The intention which you desire comes from the perception that you adhere.
Are trivial tasks a waste of time?
Here is something that I ponder myself sometimes when I do things I normally don’t enjoy because I feel like it is wasting time when I could be doing other tasks that are more productive.
Okay, so we need to break down what productivity means, and what is wasting time.
Productivity according to the google dictionary is measured in terms of the rate of output per unit of input. So what is suggested is that whatever you put in, the outcome you get as a result determines how productive you actually are.
Let’s say you spend 8 hours a day at work, well that in turn will produce 8 hours of wages. Now let’s say you work overtime and you get paid time and a half, which in most provinces it is a legal requirement. You now work 2 hours and get paid for 3 hours.
The time you worked overtime is now more productive since the output is greater than it would be generally.
Now that we understand the term productivity lets turn our attention to time being wasted.
What does this mean? What does this look like? Is it possible?
I asked the last question because this is where the message lies.
