Be Intentionally Productive

Many people have found that this season of life we are in right now has decreased productivity. Others may feel over productive. I want to challenge everyone to be intentionally productive.

For those feeling under productive, this may come from increased feelings of depression stemming from decreased social interaction. Even though you know you have things on your to-do list, it seems hard to find the motivation to get them done. Maybe it’s just hard to think of what needs to get done. 

The people who are finding themselves over productive may feel that way because of increased endorphins coming from their response to the pandemic. These endorphins are the same hormones that give us our fight or flight responses.

Still others may feel that their productivity hasn’t changed much. No increase. No decrease. Just the same as it usually is. This would come from a good balance of hormone regulation, emotional regulation, healthy nutrition and good sleep routines.

Whether you are over, under or hitting the mark with productivity, I want to challenge you to view your productivity in a new light. Imagine if you could intensely focus on one specific area that you could be intentionally productive. Imagine the benefit this could bring to your marriage, your children, your family, your friends and even your future. What do you want to intentionally focus your productivity on?
