One of the Goals I set out to work on at the beginning of the year was to be more productive.
I want to be clear that my idea of Productivity is going to be a bit different than the traditional idea of productivity. I'm not concerned with how much stuff I'm doing but, rather with what stuff I'm doing. Am I working on Goals and Projects I want to be working on? Am I sticking to the Chore and Cleaning Plan I created? Am I missing something that will help me move forward? Do I want to continue doing the things that I'm doing?
My idea of Producticity is much more inline with the idea of Focus.
I want and need to sit down one day this week and Focus on how I want my system to work.
I want a system that will be flexible enough for me to work mindfully and thoughtfully. I want a system where I can throw things in a digital place and still feel comfortable using an analog notebook.
I think my best bet here is to use a version of Getting Things Done that relies heavily on Capture and Review. Which is I'm remembering my read through is the main focus of the system.
I just need to set up a system that I am comfortable with and that I will follow.
And that is the hard part.
I know that I should spend 15 - 20 minutes planning out the next day the night before. But, after I come home from work, I just want to veg out for a bit and not worry about the next day. Then in the morning I just want to drink coffee and not worry about what I am supposed to be working on until it's time to go to work. That is my procrastiation problem. That is what I want to work on stopping.
The laziness that is inherent in my morning "routine" is what drives me batty and what I want to change. I just need to buckle down and actually get to start doing the things that I want to do to make that change.
