There are a lot of productivity resources and there are tons of productivity tips. But what is the best productivity tip? If we must choose only one productivity tip, what would that be?
Of course, there is no single answer to this question. Different people have different perspectives, so they may have different answers which are equally valid. In fact, it’s this diversity that makes me interested to ask this question to you. While I can see from only one perspective, together we can see from multiple perspectives. That will enrich us all.
I spent some time to think about this question. The first answers I came up with didn’t feel right; somehow I felt that there was something missing there. Eventually, I found something I feel good about.
Here is my best productivity tip: follow your heart.
There are three reasons why I think follow your heart is the best productivity tip:
- To be productive, first of all we must do the right things. It won’t do you any good if you produce a lot of results only to find later that you have done the wrong things. Following your heart helps you find what matters to you. You can then be sure that whatever you do, you are doing the right things.
- If you follow your heart, you will feel good about yourself and enjoy the process. You will be willing to learn more and work harder since this is something that matters to you. At the end, you will produce more.
- Following your heart helps you overcome difficult times. You will have a burning fire within that help you go through them.
That is my answer. As I said above, different people have different perspectives. So I would like to ask you: what is your best productivity tip?
