Mistaking Productivity For Intentionality

Listen Now:

As ambitious high-achievers, we have a big vision for who we want to be and high expectations for what we hope to accomplish. This often leads to us trying to find that competitive edge to differentiate us and support us in getting extraordinary results.

This pursuit often leads to us constantly looking for opportunities to be productive - multi-tasking to get more done, and finding ways to do things more efficiently and effectively.

While I agree with that, I also think we’re missing the mark and telling ourselves a story about our productivity that makes us feel better, but it doesn’t actually work..

The reason we seek higher levels of productivity is because we want our lives to have meaning. We want to feel proud about the difference we’re making, everything we’re contributing, and that we’re making the most of this one shot we have at life.

But the concern is, productivity is a numbers game. It’s about the quantity that we can pack into a day. What’s far more potent, and what we’re actually looking for on a daily basis is not to just simply do more, it’s to feel really good about what we’re doing. It’s about quality, not quantity, which all stems from living with intentionality.

When you live with intentionality you infuse purpose in everything you do. You are constantly making choices that allow you to experience life to the fullest. In that way intentionality can actually guide your productivity because it needs to meet an extra criteria of importance, but intentionality also encourages you to slow down and do less so that you can be more present.

So if we pause everyday to consider how we can live more intentionally, not productively, we find more acute ways to elevate the way we experience the moment. It requires that we make the unconscious conscious so that we can make more positive choices that represent the lives we want to live as it relates to our health, relationships, work, and impact.

If you want a tool that helps you to live more intentionally, providing you with more awareness and accountability around how to be the best version of yourself, I’d love to help you install your Self Improvement Operating System. It’s through this operating system that you can improve anything about your life, from getting rid of bad habits and getting more consistent with good ones, to enforcing higher standards that help you get what you deserve in life.

And implementing this Self Improvement Operating System into your daily process is exactly what we do in the 21 Day Super Habits Challenge!

If you thought you were growing now… This challenge takes everything about your self-growth to the next level, and I can’t wait to share it with you!
