Hi, I'm Briar.
Do you know what's next? Not just right now, but tomorrow and next week?
What about next month and next year? Do you know what's coming in your life and business?
Productivity advice shouldn't make you feel guilty.
What if you knew what was for dinner, and where your keys were?
What if you actually had the time to pursue a hobby? You know, for...fun?
What if you had a place to put the mental load?
What if you knew what was next?
What would that change for you?
Most productivity advice is bullshit. It’s a legacy of a system that doesn’t even exist any more. It’s created for married male executives, or single college students, but it’s not for the rest of us.
Productivity isn’t for the people who live on the margins.
It’s not for people with mental illness.
It’s not for people with disabilities.
It’s not for people with neurodivergent brains.
It’s not for night owls.
It’s definitely not for a woman with very small children, regardless of her employment status.
That’s because we’ve been lied to about what productivity ACTUALLY IS.
Productivity isn’t some goal-setting template with a planned schedule of action.
It’s not the perfect planner.
It’s not a filing system.
It’s definitely not a group coaching program with a Facebook group.
Real productivity isn’t about how you manage your time.
It’s about how you think about your time.
Time is one of the most valuable currencies you will ever possess. It is the thing that grants you a measure of freedom, and even more importantly, choice. Time is what you trade in exchange for the things that occupy your life, both good and bad.
Which means that productivity...
Is about habits and routines.
It’s about rituals and reflections.
It’s about self-care. REAL self-care.
It’s about identifying the things you want, and then figuring out how to get them.
It's about identifying the time necessary for the things that matter most, and being deliberate with it.
It's about identifying the next step.
