Probably you’ve stumbled upon thousands of articles on productivity, sharing systems, tricks, tactics to be productive in a short period time.
But the reality is productivity is an energy game, more than a system.
Searching how to be productive is the first step than everyone should take, but applying the knowledge is what’s hard for most people.
The reason why it doesn’t work for them is because they don’t work on the roots. What do you mean?
They approach everything with their old attitude, and beliefs.
So when they do want to apply the “new productivity system”, they have a lot of hard times, because their beliefs don’t support that.
First thing that everyone should do, is to work in the attitude, and the mindset.
You need to be vibrant, and energetic to take immediate action, because that’s what going to take over on all your limitations, and doubts.
