Being too productive can damage relationships

Follow Dave on LinkedIn

Be careful about being TOO productive. While you strive to achieve goals and climb the ladder, you must be careful not to pay the highest penalty: Damaged relationships.

Avoid treating the people around you like checkboxes on a list. Building healthy, strong relationships—both personal and professional—is the key to long-term success.

You’ll have a strong support system that will help you climb that ladder much faster than doing it alone. It’ll also boost your motivation to succeed.

✔️ Protect your time with friends and family.

✔️ Make an effort to do fun things together as a team.

✔️ During a conversation, focus on the person rather than looking at your phone.

Relationships are the most important thing in life…cherish every moment.


Systems are the secret behind consistent success. The key isn’t perfection but consistency. Learn more ways to reach your goal time after time in my LinkedIn Learning course, Delivering Results Effectively:
