Business Productivity Facts

How productive are you? When is your most productive day of the week and when is your least productive day? The answers might surprise you and you should compare your results to these:

  • It’s been shown that Tuesday is the most productive day of the week; Friday is the least.
  • The most productive time of the day is 10:26 am and the lest productive is 2:55 pm.

Do you agree with these? While it might be difficult to pinpoint the exact moment when you’re the most, or the least, productive, we’re certain you’ve heard of the “three o’clock slump” so we think that’s where the 2:55 pm comes from.

What does all this mean to the business owner? It means you should take time to determine when you, personally, are most and least productive and then arrange your work tasks around those times. Tackle the hardest tasks when you’re most productive aka attentive and menial tasks during your own slump-time.

Do you know your personal productivity times?
