Welcome to Episode 81:Doing Nothing Is Not The Secret To Productivity

In a world filled with major stressors and never-ending to-do lists, it can be truly difficult to find time to just do, well, absolutely nothing. While it’s all fine and dandy to take a “time out” once in awhile to do nothing -- as it’s one of the best things you can do for yourself. The flipside of this in the business world can be treacherous to your goals and end game. Sometimes we need to push past the ache and urge of nothingness to make real headway.

To some, myself included, getting things done is a like a drug. We’re addicted to the feeling of striking those to-do’s right off our list. Being productive gives me a rush of exhilaration. It energizes me, inspires me, motivates me, keeps #AllTheThings in perspective -- and in order -- and helps me reach my goals -- and those of my tangled clients. So, while living in the realm of nothingness once and awhile is good, it’s not a good habit to create, nor is it the secret to success.

Here's what we will be untangling in this episode ...

  • The low-down on time management
  • How to boost productivity to enjoy guilt-free relax time
  • How to stop feeling “the need” to keep growing your to-do list
  • How to FOCUS on priorities and growth (and why)
  • Chris Bailey’s “A Life of Productivity” (introduction)
