Addressing Myths About Productivity
  • During a given day, if you accomplish what you intended to do, you had a productive day.
  • Certain ‘productive’ work like answering email or replying to messages is actually a distraction, and can be better managed by blocking specific time slots for execution.
  • You are not on track if you are not doing what is the main objective of the day.
  • Work does not mean ‘paid labor’ but encompasses community service, side projects and even hobbies.
