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.
