✨ Do We Really Need to be More Productive?

Do We Really Need to be More Productive

It depends on how you define productivity. Like most things in life, productivity can be subjective. One person’s definition of a fulfilling, kick-ass day at work might look entirely different than your own. 

If you’re already crazy busy it might be hard to think about squeezing more out of a day, but, then again, maybe it’s a sign to slow down and take a hard look at what’s siphoning away your time. No one is saying you’re not doing enough, but if you’re feeling like days fly by and your biggest priorities are not getting any love, it’s definitely worth considering how to adjust spending your time.

On the flip side, maybe the concept of energy management is what you need to kick it up a notch. There’s something to be said about saving the toughest projects for when your energy is at its juiciest. And of course, with a fresh season knocking on our door, we should always consider how the seasons impact our flow energy as well (check out our Woo for You section below).

This week’s collection explores all of this and more as we turn our focus to productivity. Take a look and hit reply to tell us if you plan to try out any of these resources.
