- 569 - Increased Productivity Comes from Organization Lisa Woodruff 54:04
Today’s episode is going to be a refresher to some of you, and new to a lot of you. I’ve recorded two podcast series that I’m going to reference, plus a concept I created years ago. This will get us all to the same place of thinking as we end the year.
Are you the one thinking: “Ok, I want that productivity that Lisa has and I’m doing #allthethings. So why don’t I have what I think I should have as productivity?” You’re busy running around like a chicken with your head cut off, trying to make the merriment for everyone around you the entire month of December. What you’re craving and what you want is to figure out how to finally get organized so you could be more productive, so you could be less stressed, so you can get more done.
So why is it that we can declutter, get kind of organized, and then get to productivity – and yet we still don’t achieve our goals? Or we get some time back, but not a lot of time…then one little unexpected life event comes and you feel like you’ve been put behind 6 months at home. Why is it such a regular occurrence that getting sick or an unexpected event can derail us so badly?
Organization is a three-part cycle: Decluttering, Organization, Increased Productivity. I’m going to add a fourth part to the cycle – Impact. This is the one that most people never get to. We’re always going for productivity, but really I think we’re going for impact and productivity is the step before impact. Now consider the Lisa Math that I do…and let’s fit all of this together.
Adding is organizing. Subtraction is decluttering. Multiplication is productivity. Division is the impact.
Impact comes from organization. Not productivity – impact. Productivity will increase the speed of the organization you have, but that’s it. If we’re only as productive as our organization will let us be, how do we optimize organization? Productivity is time bound. You can only get so much done in a day.
