A lot of the advice I read on starting a blog said to narrow your topic as much as possible. That is good advice. But in one sense I’ve chosen to do the reverse.
I think we need to broaden the concept of productivity. Instead of thinking mainly in terms of making ourselves productive, we also need to think in terms of making our organizations and society more effective. This is really one of the ultimate goals, and most exciting things. The goal of personal productivity does not terminate on yourself, but is a means to being a useful person who makes the world a better place.
Hence, I define productivity as not only making yourself more effective, but making others more effective—our organizations, our communities, and our society.
