Have you ever returned home from a trip and felt like a completely different person? That happened to me last week after a scenic and peaceful stay in Wyoming. It was a nice change of pace and I was reminded of the power of practicing silence, which inspired today’s podcast episode.
During this COVID era and working from home, our productivity has been challenged. This has a lot to do with the fact that there’s absolutely no separation of home and work. In fact, data has shown that many people are actually working more than they were before. Our computers are quite literally at our fingertips all day, which makes it tempting to continue our work well past our usual hours. This is actually making us LESS productive.
We don’t often think about this, but silence is a crucial part of productivity. Listening is a critical skill that we’ve lost along the way. We have a way of either undervaluing it or treating it like a luxury. It’s time to make it a priority, and you can do that with three separate practices I share in today’s episode.
Rather than basing your productivity on how many tasks you can complete in one day, try measuring how much of the right work you get done. I’m talking about the creative work. The work that will lead you towards more joy. Let’s rethink productivity. It’s time to think bigger, bolder, and smarter about your enjoyment of this beautiful life that’s right in front of you.

- What happens when you value silence, trust yourself, and act on your instincts
