What does 'productivity' mean to you?

Making the time to do the stuff you plan to do. To me it's the action part of planning.

Re: [CHAT] I'm out of time, all the time!

@lokifish I think that's so important because sometimes I plan to do more than I actually can, and I can feel like a failure and stress out. But then I remember that I still did quite a lot of work leading towards the completion of what I planned, and that helps me to feel better Smiley Happy

@Ben-RO Yes that's right! Sometimes I plan on making the time to watch a movie at home the next day, and when I do finish the movie and tick it off my to-watch list, I feel very productive even though it has nothing to do with working, studying, or doing housework! Smiley LOL

What does 'productivity' mean to you?

 

 

To me, productivity refers to the amount of effort you put into something and the effectiveness of it.

Being productive is a sensation I feel when I have genuinely tried my best and don't have the feeling of 'wasting time'.

Hiya Smiley Happy

 

What does 'productivity' mean to you?

For me, productivity is completing tasks and being in 'flow', like feeling good when making progress on something

Re: [CHAT] I'm out of time, all the time!

How do I make the most of my time?

 

I have recently become obsessed with 'to do' lists and have found then very helpful. I used to become very stressed whenever I made a list because it always seemed to be never-ending. However, I have been able to recognise the effort put into each activity which gets me past this.

I sometimes worry I spend too much time on the list than actually doing the activities.

 

I really approach life with a 'don't waste time' attitude. This is still quite new to me but I find i'm much more satisfied with my efforts over the course of a day.

Rewards are also a great incentive to get things done, especially the boring or unpleasant activities like assignments and housework.
