Am I productive? Pondering this question, gives me a moment of pause. The word productive means – ” having the quality or power of producing esp. in abundance – : effective in bringing about.”(Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary and Thesaurus)
Each person can interpret that definition for themselves. As I go through my day, I try to determine if there is a positive difference that occurs by the actions that I perform. That is the standard for me when judging my productivity.
Interacting with nature, humans and the environment gives each of us numerous opportunities make a conscious decision to be productive each day. Do we ask ourselves how we use our resources or our interactions? Are the objects that we encounter every day seen as opportunities to make something better?
Next time you have the opportunity to be productive, maybe it is also an opportunity to make things better.
Just a thought…
