Being busy and always moving through tasks is not the same as being productive.
Productivity is getting the results you aim for with less time and effort. When you are productive, you won't be chasing deadlines or running behind schedule to get done. You'll probably be ahead of schedule.
If you want to increase your productivity, think about what is driving you to do so. What is the purpose that's driving your actions? Is it to be a better version of yourself? Do you want to take better care of the people around you or the environment?
Your ultimate purpose will help steer you when you face challenges.
To help you calculate productivity and increase it, find some models of what productivity means and doesn't mean to you personally.
If you desire to increase your productivity at work, model your work after a colleague known for their productivity. Ask them if they're using any tools and how they designed their structure.
