I don’t agree with “better done than perfect.” Not that you have to be perfect 100% but if you have to re-do it, how is that productive?

Very good productivity map. Thank you. I agree with the above comment that "get meals delivered" is not a healthy option. Preparing ahead by cleaning veggies for some of the week or making home made soup and freezing some etc. would be a more productive and healthy option
I feel the visual map is effective and very helpful with many great ideas.

I thought this was really awesome, the only thing I noticed that contradicted- was "eat healthy" and "get meals delivered" unless you meant, get your groceries delivered, I don't think most take out meals equate with healthy. Instead I would suggest cook more meals at home, or bring your lunch to work (to save time and money), but I would also add to not eat while you work, and instead take a break from "being productive" to slowly enjoy your meal with lots of gusto and no distractions 😉
