To me, productivity is the ability to produce or create something of value and meaning for myself and others.
As such, productivity as a “knowledge worker” is not just dependent on the time we have to work–it is also dependent on our energy and motivation, our ability to focus, our creativity and insight, and our raw intellectual power. Productivity is not just about how efficient we are or about how many emails we answer. It’s about how much we accomplish that is meaningful. It is how our work is valued in today’s economy.
This course is about better managing our time, of course. But more importantly, it is also going about managing our energy, attention and intelligence.
