The desire to be productive is something I’ve felt, in varying degrees, throughout my life. It was low when we were overseas, and I knew that all I had to ‘do’ to be successful was absorb the experience, and it’s been highest when my confidence has been low, and when my children were small and it felt like there was always more to be done, particularly if I wanted to be a great mum, and still work on my career.
In this 23 minute episode, we’ll talk about:
🌱 How to identify when you’re moving from productive, into productivity anxiety
🌱 The problems that come up if this pattern become dominant in your life
🌱 How you can start to take action to bring your life back into balance, and do less busywork in favour of more time to the things that truly matter to you.
While challenging productivity anxiety can feel super uncomfortable at first, there are great rewards waiting for you if you do the work. More energy, more time to what matters to you, AND a greater sense of self-esteem. That sounds worth it, right?
