☆  productivity  生産性


Productivity used to be just about the time it took for companies to produce things. For example, the productivity rate of the Toyota factory when they produce cars. However, these days, if someone it talking about productivity, it’s usually about the rate at which they get their own work done.

Just like yesterday, everyone is always thinking about ways to increase their productivity (and efficiency). The useful phrase this week is, “Planning my day has increased my productivity.” Nowadays, with a young baby, planning my day is pretty much impossible! However, a little planning definitely helps with my productivity. So, each night, I email myself a few of the tasks I want or need to get done the next day. It’s not a perfect system, but it’s helping me improve my productivity a little bit at least.

Do you plan your day? Does it increase your productivity?
