How Productive Are You Really?


We’ve been chatting for weeks

about productivity. Focus Trackers, Worry Walls, Responsibility Maps, we’ve covered it all. What we haven’t covered, though, is how to know how productive you’re actually being. And that’s what we spoke about tonight during episode 6.


The Productivity Trio

So, how do we know if we’re actually being productive or if we’re just running around doing “busy” work? Ask yourself these three questions:

  1. Are you working on what you’re responsible for?
  2. Are you working toward a clear goal?
  3. Are you being (pro)active or reactive?

If your answers are:

  1. Yes
  2. Yes
  3. (Pro)active

respectively, then you’re working productively! If not, then you have some room for improvement.

The Ultimate Productivity Tool

To make it a tiny bit easier to gauge your own productivity, I’ve created this nifty tool to track your progress across these three categories. Questions on how to use it? Check out Episode 6 of the Productivity Mini Series!
