The Purposeful Productivity Playbook: Stress Management and Energy Optimisation

Is the goal to always be productive?


Always being on and maximising our productivity sounds good in theory. Like it’s the right strategy that will get you closer to your end goal faster. 


The reality is very different though.


We’re human. We need rest. Our brains have a finite attention span and ability to focus.


With that in mind, it’s important for all of us to be aware of what season we’re in. Whether that’s growth, a bit more work/life integration or reinvention. In this way we can ensure that we’re getting the rest we need and being purposefully productive.

In this week’s episode of The Aligned Achiever Podcast, I’m running through a playbook so that you can manage your stress and optimise your energy by beginning with understanding the season of life that you’re in.



In this Episode We Explore:

  • The seasons we cycle through in our lives and careers (there are 3 main ones and 4 micro ones) 
  • Why managing your stress requires you to begin with the end in mind
  • What “Energy Management” is and how you can manage your energy
  • Avoiding burnout by addressing your fundamental beliefs and stories
