When do you feel most productive?

Productivity is one of those buzzwords that’s hard to nail down.

Some people consider it to be getting as much stuff done in the day as possible. Others consider it to be getting work done despite adversity, such as having a lot of responsibilities back home. Yet others consider it getting tasks done at a high quality level, but not necessarily quickly.

Whatever your opinion on productivity, just working without a goal isn’t productive at all. I personally use the Pomodoro method developed by Francesco Cirillo. This method revolves around assigning tasks to 25 minute blocks. A task can run over a single block and into the next, but each block must be dedicated to a single task. After 25 minutes, you take a 5 minute break. After 4 such blocks (2 hours), you take a 30 minute break.

This system works well because it gives you time to get up to speed on a task, while also allowing breaks so that your brain doesn’t become mush by the end of the work day.

What method do you use for daily productivity? Leave it in the comments below.
