Some people can mange their time and energy but they lack focus and are easily distracted. While for others they can mange their energy and attention bu can’t mange their time so they end up procrastinating a lot. Some can manage their their time and focus but can’t mange their energy, so they drag their feet at every task. Your time, energy and focus are key factors to productivity.

Always question blanket productivity advice

Chris beilives that it’s ok to ignore conventional wisdom if something works better for you. For instance if you can get work done before you retire to bed, then do so. He believes that we all different mindsets and different priorities so no productivity advice can work 100% for everyone.

However if you are looking for tactics that you can use to get things then done then you can check 100 time, energy, and attention hacks to be more productive written by Chris.  Here you see all the tactics he used to get productive and you can work with one that resonates with you.

Productivity isn’t about how much you produce, it’s about how much you accomplish

This is the best quote i have heard about productivity. In a world where statistics and measurements are the standards of the day, people measure their productivity on a daily basis. This isn’t bad except that you don’t become productive by measuring how well you produce. The reason is very simple and Chris does outline the problem which is that stats and measurements do produce a limited picture of your productivity.

When it comes to human productivity I agree with Chris that your accomplishments matter more than your stats on productivity. Focusing on measurements will diminish your productivity level.
