Productive, it’s how every entrepreneur wants to feel. It’s empowering to look at something that has been built or created and say “This was me. I did this. I made this.”
Or to know you are getting things done, and be able to look at your list at the end of the day or week, and see all the items checked off.
Productivity is different for different people, but the feeling is the same, accomplishment. For one person, productivity is creating a presentation or meeting the needs of a specific client. For another, it may mean developing a new vaccine or coming up with a new product.
For you, it may be completely different, but you know the good feeling you get by putting in a productive day.
The Productivity Battle
Being productive creates a sense of accomplishment. It promotes the feeling of accomplishment and well-being to feel happy and joyful.
When you’re productive, you are able to spend more time outside of work, enjoying your time and less time worrying about the items left undone.

As a business owner, you’re being bombarded with many distractions that may hinder or block what you intend to accomplish on a specific day. The distractions may come from your personal life, or be work-related.
It’s hard to stay focused when you’re receiving:
- Instant Messages
- Social media pings
- Just to name a few!
