What Does Productivity Mean to You?

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of being productive?   

Before you continue, briefly jot it down on a notepad or in your journal. 

Think about your definition before you continue. 

This is a fantastic way to ensure your perspective is where it needs to be to grow or scale a productive online business.

 So, productivity has a variable definition and affects every aspect of your life, both business and personal. When you think about it, the decision you make and the actions you take affect your productivity in one way or another. 

The direction of your business, your creativity, your journey in life, and your health, very much depend on the type of productivity you produce. 

As you grow or scale your business, completing the tasks required to achieve specific sales goals is essential. Including things such as gaining more audience of ideal clients who will buy from you or being the next top expert within your industry are a few examples of being productive. 

And in your personal life, a few examples could include following a daily or weekly budget to buy a big purchase, paying bills on time, setting up auto-pay, or following healthy exercise or eating routines such as meal planning and walking daily.

 While productivity can have variable perspectives and definitions depending on who you ask, it is vital to ensure that the procedures and strategies you implement lead to high rewards for your business or goal. At the same time, the effort you put into it is worth it when the results show it is worth it. A basic definition of productivity can be measured with a simple math equation

Productivity equals your output divided by your input

If your effort is greater than the reward you see, think about whether it is actually worth it. If you’ve determined the result is good enough, then it is worth the effort. All of this is really up to you to decide. However, be sure to use the math equation above in real life to be sure you are being realistic.

For example, if you are a writer and wrote six articles in three hours, your productivity would be calculated as two articles per hour. You could compare this number to your overall writing goal to see where you need to improve or work harder.

Another way to be sure you are the most productive is to create a list of all the activities you did each day and compare them to the goals you wish to accomplish. 

How do they compare

How do they compare? 

Do the tasks you’ve chosen get you closer to your destination or goal or support you in any way? 

Don't be too surprised if many of the tasks you do end up not achieving your goal. It is easy to equate being busy to being productive.

Once you take a moment to evaluate your actions, you can change your plans and daily task lists to do what needs to be done to accomplish your business goals. 

Starting each day with a primary goal and task list, implementing proper time management strategies, and taking advantage of tools and technology are a few tips to improve your productivity throughout the day.  

Remember, improving your productivity is a must if you want to achieve your goals as you run a successful online business.

Summertime – that time of the year when everything slows down and moves outdoors. 

“Less work, more play” is often the motto found on the minds of many. 

It’s a time when you spend a day at the beach or lake, or take an afternoon off work just to be outside. 

Kids are out of school for the summer.  Vacations and holidays are on the schedule.
