What is the Meaning of Productivity?

Doing more work in less time is one way to look at productivity.

I, however, like to think of productivity as accomplishing what you need to do so you have time to do what you want to do. Working longer or working harder do not necessarily make you more productive.

Barrie Davenport recently wrote this on the becoming minimalist blog:
We’ve been conditioned to believe that the more we schedule our lives, the more we can multi-task, the longer and harder we work, the more valuable we are to society. Perhaps we are more valuable to those we accommodate with our adrenaline-fueled lifestyles. But we are diminishing ourselves in the process.
Learning how and when you work best, having the right tools for the job and being prepared to work all contribute to productivity.

How do you judge your value to society or your workplace or your family? What motivates you to get work done? Click on Post a Comment, below, and tell us.

    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.
