Inside the Psychology of Productivity

Productivity, or at least how productive you consider yourself, is surprisingly subjective. As a leader, your most important work–mulling strategy, blue-skying for innovation, imagining the future–may not feel all that productive because it is open-ended and the outcome is uncertain. At the same time, more (subjectively) unimportant work, like clearing out your inbox, can leave you quite satisfied.

No matter how you try to trick yourself into feeling more productive, there are just 24 hours in a day, and you almost certainly are not making the most of them. Here’s what you can do about that.

  • Get to the Root of Your Procrastination
  • Focus on Progress, Not on To-Dos
  • Beware of Time Thieves
  • Be In-the-Moment With Everything You Do
