The Seasons of Nature Are a Helpful Framework for My Productivity Levels

  • 2 min read

I don’t expect myself to pump out tons of stories anymore.

When I was pregnant with my second child last year and gave birth to a beautiful little red-haired baby this changed my life.

For the better.

I refocused my part-time writing activities.

My biggest priority is to spend as much time as possible with my kids.

This time is unique.

I can’t go back to this season of my life.

So one evening I read a story from another mompreneur in which she explained how she’s using the seasons of nature as a framework for her productivity levels.

She asked why everyone is expecting to do as much as usual in autumn and winter although animals hibernate and come to rest.

Here’s my manifesto:

  • I no longer expect maximum productivity from myself every month.
  • I align my energies with the seasons.
  • I gave myself permission to rest and reflect more this winter.
  • I’m in the middle of building an amazing community on Substack with the Substack School for paid subsribers. I’m growing my YouTube channel with about 30 long form stories. I’m growing my Medium and filling it with stories I can share quickly without overthinking and spending too much time in front of my laptop.

My Substack School and community will blossom this spring.

In summer, I bet I can celebrate the first small wins in our community.

In the fall, I will reap the harvest and fill our creative space with new ideas and energies.

Motherhood is the season of life I’m in

However, I’m in the season of my life where I’m a mom of a baby and a toddler.

That’s the season that’s the season that’s the most important framework for my productivity levels.

I do whatever I can part-time.

Of course, I could do more but then I’d miss maybe the best season of my life. Full of baby bliss and children's laughter.
