What Is Productivity, Really?

A guide to the best personal productivity advice we could find

For most people, productivity can feel like a mystery, wrapped in an enigma, hidden in a paradox. The struggle to pinpoint exactly why we work the way we do, and how to improve our habits for the long run, is real. That’s the bad news. The good news, however, is that productivity is a learned skill, and not an innate gift that a person is either born with or without. Anyone who wants to can pick up and master ways to be more consistent and timely in accomplishing their goals.

Learning and understanding productivity has been a years-long commitment at Trello, and the result is a huge repository of blog posts, expert tips, frameworks, and apps that our team has compiled, tested, and benefited from as we work towards getting more done everyday. Here’s the even better news: We’ve finally put all this good stuff in one place.
