Productivity isn’t busyness.  Time Management isn’t about doing more.

So how do you measure your productivity?

Measuring Productivity

I write about time management and productivity all the time, giving you the tips and tools to increase your productivity.  So how are you doing?  Do you know how productive you are?

Today I’m sharing a tool that will allow you to actually measure your productivity. This online quiz asks you a series of questions about productivity, and you answer according to your own habits and systems. At the end, you’ll get a productivity score — AND find out exactly what you need to do to improve.

Improving your productivity allows you to spend less time at the office, because you’re getting more done while you’re there.  It’s allows you to take back your life.  And now there’s finally a quiz that will show you the areas where you need to improve, and provide the help to get there.

Take the Quiz

New York Times best-selling author Michael Hyatt has developed this — and it’s free!

It provides you with the opportunity to answer a series of ten questions around key areas of productivity. The tool then calculates your answers and gives you an overall productivity score.

The whole process takes less than ten minutes. It will give you the clarity you need to walk the path toward greater effectiveness and success.

Once you discover your Productivity Score, you can quickly see opportunities for growth, as well as what you’re already doing well.

So go take the assessment now.  Then come back and let me know how you did.

Question: How did you score on the productivity quiz? Do you agree with the assessment? You can leave a comment by clicking here.
