Beyond Productivity

Do you ever get so caught up in crossing everything off your to-do list that you forget exactly why you're doing what you're doing?


So many of us tether our worth to how productive we are. Whether we’re conscious of doing this or not, this default mode can leave us unsatisfied. And if you’re like me, totally cranky and not fun to be around.

 

It’s so easy to get caught up in being productive just for the sake of it that seeing an alternative to the hustle and the grind can seem impossible.

 

I get stuck in this cycle when I lose sight of my bigger values and commitments in life. When I move through my day from a place of fear and lack.

 

For me, this fear sometimes sounds like “I don’t have time to rest because I have to make up for lost time. I can rest once I’ve got it all figured out.”

 

Oh, our human brains are a blast, aren’t they?!

 

It’s so easy to get caught in the weeds of doing the doing that we forget to look up and ask ourselves exactly why we’re here doing it in the first place.

 

Pause for a moment and ask yourself...

 

What do I want to create?

 

What do I want to have more of in my life?

 

Who do I want to be?

 

Let your answers be your anchor.

 

These are the commitments you can come back to over and over when you notice yourself caught up in the loop of fear and lack. When you get stuck in the weeds.

 

Living life from your deeper commitments doesn’t make life necessarily make life 100% rosy, nor does it make your current obligations magically go away. But it does give you access to more mental clarity, ease, and joy.

 

If you move through and plan your days from what you want, NOT from what you fear, so much is possible for you to create.

 

If anything is possible, what do you want to create?
