Productivity Quiz – How Productive Are You?

We’ve developed a unique productivity quiz called LessBizy Mx4, and you can take it right now for FREE! Scroll down to start.

To increase productivity, firstly we need to understand where and why we’re being unproductive. Only then can we take clear action to overcome the inefficiencies.

The Mx4 quiz helps us determine specific areas and activities within the workplace productivity domain that we can improve upon.

What is the LessBizy Mx4 Productivity Quiz?

LessBizy Mx4 takes 36 statements (or questions), and groups them according to the appropriate productivity zone. All 4 zones begin with the letter “M”. They are:

  • Mindset
  • Meetings
  • Messaging
  • Managing the Day-to-Day

The quiz results are derived from our proprietary points and ranking system. For full details, please review the LessBizy Mx4 Power Score and Rank System.

Instructions and Guidance:

  • The productivity quiz follows a multiple choice format using a Likert scale.
  • You’ll need to select from 1 of 5 answers that best identify how you relate to each of the 36 statements shown.
  • Completing the quiz requires roughly 10 minutes.
  • Upon completion, click the “Calculate my Score” button at the bottom to generate your unique Productivity Power Score and Power Rank.
