Today is the day I tell you about my journey with personal productivity. How I didn't realize that I was surrounded 24/7 by distractions, how I always aimed to be laser-focused consistently because it was my holy grail. How I gave up in the end, pivoted my methods, incorporate minimalism, and do the one thing that gives better results.
I came a long way before my journey brought me to the concept of embrace distractions. You see, I always love everything productivity-related. When I was still in school, one of my best friends at a time, Enny, was an organized person. As you may have guessed, I pick up some of her attitudes and habits. It lasts up to now. I think I have practiced being organized for long that it has become a habit.
THE QUESTIONFrom being organized, I picked up a new habit of planning. From the practice of planning came the habit of setting goals. One thing led to another; I grew up questioning, changing, implementing, revamping any productivity-related approaches for my personal growth. My prior experiences as an employee and employer taught me a great deal about productivity. There was something, however, that I couldn’t shake. It started with one question.
How the hell I feel that I don’t have enough time to do everything I have or want to do?
