Don't tell Michael Hyatt, but… I threw my Full Focus Planner out the window!

The truth is, I love the planner-based productivity system and I have used it ever day for years (since the first prototype came out), but sometimes when I hit a wall.

Does that ever happen to you? A few weeks ago, after a week in COVID-19 quarantine, my productivity habits were not working.

I was not getting focused work done, I was falling behind, and something needed to change—so I left my planner alone and instead asked myself one question to focus my efforts:

What is the next right thing for me to do?

That question changed everything, and gave me a new sense of focus and joy. I hope this helps you when you hit a wall yourself!

Disclaimer: No Full Focus Planners were harmed (much) in the making of this video, and I am back to using my planner with a renewed enthusiasm after a brief break.
