Productivity challenges?  I suspect that many of us have those, at least on occasion if not regularly.  Especially if we begin to feel overwhelmed.

We each have our own way of going about being productive…or not.  Some systems work, some don’t.  I actually like to review and revise my system once a year at least — sometimes more.  It all depends on how I feel about my level of effectiveness.
