The main question about personal productivity is how do you know when you are doing well in your personal life?
I have for some time been having an internal battle with regards the word Performance, especially in relation to the personal side of life, this stems from a personal want or need to be natural about the things I do. Performance to me has always had connotations of an Act, ‘to perform’ rather than ‘to be’.
This led me to a recent conversation where I realised that I wanted to help people be more productive, rather than increase their performance. To take the ‘Act’ out of the ‘Performance’ and focus on what and where they wanted to be.
So, have a quick look at yourself, are you a performer (doing the things you do because they need to be done) or a producer, creating the things you want and striving to get more value out of the time you spend to get them? Once you have asked yourself this question you are on the road to increasing your personal productivity.
Once you have worked out which you are you can make a choice, after that you are responsible, you are in control and you have the power to be more. Now, what are you going to do next?
Feel free to let me know, or if you need some help just ask.
