It Pays To Be Productive

It doesn’t matter where you are, what you’re doing, or what you should be doing should we say. It always pays to be productive. If you think about the amount of time that you spend just doing nothing, surely the days would pass by in your mind. Life is all about making the most of every moment, as our grandparents would say. But how many of us actually listen to this advice?

How many of us seize every opportunity, make the most of everything we do, and can honestly say that we’re productive? Pretty much none of us can, which is why we want to write this article. We want to show you what it means to be productive., and how you can ensure that you always are being.

What Even Is Productivity?

So, we want to start with this first. What does it even mean to be productive? Well, let’s first tell you what it means to not be productive. What you’re doing now probably isn’t productive. You’re either at work, and reading this rather than working. Or you’re at home, reading this, and trying to find a way that you can become more productive. Whilst we aren’t trying to remove you from this article, we’re trying to point out that when you’re not doing what you’re supposed to be doing, or procrastinating as it were. \

Productivity is doing the opposite. It’s thinking to yourself, I need to get x amount of things done, and making sure that you get it done. We’re so good at giving ourselves little rewards such as thinking, ‘i’ve just done the washing up, now I deserve to sit down for the rest of the night and do nothing else that I wanted to.’ If you can get out of this mindset, your whole idea of productivity will change, and you will accomplish so much more.

 

How Could More Of It Benefit Us?

It could benefit you as the more you do, the more you’re able to enrich your life. We’re missing out on so many opportunities because of this procrastination we have spoken about. If you find ways to be more productive, you can actually add time back to your day. If you take out those little reward breaks you’ve been giving yourself, all of your tasks will be done so much earlier, and all of a sudden you actually have free time to do what you want at the end of the day. It will become a revelation for you, so just give it a go!

Why Does It Pay?

The more time you’re able to free up for yourself, the more you’re going to experience life. For one, your mind won’t feel as clogged with all the tasks that you have to do, and you can start thinking about things you actually want to do. It could be getting back in to reading, going to the gym, or just generally being a more involved person in life if that makes sense. If you’re self employed and learn to manage your time more, then you’ll definitely get paid more.

Outfit Post – Autumn Style

I started Fashion and Style Police in October 2012, and sometimes I forget I have been running this blog for 6 years now. Fashion and Style Police started purely as a fashion and style police. So there were lots of outfit posts from day 1. Back then, on most weeks, I could post as many as 3 outfit posts.

Over the years, the blog has evolved as it should and it now covers beauty, travel, my self-employed and freelance journey, blogging tips, and all bits and bobs about my life which include my dearest twins. Sometimes, I like to look back to see how far I have come.

The journey to here has been long and hard work but fun because it is what comes natural to me. I am not trying to be someone else on here. There is no fakery at all It is pure me at the finest, and it has been an amazing rollercoaster ride. This blog has opened many doors for me. It has brought me opportunities I never thought were possible and I am forever thankful for that. It took me many years of hard work and dedication to get to the position I am now. And I am not even close to where I want to be yet but I am sure I will get there because I never quit.

I wore this outfit some weeks ago and I really the Orange Wide Sleeve Pleated Blouse. The lovely people at BlackBetty sent to me sometime ago and I finally got around to wearing it. I think it is super stylish and the colour is great for the current season. Styling this piece was easy with a pair of black leggings and heels.

What do you think of this look? How are you styling your autumn outfits?

The Duchess loves to twirl around in her pieces, which is why she was extra thrilled when she got this beautiful green and gold dress courtesy of David Charles Childrenswear. This piece is now one of her favourite dresses in her wardrobe.

The green colour with gold-embroidered florals makes this dress stand out. It is an unusual colour combination, and I love that about it. The lavish tulle layering finishes off the dress in a beautiful way. I also like the fact that the dress is light and feels soft to touch. My daughter was very comfy wearing this dress which is great as I see her wearing a lot of it.

The handcrafted details – puffed cap sleeves and jewelled embellished velvet ribbon at the waist, with a concealed zip fastening give the dress a “wow” effect.
