There is something about having productive days — we get this sense of accomplishment which often makes us feel good about ourselves.
The challenges we face is that a productive day does not just happen. We must cultivate it.
We do that by putting in place certain practices or behaviours each day that will make it inevitable for us to have productive days.
One thing we must always remember is that there will be days when we won’t be at our best and our level of productivity will not be as high as we would like it to be. While it is important to minimise days like that, it is also important to accept that we will have those kinds of days and not to be too hard on ourselves when it does happen.
The better we get at doing the things that will ensure we are productive, the easier and quicker we will get things done, which means we will accomplish our goals a lot faster.
