There’s a misconception about coaching in general, and productivity coaching specifically: That we’re trying to take away your fun.
That we’re trying to optimize every minute of your day so that you can be more #productive. 🤖
As if that was the most important thing.
Not here — quite the opposite. At Pique Coaching, we use increased productivity as a means to an end — to open up your time and energy, so that you can see and explore all of the possibility in your life. And that might include more fun!
On a recent client call, my client realized that she was buffering — using external things like Netflix, food, alcohol, and social media — to solve for the lack of fun she was feeling in her life. Over time, fun had gone out the window and responsibility had swept in. Can you relate?
Relying on things like food, alcohol, and social media can feel fun in the moment, but often has a net-negative consequence. (Weight gain, hangovers, and lack of social connection, for starters.)
If you’re noticing a lack of fun in your life — or if all of your fun is coming from sources that you don’t want in your life — here are 5 questions to ask yourself:
💡What do I think is fun that isn’t actually serving me?
💡What if I were the most fun person I could imagine being around? What would that look like?
💡How can I make [insert any activity] more fun? (Ask this 20 times a day and then report back.)
💡Where am I ready to let go of certain responsibilities that I’ve taken on?
💡What do I want to invite back into my life that’s fun for me?
