Do you find that you spend more time procrastinating than being productive and delivering value?
Imagine the scene for me.
You have an important presentation to deliver. You allocate a specified amount of time to work on it. Yet 3 weeks after the deadline you are still tweaking and playing with it. There is something not quite right but you cant put your finger on it. That missing piece alludes you. You are reaching the point of frustration.
You didn’t used to spend this much time on presentations and problem solving. In fact, your problem solving skills are almost none existent these days. When your colleagues pose a question or a situation to resolve it is rarely you that offers insight. And that annoys you immensely.
- You feel strung out and ready for a holiday. Yet you have far too much to do to go on that lovely break you have all mapped out in your head.
- You work longer hours to try to get on top of things and to shift the pile of work you have building up.
- You want to be more productive.
- You want to have clarity, insights and the answers at your fingertips.
- You want to end procrastination and to power through your workload with ease and simplicity.
You CAN be 200% more productive.
Ready for the answer? It is really simple.
Step away from it all.
Sounds crazy I know but listen.
When you are in the day to day get up, go to work, come home, have dinner and sleep routine, it is so easy to get stuck in this habit. Over time, your thinking patterns deteriorate, stress takes over your body, mind, spirit and emotions and your ability to problem solve goes rapidly downhill. Your productivity wavers day to day and you find you spend more time procrastinating than focusing on your priorities and goals.
Step away from it.
When you step away, you give yourself time to relax, unwind and be at peace.
Ever noticed that you have had the most amazing insights to a work related issue when you are on holiday?
It is no coincidence!
Your mind is at peace and you are able to tune into your inner voice and intuition again.
I went away on a long haul business trip. I had been thinking about a project for a while. I had reached a block in the planning and was struggling to get past it. I just couldn’t move the project forward. That piece of the puzzle was missing.
To get to my destination I had a 3 hour train journey and an 11 hour flight. During this time I was the most productive, insightful and inspired I had been for a while.
Ideas flowed with ease. No more procrastination and blockages. It was as though all this was lifted and I was back in my flow.
Here are ways to become more productive:
- Take yourself away on holiday. Book in that holiday, weekend away or day trip.
- Pack a notepad and pen, IPAD or other device for you to record your ideas.
- Listen to some tunes that are uplifting and make you smile and sing along to.
When you least expect it, that issue or project you have been chewing over for months will become clear. You will receive thoughts, solutions, ideas, inspiration and the tools you need to move forward. All you need to do is relax and let it flow.
It is really that simple.
What time away can you book in this month?
