Hi, this is Dr. Melissa Gratias Productivity Psychologist, LLC, and for the past couple of years I have written a series of articles on my blog called productivity superheroes.
It was a piece of inspiration I had when I kept meeting people in my community, past clients and otherwise, that really had it together. They had gotten somewhere either with my help or on their own.
These eight people were able to be more effective, organized, and productive.
I wrote their stories. I did interviews, and I hope that you will take some time to read those stories under the productivity tips tab on my website. Just click productivity superheroes.
When I think about this group of people as a whole there are three primary characteristics of a productivity superhero:
Number one – They have a sense of purpose
All of the folks I’ve interviewed have a very clear purpose for their life and for their work. They can tell you, “This is what I’m here to do. This is what I strive to do.” They have a purpose.
Number two – They use systems
They realize their brain is insufficient to hold all the knowledge they need. They have systems to manage their time, to manage their tasks, and to manage their information. They recognize that it can’t just all be a mental process. They have productivity systems to get it all done.
Number three – They have breathing room
They have a sense of mental space. In their time, in their tests, they have they have a sense of peace. They have breathing room to get things done, to move, to work, and to live.
When you put these three things together, it’s beautiful, and that’s the goal. That’s what motivated me to get into this business in the first place. So I would have these things. I wanted the breathing room and purpose and to help others achieve the same.
