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 [EA · GW]seems to make a convincing case that measuring hours worked isn't the best method to do so.

This is a really deep topic, but certainly worth asking about; if you're working on an impactful plan, raising your productivity raises your impact.
My favorite starting points for thinking about productivity:
- Productivity: A summary of what we know [LW · GW] (LessWrong)
- The book "Getting Things Done" (which is referenced in the above post, but is quite powerful on its own -- the best book I've read about productivity, out of many)
- The Complice blog and app (a bit different from "standard" productivity systems, but as a self-contained system, it works well for many people I know)
