Do you feel like you know everything about productivity?
For example, that if you’re driven, you put the hours in, you push yourself further – you’ll get to the end of that seemingly endless to-do list.
After all, there’s nothing between you and a clean sheet of paper but hard work.
And hey, you read this kind of blog. You’re on top of the latest research. Aren’t you?
Not Everything You Believe About Productivity May Be True
I love productivity. In fact, this website has become an interesting mix of self-care and self-kindness mingled with productivity. How to get things done without destroying yourself in the process. How to work in efficient ways, and still have time to play.
As a psychologist, I try and keep up to date with the latest research, and sometimes I assume that everyone around me also does. But in fact, the gap between what most people think they know about productivity and what actually works? It’s vast. So when I was sent the below infographic on productivity, I thought it would be a fun thing to share.
Especially because it includes some simple steps that everyone can take to combat these myths and stay productive.
What’s your take? Is this all common knowledge to you, or were there any surprises?
I’ll admit that while I know number 4, it’s something I never manage to do. So that’s my action for this week.
Which action will you take?
