About Productivity Theory


Productivity Theory is dedicated to helping you accomplish your definition of success. Not everyone wants the same things out of life but, whatever you want, chances are you can get it by being a more motivated and productive you.

About Me


My name is Kayla Matthews, and I’d like to think I’m a pretty productive person.

I started Productivity Theory because my theory on productivity is, the more productive you can be, the better you can be.

I’m a freelance writer, blogger and content researcher and, because I want to churn out tons of articles and blog posts every week, I have to manage my time as efficiently as possible. (I even wrote a post for The Next Web about how I write as much as I do each month.)

I use lots of Google Sheets, Chrome extensions, calendar reminders, tons of apps and lots and lots of personally cultivated habits to stay on top of everything I want to do in a day.

Because so many people around the web seem to be seeking productivity advice and tips about how they can get more done in a day, I figured I could put my natural inclination toward productivity to use.

Hopefully, the posts you find here will give you new insights into how you can be more efficient and get more out of your life.

But I don’t just want to give you insights; I want to help inspire you.

You’ll notice that a lot of my posts on productivity and efficiency also overlap with general wellness and happiness discussions. I believe that you need to be passionate and happy in order to be highly productive (who wants to be productive when they hate what they’re working on?!) so I often overlap these viewpoints and tips.

In addition to reading my thoughts and tips here, you can also find me on MakeUseOf (where I’m a senior writer), Tiny Buddha, TechnoBuffalo, The Next Web, Pick the Brain and Lifehacker.

And, by the way, I love hearing from readers!
