"Productivity is the art of getting more done in less time."

With World Productivity Day just around the corner, I am bringing you a conversation about how you can use your journal to activate your most productive self.

In this week's episode we explore: 

  • Productivity isn't about doing more stuff alone. It's about creating more spaciousness to do more of the things we want.  
  • Productivity as a mechanism to take more control over your life. 
  • PURGE & PLAN journaling techniques to boost your productivity. 
  • How mental clutter drains our productivity -- and what to do to get more focused. 
  • Julia Cameron's 'Morning Pages' as a tool to access your flow & inner genius. 

"We can use our journal as a place to purge all the heaviness -- all the clutter, chaos, confusion -- freeing up your mind for clarity, creativity, & deeper concentration." 

  •  Purging as a technique that helps you take action quicker. 
  •  Planning to climb your equivalent of Mount Everest. 
  •  Use your journal as an external brain so you can free up bandwidth for creativity, innovation, and problem-solving. 
  • Taking ownership for the mindsets & behaviours that steal your productivity. 
  • Productivity does NOT have to be synonymous with hustle. 

We all have the same 1,440 minutes a day. It's not the amount of time that we have that matters -- but what we choose to do with the time we're given. 

Productivity is a powerful way to drive efficiency so you have more space and freedom to do the things you love. 

Get to writing!
