It is time to ditch the old, outdated productivity paradigm of pushing harder and moving faster. There is a new paradigm for productivity that allows you to get more done with far less stress, overwhelm, and anxiety.
The following quiz will reveal your current conditioned productivity style and begin to distinguish for you a new pathway for navigating life that generates more ease, resiliency, and accomplishment.
Pick your most common response. Don’t think too hard about your answers. Go with your first instinct.
Total your responses for each letter and view your results below.
Mostly A’s – Flow: You are tapping into ALL of your available resources to move life forward with resiliency, productivity, and creativity. You understand the inside-out nature of your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors and therefore don’t need to spend much time and energy managing them. You leverage your wisdom and intellect to control what you can and let go of what you can’t. This enables you to enjoy life and make it truly work for you.
Mostly B’s – Force: There is a strong drive to get things done in order to keep stress and overwhelm at bay. You tend toward a quicker pace of life. It can take a lot of effort, focus and determination to keep up with the pace of life. There is a lot you need to control and manage. You’d love to slow down and relax your grip on life but it would jeopardize how much is accomplished and would negatively impact those you support.
Mostly C’s – Fight: Much of your time is spent attempting to move life forward by finding the right thoughts, feelings, and behaviors first. You can get stuck in inaction – mired in over-analyses and fighting with your inner self. This can look a lot like perfectionism and procrastination. You wish you had more discipline, willpower, and motivation to keep life moving forward. Things get done but not without a lot of internal struggle. You’d love for accomplishment to be much easier.
Mostly D’s – Float: Life feels like it is happening to you – you are generally not an active participant in determining where you go. You are being swept from place to place without conscious anchors to guide you. There is fun and enjoyment but it is fleeting contentment that doesn’t translate into a deeper sense of contribution or meaning.
