover uncertainty in our lives
  • Making choices about how you spend your time & making your yeses matter

What To Do Next:

  • Stop thinking about the busyness, stop getting so focused on the number of tasks your accomplishing each day and focus on productivity. Focus on what matters most and just worry about those few things. It’s not about quantity, it’s all about quality.
  • Ask yourself: What if I don’t succeed? What lessons could be learned? How will that help me improve for next time. Reframe your experiences and see them as an opportunity to grow.
