We all have the same time, the poor or the rich, same 24 hours but what determines how successful we all become is the way we maximize our time. Productivity is how we efficiently use our time to maximize output. In his book, Smarter Faster Better: The Transformative Power of Real Productivity, Author Charles Duhigg writes:

“Productivity is about recognizing choices that other people often overlook. It’s about making certain decisions in certain ways. The way we choose to see our own lives; the stories we tell ourselves, and the goals we push ourselves to spell out in detail; the culture we establish among teammates; the ways we frame our choices and manage the information in our lives. Productive people and companies force themselves to make choices most other people are content to ignore. Productivity emerges when people push themselves to think differently.”
