Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, welcome back to day nine of this twenty twenty eight days of productivity.
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Tristan Griffiths. You can connect with me as @ImTristanG across all the socials, so please do connect with me wherever you most like to spend time.
Today I want to encourage you do do less;
And to give yourself some space.
At the first look, that might seem counter intuitive when we’re talking about productivity, and achieving more in less time.
But far too often, as business owners and entrepreneurs, we feel the necessity to be busy and to be doing things all the time.
We don’t give ourselves the brain space, and the ability to problem solve, creatively, by detaching ourselves from situations.
It’s important to take time out to;
- Carry out leisure activities
- To meditate
- To clear our minds
- Spend some time in our own company
- Allow ourselves the creative capacity to solve problems
- Come up with new ideas
- Really push our business and brand forwards
Sometimes we need time and we need space to solve problems.
Sometimes that time and space is for creative outlet.
Now in order to be creative, it’s not just the act of doing, but sometimes the act of thinking about things. And there’s a lot to be said for giving yourself time out, to relax, to exercise, to walk, to think, to just step back for a minute and give yourself that space.
So today I want to encourage you to do less:
And give yourself space
It will help you to solve problems better.
It will help you to get more creative.
And ultimately that’s going to help you to grow your business or brand.
Remember productivity doesn’t have to be the badge of honour of being busy all the time!
[ Which is the curse of far too many business owners and entrepreneurs these days ]
Don’t wear busy as a badge of honour!
But be productive with your time.
This is all about raising your productivity.
So focusing on doing the right things in the right moment.
And also choosing not to do things when that’s right as well!
