When you try to make decisions, do you struggle to figure out what to do? Have you been called a people pleaser? When you finally make a decision, are you filled with guilt or anxiety? Has it been awhile since you’ve said no to someone? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this could be due to you needing help setting healthy boundaries. Boundaries are not just for our personal life, but professional boundaries in the workplace are needed just as much!
When someone is referred to as a “productive” person, the first picture which comes to mind is someone who is constantly busy. To be more precise, the definition of a productive person is someone who can accomplish many tasks in a short length of time. So yes, a productive person can be synonymous with a busy person but more importantly, a productive person understands how to manage their time and resources. With practice and the right tools, being productive can become a new form of normal.
