Try a system-driven approach to staying productive.

Elon Musk

So, whether working from home or in the office, how can we ensure continued productivity?

A System-driven approach to productivity

If you do something every day, it’s a system. If you’re waiting to achieve it someday in the future, it’s a goal. — Scott Adams

1. Find your high-value task

“Focus on signal over noise. Don’t waste time on stuff that doesn’t actually make things better.” — Elon Musk

If you want to go high on the ladder of achievement you have to consistently produce high-value results.

“The amateur tweets. The pro works.” — Steven Pressfield

2. Time-block your days
