This is so funny @lokifish because I definitely would not be able to continue if I couldn't sprinkle thyme on every single thing I cook! Smiley LOL

It also reminds me of that joke where a mother is listening to a song, and the daughter asks, "Well, did he?!" And the mother is confused, "Did who what, dear?" And the daughter quickly replies, "Did Parsley save Rosemary in time??" Smiley Tongue

On a more related note, I'm looking forward to this GR!!

Hello!

 

What does 'productivity' mean to you?

 

To me, productivity means doing something that works towards a goal I have previously set out to obtain, e.g. to study a certain thing, to read a certain amount of my book, to clean a certain area of my house, etc. It doesn't alawys mean actual completion of the goal, but rather working up to completing that goal Smiley Happy

Hmmm… I guess I'd say productivity to me means being able to achieve the things we want/need to do within a reasonable time frame, and (hopefully) without too much stress!

Heya @Chloee! That's a really good point about how just because we may not achieve a certain goal doesn't mean that the effort we put in wasn't us being productive Smiley Happy

SUP @lokifish @Alison5 @Chloee! Nice to see you all! (even though i can't actually see you i suppose...). 

 

 

What does 'productivity' mean to you?

 

Productivity is such a tricky word to define! Like in simple terms, it's just doing stuff i guess... but what stuff? Is being productive doing lots of work and making lots of money? Or does being productive include things like looking after yourself and taking a moment to do absolutely nothing sometimes.... 

 

The more I grow as a person the more i think about productivity as doing all the things that help me live a good life. So not just working hard all the time, but also taking some time to practice stuff that helps life be good, which means for me, sometimes being productive means doing not much at all!
