I want to share with you the concept of bit by bit productivity in this piece. But first I’d like to tell you about the time I discovered that someone who I didn’t think followed the concept actually did – and does so in a big way to this day.
When people think about Gary Vaynerchuk, they tend to think about this one word: hustle.
And rightly so. I did, too.
It’s something that he has preached in his YouTube videos for a long time — not to mention in plenty of other content.
However, when I saw him speak at VidSummit several years ago he spoke about something different.
He spoke about patience.
I don’t think we talking about patience when it comes to many things, particularly productivity. We tend to want results now. We look for instant gratification.
The quick win. Inbox zero as an achievement. The home run.
But the best kind of progress isn’t always what happens when you swing for the fences. Slow and steady progress.
What I’m talking about it bit by bit productivity.
Bit by bit productivity isn’t just something that is valuable to consider. It’s something that’s worth adopting because it’s sustainable.
Hustle isn’t sustainable. Patience is.
Walking The Talk
When I started to build my business, I knew it was going to take time to build. The podcast, this blog, my YouTube channel. All of it has been built over time.
When someone asks me how I make money on my podcast and how they can too, I respond with the following:
“Do it for a long time.”
That’s how I did it. That’s how most of the people that I know who make money podcasting have done it.
The same goes for blogging. Or through YouTube. (I’m not there on YouTube yet, but that’s okay. It’ll happen.)
Bit by bit productivity is the way to sustainability.
It’s the way to stave off overwhelm and strive for excellence.
And it’s the way to stop doing productive and start being productive.
