The Produtivity Ninja's Unorthodoxy

One of the most striking Productivity Ninja characteristics is using unorthodox practices to improve their productivity. What do we mean by this? Well, to name a few examples, having standing meetings, leaving the office without your smartphone for your lunchbreak and working somewhere new once in a while. Our blog post on how unorthodoxy could boost your productivity will explain it further.

This month, we want to encourage all of you to be more unorthodox with your approach to work by setting daily challenges that help you to explore how you work best even further.
