Green road sign choicesAs people go through their days fighting against what seems to be all odds to get things done, a lot of them are wishing they could get more done, or just get something done. The same thing happens for them day in and day out and they’re stuck. One thing they don’t realize is that being productive is a choice. It’s not something that you have to be gifted with. I’ve heard many people say, “I’m just not organized or I’m just not productive” thinking that if you’re not wired that way, then you’re doomed. That’s not the case.

Life is all about choices. We make them every day. You have to make a conscious choice about how you want to work. So if you’re having trouble getting things done one of the things you have to ask yourself how you want to work.  Make time to answer that question for yourself. Do you want to work in flow; do you want your office to be peaceful? These might seem a bit obvious, but if you don’t think about what you want and make the conscious choice to work that way, then it’s not going to show up in your world.

After choosing how you want to work, the next step is determining how you want your day to look and how you want to experience your day. They might be crazy right now, but step back and think about what you want your ideal work day, your ideally productive day to look like. You might want to have time each morning for that work out that you never seem to be able to fit in, or to have some time to yourself…even just the few minutes you’ve been craving. If you’re looking to work in flow, what does that look like on a daily basis? What challenges and non-supportive habits would you have overcome?

Once you’ve made the conscious choice about how you want to work and you have an idea of what it looks like, you have to create the structure for it. That means building the foundation that will give you the day you want to live inside of your business. So you seek to discover how you relate to time, you choose the tool that’s right for you based upon that, and build your system around it to support you getting and then staying productive. Then you can bring your day to life and have that experience every day.

Having the productive days you want isn’t difficult, it’s just about creating them.  If you’re looking for support in creating your ideally productive day, I invite you to check out my Zen Day session. Invest one hour of your time with me and we’ll lay the foundation for the day you want to create and you’ll be ready to take the steps to make it come to life.
