Earlier this summer, the compulsively readable Productivity501 site interviewed the owners of other top personal productivity blogs. I was particularly interested in the question: “What change has made the most difference in making you effective?” I highly recommend checking it out.
What amazed me was the diversity of answers. Everything from the arcana of GTD processing tips to the birth of a child. I think this emphasizes the fruitful ambiguity of the term “effective.”
For me, when I think of this word, I think of my churn rate: the speed with which I am completing important projects. For other people, this might be completely different.
What’s your definition of effective?
