Whether you feel like you’re treading muddy waters or riding the rapids, either one can be especially unproductive.
So how come productivity techniques don’t work for you? The answer is simple.
The answer is in understanding your natural wiring. Your hard wiring is natural to who you are and explains why you do what you do. A person naturally wired to respond to urgent time pressures often gets easily distracted and wants to naturally respond to what comes across his or her desk immediately.
While responding quickly to your environment can be a strength, you may find yourself responding to every interruption often distracting you from your original task or focusing on what’s most important. Responding immediately to emails or phone calls can become inefficient and unproductive not to mention stressful. When you understand the internal need to respond to the interruptions, you can then look at the techniques and processes that work for you long term.
If you’re wired with a high sense of urgency, you may be more productive long term when you work at short intervals on various projects. In this way, you are working with your natural wiring, not against it. So instead of forcing yourself to sit and work on one project for a long time, set multiple but shorter time frames to work on a project.
If you are naturally wired to juggle multiple projects, setting small bite-sized time frames may help you not only get started on a project, but finish it with more focus and fun.
