✎ Here is some of Eric Thomas’ best advice to stay productive: “Don’t make a habit out of choosing what feels good over what’s actually good for you.” “Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be.” “The only way to get out of mediocrity is to keep shooting for excellence.” ✎ Productive Music Playlist — May 2017: Be more productive at work with this playlist that science says will help you.
