Who wouldn’t want to raise their productivity? Honestly, we know quite a few entrepreneurs who still think Output per unit of input, is the most accurate measure of productivity.

One thing stands out in our minds: for better or worse, with our new and less predictable lives comes more responsibility. A personal responsibility. No government, no manager, no one will eventually make you decide what to do on a daily basis. You have to decide for yourself. Just as they won’t tell you how to vote (hopefully), you’re at it alone in your cubicle, trying to get the work done before your workday is over. Or, which is evermore the case in our increasingly flexible job market, before you get replaced by a seemingly better fit.

It’s a competitive world out there. You better take every advantage you can get, especially if it’s free to start.
