I’ve been observing the various states of being/doing, which we find ourselves in all day long. For small business entrepreneurs, strategic productivity is essential. To improve business productivity, raise your state of consciousness.
Doubt and distraction are the two stuck states most often raised by my clients, which get in the way of their completing what they say they want to complete.
Both states are non-productive and keep us stuck within over-thinking and avoidance. But once we decide to act, what are the most and least productive states?
From what I’ve observed, creation is the most productive and allowing is the least productive.
Creation stimulates positive evolution in business mastery, personal productivity and personal growth.
To engage the strategy, look at the ladder of creative consciousness and use it to decide to move up as many rungs as you can.
The Creative Consciousness Strategy has the same effect as asking this question about any business activity: “Is this something that makes me a profit?”
Or, for more creative living, ask, “is this something that brings me great joy or fulfillment?”
Here’s a quick description of how I see each rung.
When allowing, we are permitting and/or endorsing an action that may not have originated by conscious personal choice. When allowing, we are indulging the whims of others or permitting unexpected situations to determine our investment of resources.
Reacting is a notch above, because at least we are recoiling to an outside stimulus – even though reaction is often quick and emotionally charged, and only provides temporary relief.
Responding is a more considered and thoughtful acknowledgment of the situation, and thus our return response is often more logical and effective. But it’s still a return volley and not an originally initiated action.
Promotion is a step higher because we have decided to affect our own world by coercion, persuasion, education or some other method of influence.
Requesting is a higher state because we are asking and inviting. Since asking invites feedback and conversation, it is the closest state to creation and is often a precursor to it.
But creation is the highest business and life state, because it melds authenticity with intent, confidence and decision. Creation allows for experimentation and the expansion of possibilities. Because of this, it’s never a dead end. Creation is the highest state of being/doing consciousness because it generates value.
The most effective way to reach a state of higher creative consciousness is to be challenged to boldy create the life or business of ones dreams. Playing small serves no one.
