    Default Define Productivity?

    How do you define productivity? What gives you the satisfaction that you've had a productive day? Is it something that you associate only with work, wether that's your occupation/source of revenue or housekeeping, chores, or do you associate it with leisure time too?

    Balance.

    I feel satisfiedly productive if

    things get crossed off my to-do list (which is a combination of work and personal)
    and the dishes are done when I go to bed
    plus I learned something new, or learned to do something new
    and I exercised
    and whether by accident or by design I spent time with someone conversing in-depth and it was helpful to both of us.

    I don't feel productive if the entire day was about one thing, even if a lot got done on that one thing.

    How about you?

    I feel productive when:

    *I've gotten some unpleasant task done and out of the way
    *I've made tangible progress towards goals
    *I've learned something new
    *I've solved a problem I've been preoccupied with
    *I got around to doing the things I've been putting off for a long time (both work and leisure)
    *I took time to do the things that I really enjoy

    The closest I come to productivity is when I paint and it just comes out naturally. And sometimes I build stuff. And sometimes I clean the house.

    I don't really have much use for the word. The things found productive in the community often seem to me as counterproductive, and if I say my day was well spent, the community might say I wasn't productive at all. I really don't even think about the word much.

    When I feel the day was not wasted.

    That's not productivity, that's a hobby! See the euphoric look in the hamster's eyes.

    When everything on my daily list is crossed off.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    For me it's not really about work.... I always have productive days at work. During the slow season, I get everything done that there is to do, and during the busy season, I get what needs to be done, done.

    But at home, productivity usually means getting chores/housework/projects done, as well has having time to relax.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
