To improve our productivity, we must take extreme measures in doing so.
It’s not enough that we try, we should DO IT and be tight about it. Tolerate things that would increase your productivity. If there are people and activities that are preventing you from being productive, stop them and defend your productivity.
Another thing to remember is being able to do things simultaneously, not sequentially. Normally, when we do things sequentially, we rarely get things done—and that is a problem. However, when we do things simultaneously and treating these with urgency, there is a better chance that we get things done well.
