A Productive LifeYou hear about productivity in the workplace all the time, but how does it apply to peoples personal life? Personal productivity can be best described as making dreams come true; being productive is about creating desirable change.
- What is it that you really want to do?
- What gives you a rush of happiness every single time?
- What do you sorely miss when you stop doing it?
The researchers found that the contrast technique was the most effective in encouraging people to make plans of action and in taking responsibility but only when expectations of success were high. When expectations of solving their interpersonal problem were low, those in the mental contrast condition made fewer plans and took less responsibility. Jeremy Dean- PsyBlogIt isn’t enough to dream, the dreams. The change needs to be grounded in reality. Compare your life, with where it is now and how it will change with your dream. Visualise how the dream will fit in your life, good and bad. Ask yourself:
- What needs to be done?
- How will it change my life for the better?
- How will it complicate my life?
- What am I willing to sacrifice?
Nothing in life is permanent, everything changes; being productive is about creating desirable change.
WorkflowDreams don't come to life on their own. To be productive means working on your dream. This means time needs to be set aside to make the dream real.
A good workflow removes distraction to re-focus effort on what needs to be done; to make the wish come true. At each moment be aware of exactly what needs doing and why. Keep it simple. Remove distractions. Distractions destroy creation. Keep your vision firmly in your mind. Ask, how is what I do today helping my future?
