When you run a business, you’re never short on things to do, and it’s possible to be busy but not productive. In an industry that often equates being busy with success, it’s easy to obsess over getting things done without actually moving ourselves forward. It’s also very easy to think productivity looks the same for every personality, and our DISC profiles bleed into that too.
How do we separate instant gratification tasks from the actions that bring us closer to our goals? Can we work better by aligning our activities with our personal profiles?
In this episode, author, coach, Head Coach, Chief Encourager, and Productivity Ninja, Grace Marshall discusses how we can define productivity for ourselves.
