FEW TIPS TO BE
MORE
PRODUCTIVE
Mona Quenawy
M.D
Ain Shams university
Productivity isn’t everything, but in the long run it is almost
everything. A country’s ability to improve its standard of living over
time depends almost entirely on its ability to raise its output per
worker.
Paul Krugman, The Age of Diminishing Expectations (1994)
PRODUCTIVITY
IN SCIENTIFIC
TERMINOLOGY
• the quality, state, or fact of being
able to generate, create,
enhance, or bring forth goods
and services
MEASUREMENT
•
Gross domestic product (GDP)
is the standard measure of the
value added created through
the production of goods and
services in a country during a
certain period. As such, it also
measures the income earned
from that production,
• One standard measure of productivity
is output per worker-hour, or the ratio
between the number of hours worked to
total output.
• You can also measure your productivity
per week or month if each unit of
production takes more than an hour to
create
IS IT BENEFICIAL
TO BE
INTEGRATED
• With growth in productivity, an economy is
able to produce—and consume—
increasingly more goods and services for
the same amount of work.
• Productivity is important to individuals
(workers and consumers), business
leaders, and analysts (such as
policymakers and government
statisticians).
FAMOUS
QUOTES
LET S START
“PRODUCTIVITY IS BEING ABLE TO
DO THINGS THAT YOU WERE
NEVER ABLE TO DO BEFORE.”
FRANZ KAFKA , WRITER
“IT’S NOT ALWAYS THAT WE NEED
TO DO MORE BUT RATHER THAT
WE NEED TO FOCUS ON LESS.”
NATHAN W. MORRIS, AUTHOR AND
FINANCE EXPERT
“MY GOAL IS NO LONGER TO GET
MORE DONE, BUT RATHER TO
HAVE LESS TO DO.”
FRANCINE JAY, AUTHOR

• . “You can fool everyone else, but you can’t fool your own mind.”
David Allen, author and productivity consultant
•
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
Wayne Gretzky, Canadian former professional ice hockey player
•
. “Simplicity boils down to two steps: Identify the essential. Eliminate the rest.”
Leo Babauta, blogger
•
9. “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”
Albert Einstein, German theoretical physicist
DON’T BE BUSY • BE PRODUCTIVE
Be kind to yourself and
your mistakes
• You’ve probably spent years cultivating your
work habits–both good and bad, consciously or
subconsciously–and those won’t immediately
change
1. Make a reasonable to-do
list...
…don’t overwhelm
yourself.
To-do lists often fail
because we make
them way too complex, or
the tasks are unequal.
Some tasks will take a long
time, others won’t take any
time at all.
This creates an unbalance
in the way we distribute
our time.
What happens then is that
our to-do list then
becomes a procrastination
tool. Yes, that’s right.
Because then we do the
easy stuff, and then
become really distracted
on the hard stuff
1-PRIORITY
ARRANGE YOUR
TASKS BASED ON
ITS SIGNIFICANCE
2-
CULTIVATE
DEEP WORK
3-AVOID
DISTRACTION
LIST AND MARK
THEM WELL
MINIMIZE THEIR
EXPOSURE
• 4- Set small goals for the tasks.
• With every new project or
assignment, the scope may seem
too large. But once you start
breaking it down and realizing
what can be accomplished, you’ll
notice how each part builds
upon the other.
5-DIVID TASKS INTO SMALLER
PIECES ON SMALL PERIOD
6-LEARN FROM
SUCCESSES AS
WELL AS MISTAKES
”
7-PLAN
FOR WHEN
THINGS GO
WRONG
8-TAKE BREAKS
TO IMPROVE YOUR CAPACITY EVERY
45 MINUTES FOR 5 TO 10 MINUTES
9-MAKE FEWER
DECISIONS.
ELIMINATE
INEFFICIENT
COMMUNICATION
.
10-GET BETTER
AT SAYING “NO
11-FOCUS ON
ONE GOAL AT
A TIME.
12-STOP
MULTITASKING
13-FIND A METHOD
FOR DELEGATING
AND FOLLOWING UP.
14-GROUP SIMILAR
TASKS TOGETHER.
15- CREATE A PROACTIVE
DASHBOARD.
THIS IDEA IS FROM NOAH KAGAN,
THE FOUNDER OF APPSUMO.
ESSENTIALLY, THIS IS A MEASURABLE
TASK LIST. IF YOU’RE NOTICING THAT
A CERTAIN TASK IS HAVING A BIG
EFFECT ON OUR BUSINESS OR IS A
NECESSARY TASK THAT YOU NEED
TO KEEP DOING, THEN LIST OUT THE
NUMBER OF TIMES THAT YOU NEED
TO DO THAT TASK EACH WEEK. THE
GOAL HERE IS TO RECORD INPUTS,
NOT JUST OUTCOMES.

THE GOAL HERE IS TO RECORD INPUTS, NOT JUST OUTCOMES.
