One way to think about the economy of a country is to think about the economy as the collective productivity of the people. One can argue that the economy is more complicated than that. However, it is useful to approach economic matters as a productivity problem. If you could increase the productivity of the people in your world, economic prosperity will take care of itself. You must focus on how you, and the people around you can increase the scale at which value is created. We need to understand that the prosperity of the nations is generated by the productivity of the individuals.
Economic prosperity will not happen due to external help, the people have to decide they want to become more productive. Economic conditions do not improve until one begins to understand the role of productive labour in the scheme of things. You cannot claim to be a millionaire because someone gave you ten million dollars. A millionaire (in USD) is someone that has created value worth at least a million US dollars. The Bible teaches us that God expects us to be productive. The first instruction God gives to mankind, is to be fruitful. Fruitfulness is bible-speak for productivity.
Take a look around you and determine ways by which you can increase your productivity. Think about how you can increase the productivity of your family members, staff and everybody that lives in your world. You must understand that your watch is incomplete without a concern for their economic affairs. People must be reminded that their prosperity is tied to their productivity. And that they must pick up the slack. Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google parent company Alphabet, once admonished his staff, saying, “there are real concerns that our productivity as a whole is not where it needs to be for the headcount we have”. Every member of a community, organization or corporate entity must be made to understand their own role towards contributing to the economic betterment of their world.
