Respect 2021

Respect Productivity 2021


Respect productivity in 2021.

I know we are so excited to be done with 2020 and walk into 2021. However, we have to ask ourselves, what’s going to be different? What are we going to demand out of our lives? I learned persistence, perseverance, and respect.

Not just respect in terms of the word but respect in terms of the acronym.  We’ll discuss more on that shortly.  Once we truly learn to respect our situation, we can turn the impossible to the possible!

Many of us saw 2020 as the start of a new decade and the mark of something new in our lives. Because we experience some unexpected turns, it’s hard to see The gains. I say using the mark of 2020 as a mat or a stepping stone throughout this decade.

I like to use the acronym respect to help you leverage massive gains in 2021


R- Reset
E- Educate
S- Set Boundaries
P- Productivity
E- Energy
C- Connect and Community
T- Thoughts and Clarity

R.E.S.P.E.C.T Acronym Breakdown

R stands for RESET

This past year we’ve learned to reset and pivot our goals, needs, and priorities. We’ve learned to raise the necessity, and not just hope but do.

Reset your mind and raise your expectations:

Take what you learned in 2020 and what you didn’t like and reset them in 2021.

We could be highly successful, but we’re just going through the motions if we have no fulfillment.

A person can make himself happy, or miserable, regardless of what is actually happening ‘outside,’ just by changing the contents of consciousness.”
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Let’s not just focus on what we want to achieve, but who do we want to be?  Think adjectives, not just nouns.  

Think about an engaged parent, an active listener, a productive entrepreneur, a high performing human.

 When you think of Total Fit Boss Chick as a team or me as Brentney Parks, I want to be known as an engaging teacher that inspires greater fulfillment, productivity, and high performance passively. 

  • What are you excited about?
  • Where do you want to go? 
  • Who do you want to help?
  • What difference do you want to make? 
  • What do you want to change?

Are you excited about your family, hobbies, business, or maybe new possibilities?

What do you need to reset or change to get there?  

Is it limited thoughts? Is it your time allocation? Maybe your skills.

I suggest taking out a pen and paper and writing down what you want to be known for, who do you want to represent in 2021 and beyond. 

Better yet, put it in a journal and set your intentions, and reflect on it daily.  

So R is for Reset your mind Raise your need, desires, and expectations.

E stands for EDUCATE.

This past year we’ve learned the need to educate ourselves, whether it’s strengthening our skills or educating ourselves on what’s going on around us. We must always be learning and honing in on our desires to grow and teach others.

For example,

If you didn’t like the instability of your job, create a profitable side gig.

If you have a side gig, but it hasn’t been profitable, change it in 2021.

What are the top skills you need to grow, develop, or create to make that change?  

List 3-5 skills you need to input so you can alter the output.

It doesn’t matter if it’s getting to your ideal weight, learning a new language, or starting a business. 

What do you need to learn to reach your goals?  If you want to have a great email list, you would want to learn to write better copy. Maybe you want to be known for your awesome new podcast; then you want to learn how to speak to your audience in a way they want to listen, or maybe you want to learn to be a better communicator so you would study how to be an active listener or the importance of power words.

Again, E is for EDUCATE. What education or skills do you need to become who you want to represent? 


Setting boundaries is a necessity when we are going after what we want.  In case anyone needs the reminder, it’s ok not to say “yes” to everything.  It’s ok to say, “no.”  You have to say “no” so you can say “yes” to more things you want to say “yes” to.  

If you have a history of being a people pleaser, it’ll be harder at first but practice saying “no.”  

How many times have you given up your time for someone or something else?

How many times have you checked social media or even your email before setting your own plans into action for the day?

How many times have you taken a phone call or any other interruption when you weren’t really available to talk?

How many times have you tried to multitask because you were overwhelmed and you thought it’d help you catch up?

Create a space of discipline and create boundaries to:

  • Protect your goals and ambitions
  • Prepare for pushback 
  • Protect your self-care time
  • Control your physical space and requirements
  • Develop a system for success
  • Remain present in your thoughts and your space
  • Determine what your non-negotiables

So S is for SETTING BOUNDARIES a necessity when we are going after what we want.


Earlier this year, we discussed the difference between being productive and busy. Also, we learned that busy doesn’t equate to productivity; results equate to productivity.

What action steps do you need to create to make your goals a reality. 

Productivity isn’t just about getting work done. It’s about making consistent strides in the most critical areas of your life.

This includes plowing down the need to be perfect and taking action.  We are productive when we are focused and not frantic when we are relaxed and not rushed.  

  • Productivity is choosing important over urgent and trading perfection for purpose. 
  • If it’s important, it belongs on the calendar. 
  • Schedule your tasks and block them out on your calendar.  
  • Schedule time to increase your education, rest and reset your thoughts, schedule your work, and play.  

P is for PRODUCTIVITY to schedule what matters most and consistently make strides toward them.

E stands for ENERGY

We have learned to maintain high energy by managing our productivity highs and lows in our day.  We have to plan according to our energy levels and take breaks. 

Know your Circadian rhythm, are you:

The morning bird peaks between 4-5 am and again at 8 am but drags a bit in the afternoon.

The afternoon lark peaks between 8 am and 12 pm and are perfect for corporate jobs.

The night owl peaks in the afternoon but will drag in the mornings.

Despite our situation, our mindset/energy is what will drive our response and what comes next. It is essential to be well-rested so that our work is always the best it can be.

Listen to your energy and allow yourself the ability to:

  • Be grateful for everything.  
  • Think positive
  • Meditate or Pray
  • Be present in your life.
  • Be accountable and responsible.

Your energy level affects your mindset. Your mindset affects your productivity.  Lack of productivity dampens your fulfillment and your joy.

E is for our ENERGY, which is the driving force to our joy.

C stands for CONNECT and COMMUNITY

We have discussed having the courage to ask for help, connect with like minds and build a community, and challenge ourselves not to complain about the struggle but understanding it’s all a part of the process to greatness.

It’s not always “how to” complete a task; it’s “who” can help us get it done.  Who can we connect with to mutually grow, learn, and earn?  

How can we connect to our desires, so they align with our priorities?  

We must continuously look for members to grow our community to motivate us and inspire us beyond our expectations.

So, C is for having the courage to build a connection and growing a community. 

T stands for THOUGHTS and Clarity

This year we have learned to seek clarity constantly. 

  • Who do we want to be? 
  • How do we want to be perceived? 
  • What do we want to be known for?
  • How can we serve? 

Thoughts generate a vision that creates clarity that fuels our intentions! When we have clear intentions, we can achieve whatever we envision.
