Effective productivity

Productivity is an element of my theoretical curricula devoted to being a better knowledge worker. Chris Bailey provides a top ten list of lessons learned in productivity:

  1. Work on the highest leverage tasks first. Focus on those that deliver the most value because they provide the best return for time and attention.
  2. Effectiveness is boring. Basically: eat well, sleep enough, and exercise.
  3. Question blanket advice. No approach will work for everyone all of the time.
  4. Form good habits.
  5. Productivity = Time + Energy + Attention
  6. There are hundreds of tactics. Learn a few of them!
  7. Working too hard and too long isn't actually more productive.
  8. Know why you want to get something done to stay motivated.
  9. Be kind to yourself.
  10. It's not about how much you produce; it's about how much you accomplish.
