Everybody wants to be productive: to get things accomplished both professionally and personally. And there are lots of ideas on the best way to accomplish that goal, but the secret to productivity is different than most people think.
No matter who you are, what you are trying to do or why it is important, the secret to productivity is always the same; that is the beauty of its simplicity.

The secret is simple: know thyself! But for some folks, this task is much harder than it sounds.
