Productivity hacking is both an art and science. One of the things that make it complex is everyone’s uniqueness. What works for one person can be crippling for another. Thinking what works for you must work from everyone is the epitome of naiveté. Everyone has to figure out what works for them. I have shared some productivity hacks before; but I make it a habit to review what’s working every now and then. I thought I’d share a new productivity tool I’m enjoying.
I’ve missed writing. I mean writing for the sake of writing. Blogging and all that. One of the things I’ve wrestled recently is doing something ‘recreational’ for the sake of it. I’m not writing about this for the first time. I’ve vowed not to make this ‘mistake’ before. But, yes, you’ve guessed it, I’ve done a Britney Spears: Oops I did it again.
You are too tired when you are so tired you can’t rest. Rest is not only doing nothing but also doing something that replenishes. A recharge or boost is not necessary only when you’re tired. For all to do life well we need to be resting before we need to.
Could it be that we’ve sucked the life out our work because we don’t get leisure? This got me thinking not only about down time but how I approach my work.
