"Slow down to speed up" & other truths about time & productivity, with Vaida Cesnulyte

"Slow down to speed up" & other truths about time & productivity, with Vaida Cesnulyte

Episode 49. "You can never be productive if you’re exhausted."

Vaida Cesnulyte is a numbers girl from Lithuania who has her Bachelor's and Masters's degrees in Applied Mathematics. She then moved to Finland to get her Ph.D. in Applied Physics in the field of Climate Change. 

While Vaida loved understanding the climate and physical processes behind it and enjoyed presenting her research at  various conferences, while collaborating with other scientists, she realized that the world of academia was not her future. 

So after 4.5 years, she walked away. For the next 4 years Vaida worked at jobs from Marketing Analyst to following her love of cars and worked at a small, private car import firm. While there, she started to put systems and tools in place to optimize and automate it better. 

That was when Vaida realized she had the skills, knowledge, and desire to help people not only be more productive and organize their time better but also help them set and achieve their goals.

In January 2021, Vaida started her consulting business helping established business owners grow their 6 figure businesses to multiple 6 & 7 figures all while working fewer hours. 

Vaida focuses on up-leveling their productivity skillset and becoming better at setting goals, organizing, prioritizing, managing emails and the calendar, eliminating distractions, and changing the mindset around effective work. 

Vaida is a firm believer that people are meant to do more in life than just work and this is the focus of her conversation with Linda. 

In addition to discussing toxic productivity and its effect on us, they cover blending work and life, and what Vaida advises clients do to reach their goals.

Vaida’s insight:

“When you buy a book, you also buy the time to read that book…”

“Achieving goals is a habit. Not achieving goals is also a habit.”

“Other people are masters at filling our calendars.”

“The most important lesson is to focus on the things we can control: our thoughts, our values, our actions…”

Productivity Consultant

I am a numbers girl from Lithuania. After graduating with my Bachelor's and Masters's in Applied Mathematics, I moved to Finland to study Ph.D. in Applied Physics, Climate Change field. While I loved understanding the climate and physical processes behind it, presenting my research in various conferences, and collaborating with other scientists, I realized I do not see my future in academia and after 4.5 years I walked away. I wanted to use my Math knowledge in a different way.

For about 4 years I did various different jobs from Marketing Analyst to car import (I love cars!) in a small private firm. While being there, I started to put systems and tools in place to optimize work and automate it better. That was a breaking point when I realized I have the skills, the knowledge, and the desire to help people to be more productive and organize their time better. Goal Setting and Time Management have always fascinated me. I read tens of books on the topic, and also when I look back, I have been setting and achieving goals since school. I loved goals and I loved to achieve them even more!

In January 2021 I started my consulting business where I help established business owners, especially Attorney Owners, to grow their 6fig businesses towards multiple 6fig or 7fig while working fewer hours. I focus on up-leveling productivity skillset and becoming better at setting goals, organizing, prioritizing, managing emails and the calendar, eliminating distractions, and changing the mindset around effective work.

I am a firm believer that people are meant to do more in life than just work and I help to make it happen.
