What Is Productivity?

Productivity is the rate and/or quality of creating something.  Basically, it is the ability to get things done and make things happen.  There are many ways for humans to be productive, but the key is that higher productivity makes your more valuable to society.

Why Productivity?

Productivity is one of those all-important metrics of the high performer.  It is a vital aspect of improving your life and standing in the world.

I don’t claim to be an expert on anything I write about.

Hell, I hardly claim to be an expert on myself.  😂😂😂

These breakdowns are largely for me.  I use them to record and reference.  Unlike most others on this site though, this goal setting page might actually be useful to the outside observer.

No promises.  You can tell me.

Pulling Your Weight

The most productive people contribute the most to society.  Taking on a larger burden leads to a more fulfilling life.

Rising to the Top

In order to lead a 1% life, you have to become a 1% person.  Become elite by producing more than your peers.

There’s a lot that goes into mastering personal productivity.  Here’s a quick look at what the journey toward great productivity has been like for me.

Learn with Me

My productivity constantly improves.

Yet that was not always the case.

The art of getting things done was one of the first things I had to teach myself when I began seeking success.  I’ve slowly become more effective over the last decade or so.

Today, I’m light years ahead of where I used to be—largely due to learning about Deep Work and reigning in my Habits.

But I still have a long way to go.

I know I can squeeze more out of myself because I have tremendous potential.  Plus, my work ethic is above average and only increasing year over year.  At this point, it’s just about developing consistency.

I’ll continue to produce more over time, as seen on This Site.

My Experience

I’m nowhere near elite productivity.

But I’m definitely getting there.

It started with eliminating some of my worst habits.  Now I’m on the building-myself-up phase.  It’s going well, though I know I can’t become complacent (and I have no desire to).

I know that I have to produce in order to win.

As I become more productive, I notice more aspects of my life falling into place.  That’s exactly how it should be.

In order to reap the fruits of your labor, you have to put in the labor.  More labor means more fruit.  Personally, I becoming more and more committed to the necessary labor.

In fact, I’m already in love with putting the work in.

Good Life Foundation

Goals are fundamental.  They are an essential pillar of a good life.  Without them, it’s easy to get blown to and fro by the winds of the world.

Where Productivity Fits in a Good Life

Productivity is one of the most important pieces of the Achievement puzzle.

For me, it’s a “Tier 3” concept, on the same level as Mindset, Habits, Growth, and High Performance.

It is also closely tied to practices like Journaling.

PRoductivity Fundamentals

01

Habits & Rituals

Gary Vaynerchuk is the first man the adult me could acknowledge as a “hero.”  Without Gary Vee, my hero profiles might not even exist.  Certainly, the whole idea of a G.O.A.T. Rank is a tribute to my admiration for him.

02

Morning Routine

Vishen may be the man I look up to more than any other.  His mission of education reform may be the most important of any of my heroes.  Over the long-term he may be the favorite for the top spot.

03

Bullet Journal

Naruto is the most inspiring character I’ve ever come across.  What I’ve learned from him is unique.  And yet, his story seems inevitable, almost perfect.  Watching Naruto, I felt as if it was written from my own heart.

04

Deep Work & Flow

To this point, I might have learned more from Brian Johnson than any other person on the planet.  He has created a library of classic and modern teachings on becoming the best you and living your best life.

05

State Management

Brendon Burchard is one of the world’s leading high performance coaches.  Before I met Gary Vee, I filled my house with Brendon’s voice almost everyday.  His content was the first I used to brainwash myself.

06

Motivation

Nahko is probably my favorite musician today.  I use his music to heal and connect with my highest self.  There are others I use in the same way.  Yet much Naruto’s story, Nahko’s music often feels written just for me.

Learn With Me

I’m working to become a high performer.

That means I work to increase productivity on a daily, weekly, monthly, yearly basis.

I wouldn’t say I’m a “productivity hacker” per say…  I’m perfectly willing to use brute force.  A good ol’ twelve hour work day has always been cool with me.

Still, I’d rather have the most productive twelve hour workday.

I’m no expert.  But I get better everyday.

I record a lot of what I learn here.

If you want to become more productive, you might want to bookmark this page.  It’s a hub page for everything else I learn about productivity.  It also relates to a variety of other high level topics on this site.

I want to live up to my potential and serve the world on a large scale.

I’ve got to produce great things in order to do that.

Therefore, I will continue to increase my productivity.

 

My Progress So Far

I’ve come a long way from where I started.

I used to suffer from the “dull greys.”  Now I’m always “on”.  This way is much better.

Still, I’m easily distracted and can’t hit “flow state” on command.  I also struggle to eat in a way that maximizes my cognitive functioning.

Becoming an elite performer is a major key to the next thirty years of my life.
