Do you know that productivity will make you a happier person and entrepreneur? More productive entrepreneur means a happier entrepreneur and person.
First, productivity is related to your personal and professional achievements. More you did at your work in less time will bring you more achievements at work and more time for your personal life.
Often, I have seen entrepreneurs that are running around different places in their companies. They are firemen who are trying to get rid of various fires in their companies. Their most used sentence is “I am so busy.” They have problems not only in their companies but also in their private life.
Are they happy? No, they only pretend that they are happy. When you come close to them and analyze their average day you will see that they are unhappy. They are unhappy because of their low level of productivity.
Analyzing many data from my work with entrepreneurs I come to the strong positive correlation between productivity at work and happiness. Here, I want to share the reasons for this strong positive correlation related to productivity and happiness.
How Productivity Can Make You Happy?
1. You will succeed to do everything you want to do.
If you are a more productive entrepreneur, you will succeed to do everything you need to do. Unlike the unproductive entrepreneur who always will have only half of their tasks finished, at the end of the working day you will have everything from your to-do list done.
2. You will become a more focused entrepreneur doing less and achieving more.
Productive entrepreneurs differentiate important from unimportant, priority from non-priority. In such a way, they are becoming more focused on important things they will need to do. If you become a more productive entrepreneur, you will start doing fewer things that are more important for your business at the same time achieving more. This will increase your happiness as an entrepreneur.
3. Your priorities will be clearly defined allowing you to focus on most important things.
The more productive entrepreneurs have clearly defined priorities allowing them to narrow their focus on the biggest priorities. This will allow you to spend time on other things that will make you happy.
4. You will have more time for yourself allowing you to relax, walk outside and exercise in order to live a healthier life.
Doing more important things in less time without loses on the side of achievements will give more time for yourself. You can spend more time relaxing, walking, and exercise in order to start living a healthier life. This will bring you more happiness for you.
5. You will have more time to spend with your family.
More productive entrepreneurs don’t work 20 hours a day in their business. They have much more time to spend with their families. It brings a large amount of happiness.
