Productivity, efficiency, and Peter Drucker

“Nothing is less productive than to make more efficient what should not be done at all.” — Peter Drucker

Just a quick post with a quote from Peter Drucker. Not necessarily directly related to psychology, though I did see the quote on “Rescue Time,” a productivity application. This app installs on your computer and tracks how much time you spend on different websites and programs and scores your productivity based on that. It really helps you see where your time goes. Given how much distractibility and lack of “time sense” affects adults with ADHD, it’s a worthwhile program to try.

It also has a “Get focused…” feature that will selectively block access to things you find distracting for a period of time. I have not tried this feature, but clients of mine have and have found it helpful. It’s free, though you have to pay for the “Get focused…” feature. I feel it’s a valuable tool even with just the features in the free version.
