Productivity...What's YOUR Definition?

by Steven Wagenheim 1 replies
If I were to sit here right now and go through my day and say to you, "This
is what my day was like and I feel it was VERY productive" would you agree?

I would think that some would not.

Why?

Well, while what I have done and will do throughout the remainder of this
day may be technically "productive" I am sure there are many here who
could point out where in the process I could be even more productive by
either eliminating certain things or at the very least, outsourcing those tasks
to others.

Just because something you do results in you earning a dollar from it or gets
you on the path TO earning that dollar, doesn't mean it is the most
efficient use of your time, productive or not.

Sure, we can split hairs here and no doubt as this thread continues, we
will split those hairs.

So let me give you a hypothetical example.

Let's say today I created the following:

1. New product
2. Sales page
3. Squeeze page
4. Article pack
5. AR series

Was it a productive day?

Well, some might say, on the surface, yes.

Others might say, "Only if you take all that stuff and use it"

Others might say, "If you had outsourced all that and concentrated on
things that make you money immediately, then yes, it would have been
productive. But now, it was just work that somebody else could have done."

So what's YOUR definition of productivity?

Are YOU as productive in YOUR day as you could be?

    i feel like anything you are doing towards eventually gaining profit is "productive"...

    if i sit and write 200 articles, that was a very productive day... even though it didnt make me any money, im on my way to being profitable because of it.

    Productive yes, but not finished. When I have a day like that I don't stop until I have it all online, tested, and the email sent out to the list (or the WSO posted or whatever it is I'm doing it for)

    With that said, I have dramatically varying degrees of productivity. Some days I'll have to fight really hard to make myself write 10 articles, or put up 5 websites. Other days I crank through an entire list like the one you noted above, write 10,000+ words of content, get 30 or 40 sites online, etc.

    Productive? Yes. They all contribute towards forward progress.

    Productive enough? Not always.
