Of Quantity and Of Quality: Introducing the Productivity Blog
The battle between ‘Quantity’ and ‘Quality’ has remained a never-ending one. Would I rather have two heavy plates of rice with no meat or fish (animal protein) in it or would I rather have one regular plate of rice with one piece of meat or fish? I might have a full belly with the first choice but I might also feel much better eating the food with a piece of meat or fish in it even if it is a smaller quantity of food. People fall across either side of this divide depending on a number of factors which could among other things include their environment, upbringing, training, personal choices and general experience. This begs the big question: Would you rather enjoy ‘quality’ or ‘quantity’?
Productivity is denominated usually by the quality of work done and not the quantity, hence I might spend ten hours on a task and achieve less than my colleague who spent two hours on the same task. It is simply a question of the value (quality) of work and not the time spent (quantity) on the task. Productivity remains a major issue in today’s workplace and an increasing number of people all over the world find themselves lacking in this area. When work becomes a routine and hardly fulfilling, it cannot be said to be productive.
