Sorry if this isn't directly related to EA. What is a good way to measure one's own productivity? I tend to measure the amount of time that I spend doing productive activities, but the discussion here seems to make a convincing case that measuring hours worked isn't the best method to do so.

My favorite starting points for thinking about productivity:
Thanks so much! I've been doing some stuff related to GTD, but haven't read the whole book -- will do so.
I can also highly recommend Deep Work by Cal Newport, his main thesis is that 'real' work only happens/productivity is high when you're doing it for a few hours at a time instead of 15min blocks with constant interruptions. Edit: should have read the linked post first haha, so see this as another vote for Cal Newport
