I’m still struggling with being productive. However, my experience with weight loss has shown me that consistently taking a quantitative measure can provide enough information for you to modify your behaviour, without any sort of explicit goal or specific pre-ordained behavioural changes.
So I’m going to use the invisible clock I acquired a while ago to give me a quantitative measure of what I’m doing. It’s set to go off every half hour. I’ll record what I’m doing every half hour. At the end of a few days, I should have a quantitative measure of my productivity.
Once I get into a groove, I might decrease the sampling interval to an hour.
