The ability to produce more or better? Is productivity about quality or quantity?
In other words, are you productive when you produce large amounts of outputs? Or when you produce quality outputs? Or both?
For me, the goal of productivity isn’t to get me to work non-stop and produce a large amount of outputs but it is to help you stay focused on my meaningful work. But to be focused, I’d also need to take care of my “stuff” and distractions, and most importantly, I need to take care of myself.
Motivation doesn’t work. You’ll need the right system and habits.
