Solving the Right Problem
Which is more applicable to you?
A: You don’t want to do your work because it lacks purpose and because it doesn’t excite you.
B: You have lots of fun and meaningful things to do, but you feel overwhelmed keeping track of all of your commitments.
These are both productivity problems, but they require different solutions.
Learning how to use a task manager or how to plan your week won’t make you want to do work you don’t care about. In the same vein, creating a vision board and setting goals for this year won’t have you feeling calm and in control day-to-day.
Make sure you’re solving the right problem.
(Often, it’s a little bit of both.)
