Different compartments of your brain has their own specific things to perform apart from interacting with each other. This is divide and rule policy.
Active and enthusiastic people run the day. They tend to perform better in an organizational set up and often influence others. Many people find being active and enthusiatsic is just the matter of age or the log phase similar in a sigmoidal curve. I would rather not agree on that as compared to specific exmaples from history of sports, movies, science and arts. Apart from that business sector has also seen individuals with potential and activeness which defy the concept of age and youngness in the individual. Mind has some deep rooted concepts which we believe and governs our thinking. Let's take an exmaple, you have a meeting at 7 am in the morning. To reache the destination, you have to start at 5 am from home. But, this is not the usual time you wake up daily. You will notice, you make to the meeting just in time. You are sitting quietly during lunch time and just thinking about what you just did. Then you think you can make it a habit. This is called small steps for large well being in future. This is motivation as a whole and thoughts rush in if you have some passionate feeling about your work.
Let's break it little bit more. How often do you come across the word passion during studies, work or some other areas. One of the believe people have is, it is not about financial security. You just have passion. You can do it for nothing. That's again debatable. Nobody does anything for free. There are some exceptions to it though. In a setting where students, employees or the business world is interacting, the word 'Passion' signifies something else. Not the passion you have while you were in 5th Class or schools. Those times were to build your interest and keep you engage constantly. After sometime, as we understand little bit of how world runs with financial, social and other spheres of human civilization, we need to develop the passion to higher level for larger mass.
Being a school kid, you might remember that you were good at drawing, playing some instrument, or playing a sport really well. These kind of hobbies, passion are not with everybody now. While of you take approximation, more that 75-90 % of the students used to have some hobbies they would rely on that time. Soon, many gave up for some or the other reasons. Reasons beside, the question is why? It singles out or pints out to one and only one answer. Your believe based on your situation. At this point, your decision making capabilities play a lot of role. You may be good at many things. But you have to invest your 100% energy, to carry forward and do better in one of these activities. Not all. A saying goes 'Jack of all trades, Master of None.'
Ok, we break now the ice with real answers. Why do you need better productivity? Active and engage words you understood from above paras. Human civilization has travelled a far and is still travelling for healthier and better world. Be it sciene or arts, human civilization improved its way of understanding each other and rise to common good. The most inpsiring one is internet as you connect and read stories, see other people and get motivated for do better with what you have. To keep this running, your productivity is important. Not only, it will benefit you and direct related family members and friends. It indirectly shapes the future civilization. One or the other way, you matter. There is a certain amount of time you are given to do a task or you promptly take a task. Here, task refers to a job, work or a phase of life for more than a year. Being a student, you tend to drop excitement over the years. You lack interest gradually and develop another exciting feeling for another sphere of work. This happens more often now a day and goes so frequently, due to social media exposure and access to more information. It has both benfits and side effects. I don't have to explain this here. That itself is a topic on its own.
To do good for you own which can benefit others is Passion in other way. This might include financial incentive. So this is constantly evolving and people are understanding what works well for them. But to keep that consistent, you need to be active and engaged. That activity should be so special for you to keep you engaged. Here are some ways to keep yourself active throughout your days in a task or worklife or student career , which can give better results over time.
Of course, there are other ways you can add on and get inspired from your friends who are hard working. You ned to have some kind of fuel that keeps your engine on and working smoothly all the time. You will have to refresh yourself also. You are not a robot either. Even robots need some hiberbnation time to work. Smooth down on yourself while you are busy with daily schedule. Enjoy whatever you do. It is like your food and travel. It is the basis of human community and you too will be benefited.
Lastly, an empty mind is a place for evil ideas. So keep yourself engaged in some activity which can help others or you. One example, reading an article and story inspiring you can enhance your vocabulary and sentence phrasing skills. We all are constantly developing and can never be 100% perfect. So be natural in whatever work you do and remian focused to reach high standards in terms of quality. At the end, you will feel better. That is what is my intention.
