Episode 96: Discover Your Unique Productivity Style Part 2 – The Contemplator 1


This is the 2nd in our 4 part series on productivity styles. In the last episode, we talked about the Commander. Maybe you see some of yourself in that style? Or perhaps you will identify more with the Contemplator.

Why are we so passionate about this topic?

  • Our own struggles
  • Our client’s struggles

Over these episodes, we want to share with you our dynamic new framework for understanding your Unique productivity style. No two people are the same – in fact, while you might have one dominant style, most of us are a blend of styles. We all have an innate natural way that we prefer to approach time and tasks – and that’s what we cover in our Unique Productivity Style quiz and framework.

What you can expect in these 4 episodes:

  • A short intro to each style
  • An example of a person who is dominant in that style
  • Specific recommendations for how to increase your productivity

Our goal is to give you the building blocks for designing a productivity system that works for you.

You’ll start seeing themes here that we will continue to explore more: less work, more play, and balance between vision and the details. We believe that doing more is not the answer to a business built with grace and ease.
