It’s Not About Productivity. It’s About Effective Productivity. 5 Steps to be More Productive

Eureka moment: ‘Productivity’ might just be a roadblock to real achievement, particularly for our neurodivergent friends. 

People strive for productivity but often miss effectiveness. Many don’t harness their unique work rhythms. 

Is time-efficiency the ultimate goal? Yes and no. Motivation and energy management are just as important. 

For some, the focus on productivity might make them unproductive because they are trying to check a box.

The best way to work doesn’t always mirror the traditional concept of ‘work’. It may even come off as odd or backward to some. But isn’t this where true innovation sparks?

Remember, it’s not just about being busy; it’s about being effective.

Follow these steps to achieve ultimate effective productivity. 

1. Recognize Your Peak Hours: Not everyone is a morning person. Track your energy levels for a week. 

Challenge: Swap tasks to match your peak times.

2. Break Tasks Into Smaller Goals: Large projects can overwhelm. Break them down. 

Challenge: Complete one small task daily, notice the momentum build.

3. Embrace Unconventional Work Methods: If traditional methods stall you, experiment. 

Challenge: Try a new approach for one task this week. Reflect on the outcome.

4. Prioritize Rest: Quality over quantity. Rest is productive. 

Challenge: Schedule short breaks every 90 minutes of work. Observe changes in focus and creativity.

5. Reflect and Adjust: What worked? What didn’t? Adaptation is key. 

Challenge: Weekly, adjust one strategy based on your reflections. Note the difference it makes.

Remember, effectiveness isn’t about ticking boxes. It’s about finding what truly works for YOU. Start small, experiment, and evolve your approach. Your best work awaits.
