Today was a random day off, a carry forward from working over last weekend.
It was a mixed day, but a good one. There are three happy thoughts for the day related to productivity.
1. Just start something: Often, the hardest part about being productive is just getting started. It can be tough, and there’s a lot of resistance to overcome, but once you take that first step, you might find that the rest of whatever you’re doing is easier than you thought!
2. One productive hour can save an entire day: It can be tempting to write off a bad day, but we often overlook the fact that a single good hour can often save an entire day. So, before you give up on your entire day, see if you can set aside a single hour of time, without interruptions. You might be surprised at how much you can do!
3. Value yourself: I recently had someone I respect a lot talk to me about putting a value on my own work and experience. It wasn’t an easy thing to hear, but I needed to hear it. Very few of us are good at this, but you should start by making a list of your skills – you might find out that the job market values your skills more highly than you do!
