Your Quiz Results are In!

Color-Coded Crusader

Based on your quiz answers, you’re currently a Color-coded Crusader.

This means you probably rely on a to-the-minute calendar to manage your day, you are reliable and deadline-oriented, and thrive on working step by step to achieve your goals.

Common strengths of a Color-coded Crusader include attention to detail, thoughtful evaluation, meticulous organization, and deep commitment to goals.

And, some pitfalls include perfectionism, rigidity, overthinking, and feeling like a failure if things don’t go exactly to plan.

Ok, Now what?

The work you do makes such an impact on your slice of the world. You are so generous and dedicated to helping your village, but, who’s helping you? Well, I am!

You need to nurture your flow to create a rhythm of work and rest that nourishes you. And then you can revel in some peace as you show up as your best self each and every day.

One Tactic to Adopt Right Now

The tactic I recommend that will give you the biggest bang for your buck is to practice working in short bursts using the Pomodoro Technique. 

Perfectionism can hold you back from actually launching into action, right? So instead of staring down a giant mountain of tasks, break them into bite-sized chunks called “Pomodoros” – just 25 focused minutes each. 

This way, you don’t get overwhelmed by the sheer size of the project, and each completed Pomodoro feels like a mini-victory, keeping you motivated and moving forward. 

And here’s the real magic: after each 25 minutes, you get a short break! This quick refresh lets your brain recharge and helps you avoid burnout. Plus, knowing you only have 25 minutes to laser-focus your energy can be surprisingly effective at keeping distractions at bay.

Here’s why this is perfect for you:

  • Combats overthinking: You’re a planning pro, but sometimes that can lead to analysis paralysis. Pomodoros help you jump in and DO, trusting your meticulous plan is already there to guide you.
  • Boosts focus: Those short bursts keep your mind sharp and engaged, preventing you from getting lost in the weeds of details.
  • Celebrates progress: Each completed Pomodoro is a badge of honor, reminding you of how much you’ve accomplished, step by focused step.

Remember, your plans are powerful, but action is where the magic happens. Give the Pomodoro Technique a try, and watch your productivity soar – without sacrificing your love for detail!

There's an App for That

I am a huge advocate for using technology to make it easy. Because if it’s easy, you’ll get it done!

And that app is the Sukha Company. Sukha (“happiness” in Sanskrit) is a productivity app/community that offers several productivity features, all designed to help you overcome procrastination and achieve your goals in a calm and supported environment.

  • The soothing flow music: As you dive into your 25-minute Pomodoro, Sukha’s focus-enhancing melodies transport you to a zone of laser focus, drowning out distractions.
  • The AI-powered coaching: Stuck on a task? Sukha’s virtual coaches offer gentle nudges and motivational prompts, keeping you on track and preventing perfectionism from paralyzing your progress.
  • The Pomodoro integration: Imagine setting your Pomodoro timer directly within Sukha! Seamless transition between focused work and refreshing breaks, all within your productivity haven.

That’s what I call a win!
