A plant grown in a sunny greenhouse is going to look quite different to one in a dingy corner of a back bedroom.
By which I mean the nature of your surroundings can have a profound effect on all aspects of your growth. Put yourself in a workplace surrounded by people you get on with, working in a way that suits you and you will be more productive.
My new job is not quite two months old, but already I am working harder, more creatively and having greater impact than I have done for some years. But it’s not just work that has benefited from the change; I’m getting fitter and losing weight, getting better control over finances, and even finding myself tidier around the home.
I put this down to engaged colleagues who share my goals, clear goals and a workplace that suits me.
That last bit is important though. If the plant in the greenhouse is a moss or lichen, it’s going to look different from the one in the dingy room, for sure. It won’t look good at all. It’s important that the environment you put yourself in is right for you. Find that environment and the productivity comes for free.
