Personal Development and Personal Productivity

Nov 8, 2007
Personal development goes a long way in affecting productivity. Human mind rapidly shifts between levels of grief, guilt, fear, joy, love and courage. While people pop in and out of these levels, there's usually a predominant 'usual' state for everyone. An increase in productivity in metaphysical terms refers to a flow of clarity and strength deep inside one's heart which translates into their speech, mind and actions. Productivity is nothing but an uninterrupted flow whose result transmigrates into the material world as wealth. Anything that saps your energy and robs you of focus stems this flow. Time management is a critical element in personal productivity and how you manage your time can make or break you. The super dynamic entity that time is leaves no room for procrastination. The sole weapon human possess against this virtually indestructible enemy is planning. Most people commit the mistake of drafting plans that would require an android to execute.

Art of Time Management

An ideal Time management plan is one which is practical and realistic. Most time management plans bites the dust because it's drafted without considering the 'humanity factor'. Humans unfortunately have a labyrinth of 'internal resistances' comprising of doubt, fear and procrastination. Even the best of the system fails miserably if it fails to address both the mental and physical reason why you get stuck. Once a person realizes where he/she is spending the time it unlatches the door that separates the unconscious habits and the conscious. Time logging is another useful option which traces where you have been wasting the resources.

Cultivating a desire

All great success stems from a simple desire or an idea. What ultimately fuels these ideas into reality is the power of desire. An idea can render you a temporary moment of satisfaction but it's the desire that's going to help you overcome the inevitable hardships. Individuals who cultivate a burning desire are on a drive and would go to any length to see their goal met. Everything's nice and good when the riding the crest of a wave, it's when the wave crashes and you are left a total wreck that the power of your desire gets tested. A burning desire is an infinite source of inspiration from which one can draw from even at the depths of desperation and hopelessness.

All said and done, systems are great, templates are good and plans are well drafted. But if they don't suit you or your situation, you are pretty much back to square one. Trying to fit into someone's shoes cramps your effectiveness, leaving you sore. Personal development is best described with an analogy of our existence. If one examines the events that took place for us to be brought into existence at this precise moment in time. The whole series of happenings just seems a freak accident that should have never happened. In the realm of Personal development, nothing is really impossible, because everything is.
