3 Simple Ways To Have Healthy Productivity
Lee Nicholson
1936

Great points. I’ve definitely fall into the trap of spending more time learning how to be productive than actually getting things done. But I have to add that productivity itself (that is, the actual completion of tasks) can also be an addiction. I got to the point where my life revolved around my to-do list and I would judge my self-worth on how much I accomplished. If I didn’t complete enough tasks on a particular day, I would beat myself up and experience lots of guilt. Eventually, I had to ask myself, What is all this productivity for? What’s the higher purpose? Ironically, asking that question actually made me more productive — and happier. But it’s still something I’m working on.
