Productivity

productivity


A productive worker is a successful worker.

In
economics, productivity measures the output per input unit, such as
labor, capital, or any other resource. For the economy, it is often
calculated as the ratio of gross domestic product (GDP) to hours
worked.

Labor productivity can be
further broken down by sector to study trends in labor growth, wage
levels, and technological progress. Corporate and shareholder
profits are both directly related to productivity growth.

This, in turn, is used to
predict business cycles and predict future levels of GDP growth.

In addition, production
capacity and utilization are used to gauge demand and inflationary
pressures.

Labour productivity

The most commonly reported
measure of productivity published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics
is labor productivity. It is based on the relationship between GDP
and total hours worked in the economy. The increase in labor
productivity occurs as a result of an increase in the capital
available to each employee (capital deepening), training and
experience of employees (structure, functions of the workforce) and
technological improvement (multifunctional productivity growth).

However, productivity is
not an indicator of the health of an economy at any point in time.

Productivity gains can
occur in both recession and boom times, as was the case in the late
1990s, so the economic context must be considered when analyzing
market data.

It is interpreted as
the contribution of management, technology, strategy and financial
innovations to economic development.

Also known as multifactor
productivity (MFP), this measure of economic output compares the
amount of goods and services produced to the amount of combined
inputs used to produce those goods and services. Inputs can include
labor, capital, energy, materials and services purchased.

Productivity and investment

Unless productivity
increases significantly, this limits potential profit in terms of
wages, corporate profits and standard of living.

Investment in an economy
corresponds to the savings rate, because investment must be financed
by savings. Lower savings rates can lead to lower investment rates
and lower labor productivity and real wage growth rates.

Here are some ways to be
more productive:-

Find ways to divide up your
work day (or night). It’s good to break up tasks that take time or
are physically demanding in some way. For example, let’s say you’re
a photographer and you have about five hours to edit in an evening.
Work three hours, then have breakfast or paint your nails. Then
finish this job. If you work out a lot, you should also plan
stretching breaks in your day.

Avoid addictive activities
that waste time. Playing on a smartphone or on the Internet can also
be very addictive. Avoid them when trying to do something. Review
your FB for the last five minutes of your work day (perhaps as a
reward?) Also, set limits for “wasting time” mini-sessions.
It’s okay to need a mental break, but don’t get caught.

Take daily measurements for
significant results

The more you achieve your
meaningful results, the more productive you will feel and the happier
you will be. So focus your attention on the actions that move the
needle towards meaningful results.

When you complete these
tasks, you will be amazed at your progress. You will feel
productive! And there are good reasons for your inner joy; They know
that these actions will help you achieve your goals and shape your
life.

Identify essential but
unimportant tasks.

Once you define your
meaningful outcomes, you have a better chance of doing things that
will move you on to the important things in your life. However, you
can’t just focus on the most important results, because there are
always actions to be taken, even if they are insignificant. (There
are also tasks we would like to do, although those tasks are not
really necessary.)

It is important to identify
tasks that are necessary but not critical. We all take actions that
may not give us meaningful results, but are necessary to maintain our
relationships or finances.

Limit distractions before
they happen

The temptation to try
social media can peak in the summer (or when you’re working remotely)
when half the office is on vacation or flexible hours and your energy
(and motivation) naturally fades. “Every time we close apps, our
brain releases a dose of dopamine, making our phones more engaging
than our actual work.” Do not fight against it; Instead,
intentionally check social media. Scan messages to see what’s going
on, then put your phone on airplane mode for the next hour or so. As
you grapple with distractions and get things done, give yourself some
time to relax.

Start With The Hardest

hard

Whether it’s calling an
obnoxious customer or perusing various data points, effective
employees prioritize their toughest tasks. Getting through the
toughest and most important point on the to-do list drains mental
energy that would otherwise have been wasted worrying about it. And
that makes it manageable compared to the rest of the day.

Take The Sun

“If you’re not exposed
to enough natural light, you can experience jet lag,” said an
associate professor of architecture at the University of Washington’s
Integrated Design Laboratory. “This happens because your
circadian rhythm, in which your body reacts to changes in light
intensity between day and night, is disrupted. Try going outside in
the morning when your body wants to glow, something during the day.”
Stand near a bar window if you feel like you’re slowing down.
Getting enough sunlight can crank up your internal clock and give it
the energy it needs.”

If you want to write a content article, then do just that: “30-60 minutes” infinite focus only on this. No social media, no research, no dining.

If you have to write an article on the site, do not postpone a whole day but set a strict time limit, for example 60 minutes. Productivity goes through the roof like this.

Start An Adjournment
Journal

It’s natural to shy away
from work, but careless procrastination reduces productivity. To
know when to procrastinate, Knight recommends keeping a time journal.
Don’t ignore it, plan it. Adjust your schedule by adding grace
periods for wasted time when you’re most focused (and when you’re
not).

  1. This article will definitely assist me in being more productive. You outlined some important points that I will take into consideration in my work. I always tend to procrastinate or complete work that is not 100% so this article will definitely assist me in being more productive. Thank you for this. 

    1. Thank you for your honesty.
      It’s hard to be really productive.
      We often make mistakes, but we must also learn how to be more productive. Apply what we learn about it.

  2. Hey great article!

    Productivity is an essential skill to learn and you have to master it too! Unfortunately at the moment I’m not a really productive person maybe that’s why I’m always stressed and can’t seem to find peace or actually finish a task with satisfaction. For this reason I think I’m definitely going to take note of some of these points and start acting on them now!

    I have made a small timetable so hopefully that a start to me being productive!

    Thanks for this!

    1. Thanks for the comment and sincerity.

      It is essential to be honest with ourselves, this is where the change begins.

      Without fully automated good habits one cannot see a beneficial change.

      Respectfully

      Vasile,
