I’ve said it before, and you’ll always hear me say it…productivity is personal. It’s my belief and part of my philosophy around my business. It has been for as long as I’ve been in business. There are several things that come into play here, but the primary thing is that your personality impacts your productivity. Who you are has everything to do with how you approach getting things done and it speaks to your strengths and weaknesses in this area.

When you understand who you are in your relationship with this illusion, AKA “Time”, you see your strengths and can understand why you’re good at somethings inside the get it done equation. When you look at your weaknesses you gain an understanding of why you’re challenged with certain things. When people discover who they are…or their Productivity Persona, the fog begins to lift and they start to see why things are the way they are, so confusion starts to leave.

From the point of understanding it then becomes about addressing the challenges with remedies that fit so that the challenges can be met on any given day before they show up, if they do. That point also allows you to pull your strengths into the mix as you create your foundation and a system for getting things done that will get you through your days, because it’s tailor-made to who you are.

This also includes pulling the other pieces of your Persona into the picture and that brings you full circle, with a very clear understanding of who you are in your relationship with time and how you should approach getting things done. It tells you what tools fit and what habits to build as part of the support system to get you through your to do list daily.

Who you are supports you, most times unknowingly, in the realm of productivity and it also hinders you. Your personality makes it dictates behaviors that make knocking things off your to do list difficult. Using your strengths to shore you up and transforming the weaknesses to address the challenges is what helps you get through your days and get it done.
