Welcome to season 6 of The Merriweather Council Podcast. I wasn’t sure what to do about the timing of season 6 and then pandemic 2020 happened and I thought to myself, “self, just do it.”

So here we are! Thanks for being here with me today. If you struggle with productivity, this one is for you!

For the first episode of season 6 I wanted to chat about something we hear SO often from makers in business - daily, in fact!
People always tell us they struggle with PRODUCTIVITY!
“Danielle, i really struggle with productivity!” I hear it every day from makers in business. I am not exempt from this either, of course, I have to remind myself the truth of productivity pretty regularly, too.

One note i do want to make: for me, i think time management is DIFFERENT than productivity. Just to provide some context on this going forward, I believe they are two separate things.
Time management is an essential skill - not just for business but in life as well.

It is REALLY hard to nail down specific time management tips - because literally every single person has different things to manage and different priorities, so there is no one size fits all answer to time management and honestly i’ve seen a lot of “time management” hacks that maybe avail like, three additional minutes a day for people and it’s just kind of one of those things you have to sort for yourself what you do with your time because you have to sort for yourself what things need to get done in your life. So that’s a whole other bag of worms.

BUT productivity i think is a more important metric.
