How Change Produces Greater Productivity

 Change in general is a force that promotes growth and productivity. Change is always happening, causing us to be aware of the present moment. It causes an individual or group to strive for something better than what they have now, which prompts them to work harder towards their goals.

The human race has evolved over time, transitioning from primitive hunter-gatherers living in caves to people that live under constant surveillance and technology. There are many factors contributing to this change of society, one being the invention of fire which allowed humans to cook food instead of eating it raw. The act of cooking changes the structure of meat molecules, making them more accessible for humans but less edible by other animals. It also helps us digest food easier.

Another example would be the invention of the computer, which allows humans to store information on a device that can be used much more quickly and easily than reading through books. It also makes it easy to connect people with similar interests. With social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and many others we are able to stay in touch with friends through these platforms.

The internet is also a source of change. It allows for communication between people all over the world, allowing us to connect with one another and spread information at an unprecedented rate.

Naturally, change is not always necessarily productive. It can be destructive to both humans and animals. There are many examples of how climate change has destroyed the environment around us, reducing biodiversity and causing extinction.

Change is also destructive to humans. The invention of the atomic bomb, for example, was a positive change in technology, but it has caused great destruction and death. It is estimated that over 60 million people died from nuclear radiation as a direct result.


There is an advantage to being the most productive. It has a few benefits, such as not having to work much compared to others and it also allows one access to certain things that are denied other people. This productivity can be taken in many forms, like making money or building items of value. Most often this involves various kinds of labor.

People sometimes view productivity as a sort of contest, where they try to one up each other through their own actions. But in the end, it is just a way for people to set themselves apart from others.

This sort of competition has been going on for a long time, and it is one of the main drivers in human behavior. The reason being that people don't want to be out-done by others.

But, there is a flip side to this. Those who are more productive than others tend to have benefits that those who are less productive lack. In order to fix society and make it fair for everyone, we must take away people's advantages based on their productivity.

The best way to do this is by making everyone equally productive. If no one stands out, then there can be no advantages or disadvantages to productivity.


The first point is that change can be good or bad. Change for it's own sake is useless, but the idea that change has to be viewed as a negative thing is a human-centric view and stems largely from religious ideology.

The second point is that not all change is good. Some can be destructive and lead to a breakdown of the order within society, which is an important factor in productivity as it keeps everything else functioning.

The third point is that the idea of change can be viewed as a positive thing, and it's not necessarily true that all change is destructive or negative. In fact the opposite could also be true.

The fourth point is that it would be useful to examine the idea of productivity. What exactly does it mean? Is all change productive?

The fifth point is that change can be destructive in one area, but it could also produce a positive effect somewhere else. In this case the net result of the change would be productive.

The sixth point is that not all change can be predicted. Some things are completely unexpected and may even seem to have a negative effect at first, but later on it could turn out to be beneficial.


In general, I would say that any change is a form of productivity. Of course not all changes are beneficial, and some can be harmful or neutral but overall the volume of change in the world increases because people have more ideas than they did before.

The definition of change is interesting. The general idea that I have heard is that a certain change has occurred when we replace something with another thing which differs from it. This seems like a useful starting point for thinking about what changes are.

I think that anything could be a form of change, even if it is not necessarily seen as one. For example, when a person dies they are replaced by someone else who will continue their life.

Although often this replacement is not seen as a form of change, it seems to me that because the person who has just died differs from the new one then a definite change has occurred. It may be an unwelcome one, but still it would seem like an example of how changes are relevant.

It is also possible to see changes which happen in an instant as being relevant examples of how change can affect the world. For example, if a person wins a competition then that would seem like an instance of change.


In order to maximize our productivity, we must first understand what exactly it is that we are trying to produce. What do you have in mind when you say 'productivity'?

The first thing that comes to my mind is time management. People don't like wasting their time, and so they want things to be produced for them as quickly as possible. In order to make the maximum number of people happy (or at least less unhappy), we need a system where all products are available in the shortest amount of time.

What is a product? A 'product' (in the economic sense) is something which someone can purchase, and receive some benefit from. The purpose of any business or organization is to produce products for people.

We can think of a product as having two parts: the time required to create the product, and the benefit received by its user. Let's call these components "cost" and "benefit". It seems that we are trying to maximize both cost and benefit.

The cost of a product is two-fold: the time required to create it, and any other costs associated with its production. The benefit of a product is also two-fold: the value received by using it (however this may be defined), and an increase in your personal productivity.

So, the most productive society is one where products are created which maximize both cost and benefit. This seems to make sense intuitively, but is there any way to mathematically define it?


Human society is a well-oiled machine, but it's efficiency has decreased in the past few years. The decrease is not too obvious at first, and one might even think that productivity has increased. Why? Well let's look deeper:

The reason for the decrease in productivity is not entirely clear, but it has been noticed that wages have decreased whereas working hours are increasing. Why? Well, as technology and efficiency increases, there is less need to pay workers a high wage because businesses can make more profit with cheaper labour and machines.

So what is the problem? I'll tell you. The problem is greed, and short sightedness. People don't care about their fellow workers; they only care about profit margin for themselves.

Some might say that the employment rate has increased, and thus everyone is working more. But this isn't quite true. It's actually just a shift in who works for whom.

If you look at the employment rate of a hundred years ago and compare with the current employment rate, then no one is working more. The distribution of work has just changed. Back in the day people were employed by businesses directly to work for them; nowadays they are hired by businesses as contractors, who do not get paid much and have to provide their own workplace tools.

What is the solution? There are many possibilites, but I'll just tell you what I think would be a good idea: paying people more.
