Productivity, the last resort

Just watched this video of Jason Fried: Why work doesn’t happen at work. It’s kind of an old one, but ironically, the problems challenged by Jason are there and happening on a daily basis.

I don’t have the option to work from home and be more productive, I need to get to the office and work from 9 to 6. I need to sort out my productive time within the office hours. My adaptability in this time frame resulted into a productive time slot starting 4 pm onwards. I prefer staying late and continue my job rather that struggling to focus and get work done by 6 pm.

Because, the irony of this situation is also stated by Jason in his talk: M&Ms (Managers&Meetings) are the 2 biggest factors that keep you away from your productivity .

What’s your productive spot ?

  1. Because I am *lucky* enough to live relatively close to the office, my sweet spot is either prior to 8am or after 5pm. I do have the luxury of working from home but because I prefer to collaborate rather than just work off of bug reports I would rather be in the office (plus I don’t miss out when the free bagels roll in).
