If you’re not having fun, don’t worry, it’s all relative.
For some of us, the most enjoyable work doesn’t necessarily pay. In fact, it may not pay at all.
For these times we ask ourselves: “The best way to be productive and enjoy my job?” This is what we call the “productivity mindset.”
In this article, I’ll share with you three simple steps that will make your life so much easier. These steps will make your work more enjoyable and make you financially more successful.
Step 1: Be productive.
It’s no secret that being productive (getting things done) helps you be more satisfied with your job.
Let me give you a concrete example.
When you’re at home playing games with your kids, you might think, “I’m pretty productive at this job.”
When I think of being “productive,” I really think of getting to the point where I finish something that’s easy or takes a lot of work, rather than being frustrated or stressed out trying to get my work done a certain way.
Here’s a great example of when productivity can help you get excited—because you get to the place where the fun becomes all worth it.

You do the same, but here are some important differences.
For starters, you’ve got three tools: a pen, notebook, and a piece of paper. I’m using the “folders” because I’m just using the pen and the notebook right now.
What you haven’t got is a ruler. But you can get one for a few bucks at a hardware store. It works like pens and notebooks.
Okay, let’s use that to make things easier. Go through your “folders” and create a big sheet of paper, big enough that you can write three things in it at once.
One of the first things you need to do is to get your pen out of the way.
Write something big in one spot and then draw a little on the other. It’s going to take some time,
