Yes, productivity! One of those words people love to use on as many occasions as they can.

Literally productivity means; the efficient use of resources, labour, capital, land materials, energy, information, in the production of various goods and services. Higher productivity means accomplishing more with the same amount of resources or achieving higher output.

For me it means having inspiration and drive to go for it, to not be distracted by the rest of the world around you.

Therefore I decided to create this post, dedicated to the 50 Most Inspirational Productivity Quotes to get -and keep – you going strong!
