While keeping this in mind, let’s find out how from being the laziest person on this planet to ‘Now I am on my way to productivity greatness…’
Do keep in mind that, all in all, this is the series of blogs where I will be sharing key secrets of productivity throughout this blog series that are conceptual, actionable and achievable. I’ll be sharing very deep rooted conceptual and well thought out actionable content by understanding the importance of this topic in your life.
So next… let’s get started and pay attention.
Why there are productivity problems?
To keep you on track during this whole blog series, here are some of the pointers we are going to talk about throughout the series and what you are going to achieve by the end of it.
No. 1 productivity problem is Clarity
The fact that we are in most cases unable to take actions is because we don’t have personal clarity or spiritual clarity.
Spiritual because some of us are so stuck in finding the ultimate purpose of life that we have lost the ability to think beyond the mental depth of our brain. In a way we have detached ourselves from the physical world and that happens when you don’t have personal clarity about your life and the answers of your questions are unanswered.
While in other cases, you may have been through some very emotional incidences and series of experiences that have caused immense pain to you and you have lost your interest. And that could be one of the reasons for you as well.
Whichever be the reason, the fact that after some incidents or experiences we fall in life and lose our track, again and again, and that’s the enough indication to prove that our core and foundation is not right, isn’t it? Although failing in life is inevitable, if you stop failing, you stop living or growing. It must not mean that you keep losing yourself in this process of life.
In the general physical world, the foundations of anything starts first from concepts, and then you level up towards advancement with the help of that concept or foundation formula you have got from your parents, school, college, company or business mentor.
For example in the construction of new buildings, backfilling, plinth filling or earth filling and the pillars are the foundations to support the building and the different floors are the development of building blocks.
While in life, this is not the case, you get clarity on your concepts only as you gain more emotional experiences as you live more, make more mistakes, do whatever you want, until you stop. If you stop, that’s where life ends.
In the nutshell, living the life is in itself about understanding the whole concept of life as you gain more emotional experience by living it.
And, a breakthrough is that cheat code for the foundation. It is that one basic concept formula of life and clarity, that you receive early in life, and can use it to get abundance.
No. 2 productivity problem is the mindset
Although clarity clears out the other problem when you’ve got it, you first need to reach the clarity to be able to delete all the other resistance in your life.
And the 2nd number 1 productivity problem that causes this resistance is the mindset, which stops you from getting the “clarity eraser” to erase your life’s problem and pain.
And this mindset problem is created by your situations, surroundings, or your own habits.
The good thing is you have 100% ability with no specific resistance in a way to fix your mindset.
All you have to do is ask yourself this one question, what truly matters to you? What is the most important decision you can make for you and for everybody else who may or may not be directly connected to you. For example, your family, friends, community, animals, and nature?
Make a prosperous decision.
If you will ask a tree these questions, his action itself speaks to the world, that if he could actually have a mouth and could speak, he’d definitely say, I want to keep growing and be fruitful for other living beings and give them my shadow of positivity and peace.
By the way, when was the last time you’ve sat under the tree?
And lastly, you have to have empathy inside you and honesty to accept that one truth your soul is trying to communicate with you in order to have the right mindset.
The 3rd productivity problem is a system
You’re reluctant to follow a system, so much so that you make a habit of becoming out of discipline to control your own life that is falling apart, all in the name of wrong interpretation of freedom.
Many of us think that adhering to a system is restraining that keeps us away from our freedom and it’s like living in a cage.
And that’s not true. I look at my life or my surroundings, anything that I’ve achieved and are happening around me is because of the implementation of some sort of disciplined system.
Life for example in itself is an ecosystem and it follows a system that makes sure everything is balanced.
Hence, Balance your decisions.
Build a system based on the clarity you have got
Lastly 4th main problem of productivity is integrity
“integrity means doing the right thing, even when nobody’s watching you”
Absence of integrity is one of the main reasons for a lack of mindset. We lack integrity so much that we are not even truthful to our own self and that’s where the problem in mindset starts.
Lacking integrity makes you build habits consciously that deviate you from usual and rational judgment, also called cognitive bias, which result in ineffective decision making. And these selfish habits cause stagnation in your own life from achieving the highest standards of integrity and eventually the right mindset which is if you see, eventually again keeping you from getting clarity in life.
Dishonesty causes your personal loss hence build a value system, and strong code of conduct for yourself to follow and have the integrity mindset to achieve the ultimate goal of productivity.
There is this author, Arina Nikitina, I’d like to attribute this line to her, she says, Integrity is the core quality of a successful and happy life. Having integrity means being totally honest and truthful in every part of your life.
And it is integrity that enhances all your other values. The quality of person you are is determined by how well you live up to the values that are most important to you.
Hence, Live in accordance with your deepest values.
So, that was my four reasons why there are productivity and procrastination problems. This covers pretty much everything, as to why we need to take conceptual correction of productivity seriously and how productivity is a very important part of our lives that we are ignoring. Again, it badly needs to be corrected, rather than escaping from it by binge watching Netflix.
