I took the Productivity Course with Eric while he was filming it, and then I also kind of had it reinforced as we did our quarterly and yearly review and planning together. So in that way, I'd say I have taken some kind of version of the course with coaching.
When I first met Eric, I was at a “crossroads”, I would say, in my life. I definitely made work the center of everything, and that was making me not fully satisfied with my life and also with my work because it was too much a part of my life.
I was saying “yes” a lot. I was definitely a people pleaser. I was overcommitted and I wasn't satisfied with how I was following through on those commitments, because I was just saying yes to everything and I was really burnt out.
After taking the course with Eric, I felt like I was able to put work in its place and I was also able to put my goals and my higher purpose first.
One of the best things about the course is that it helps you really identify what your higher purpose is and what your ultimate goal is so that you can then design your life around that rather than just designing it around whatever pops up in the moment.
So in that way, it helped me get more done in more areas of my life. I also learned really helpful techniques for planning my day and getting through my day.
For example, time blocking was really important for me. I found that I do my best creative work in the morning, so I block off the morning section of my day for that deep work. And then after that, I plan administrative tasks or communication, or other kinds of things that I can do with my different energy levels throughout the day.
Learning the Pomodoro method was also really important. With remote work especially, I have a tendency to zero in on whatever I'm doing and get into hyperfocus, and then it really drains me of all my energy. So learning how to purposefully take breaks every 30 minutes helped me get through my day with a lot more energy left over at the end of it.
As I was doing that, I was also using the PomoDoneApp, which helped me track my time. And that was really helpful because it allowed me to see where I was spending the most time, what I was getting done faster, what I was getting done slower, and just generally helped me better see the breakdown of my day.
This actually helped me at work. I was able to hire some writers and get a title change because I was actually doing more editorial work rather than social media work, which was what I was originally hired to do.
But overall, I think the greatest reward is that my life just feels more balanced and more intentional. While you're never going to be 100% perfect all the time, I now have the tools that I need to check in with myself and make sure that everything is going in the direction that I want it to go.
