Are you constantly filling your days with activities but still feeling unproductive? Have you tried countless productivity systems to no avail?

You’re not alone. The truth is, being unproductive is often just a symptom of an underlying issue.

the big mistake

We often mistake being busy for being productive. We boast about how busy we are and how on top of it we think we might be. We applaud the busy people.

We jam-pack our schedules with endless tasks, seeking that dopamine hit from ticking off items on our to-do lists, but productivity isn’t about jamming more stuff into your day.

However, true productivity is about getting the things that matter done without compromising our wellbeing or relationships. It’s about prioritising activities that enhance our wellbeing and nurturing our relationships both at home and at work.

why are you unproductive?

There are three main reasons for being unproductive.

Firstly, lacking the necessary energy to sustain momentum can often result in feelings of demotivation.

However, motivation isn’t the starting point – it’s the end result of making consistent decisions, forming routines, and ultimately undergoing an identity shift.

Secondly, fear can hold us back from taking action.

Our minds seek safety in familiarity, leading us to avoid stepping outside our comfort zones.

Finally, boredom can also contribute to unproductivity, often signaling a period of transition or disengagement from our passions.
