Productivity is a Tailored Suit

There’s a bunch of productivity and time management information out there.

There’s also a huge demand for it. Many people seek the magic formula that will get them more work done.

But every time I look at the comment section of the next generic “5 Tips To Manage Your Time” post, I see the same thing over and over again:

“That all sounds pretty but it doesn’t work with me because of __________.”

Kids. Family. Illness. Lifestyle. You name it. Many people can’t just make it work.

Some can though. We all have the same hours in the day, so what is missing?

…Many resources out there are a one size fits all.

You don’t expect to get into a one size store and find the perfect shirt if you’re taller than average. Or smaller. Or thinner. Right?

You kind of know your measures and you make it work.

And if you really want the perfect suit, then you go to a Tailor.

Learning to manage your tasks according to your time and energy is like coming up with a tailored suit.

You need to know your measures, and then learn how to sew…

…or hire someone to sew it for you.

Your routine and energy levels are yours and yours only.

Develop a strategy that works with your own rhythm.

    Ania, this came at just the perfect time as I’ve been trying to find a routine that will fit into my life, and just found that this morning! I looked at the list of things I wanted to accomplish on a day to day basis, and found out how to make it all fit comfortably. Today, I put it into practice, and was more happy and productive than I’ve been in YEARS. It was a lot of trial and error, but now I know what works for me. I’m going to keep it up for the next month and re-evaluate where I’m at and how I feel about it, but I sense great things on the horizon!
