Key Ideas

Productivity tools to consider: 🗒

  • Create a schedule for your day and stick to it!
  • Chunk: Group like tasks together into blocks of time, then focus on those specifics. 
  • RPM: Short for Results-oriented/Purpose-driven/Massive Action Plan: a system to uncover what you want and then reap the rewards. 
  • Harness the power of habit and productivity will become second nature. 

Productivity defined

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.

Your aim with productivity

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.

Look to others

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.

Turn productivity into a habit

Better productivity requires some work on your side. It may take up to three months to form a new habit. Once it becomes a habit, it becomes easier to integrate into a routine.

Visualize the outcome

You're not failing to reach your goals because you are incapable - you're failing because you're trying to focus on too many things at the same time.

Instead of focusing on what you need to do to reach your goal, visualize the outcome. If you think of the outcome instead of the steps to get there, you're more likely to pursue your goal. Then the steps will become a couple of manageable tasks.

Utilize N.E.T. time

N.E.T. stands for “No Extra Time,” and it’s based on the concept that you always have time during your day that you can fill with learning.

An important step in achieving any goal is to continue learning at every opportunity. Feed your mind during downtime. It could mean listening to a podcast while commuting.

The Old Productivity Formula

The basic productivity formula(productivity= output divided by input) worked well in the industrial age as the output and input were clearly defined and measurable.

Today’s leaders need innovative solutions to measure and improve productivity in a knowledge-based workplace, as the measurement of output and input is not what it was.

Quality And Quantity

While assigning value to the output of knowledge workers, we cannot simply measure the output like before.

Coders and doctors cannot be measured by the hour, as their output is not uniform or consistent every hour.

Your resolve

The secret to effectively setting and achieving your goals is to have a large vision and an achievable plan.

The pursuit matters

The pursuit matters just as much as the goal.
Consider why you're pursuing your goal and how the journey to achieve it will help you grow as a person.

The right scope

People often give up on their resolutions because they set unattainable goals.

Try to set a goal that you can reasonably achieve within one year. If it is challenging to complete it in your set timeframe, you might become overwhelmed and give up. If the goal will take more than one year, try and set a benchmark for what you'd like to accomplish in a year.
