Productivity kills us #1

Productivity kills us #1

We became slaves of nowadays productivity cult. We continuously work and complete tasks, competing with ourselves and others.

Competing with ourselves

Competing with ourselves

We all know the statement - compete only with yourself. In this concept we do it the best.

If you did better than yesterday - great, you "raised" the level of productivity(nr of things done in an unit of time), now try to keep up with this level for a long time)

And if you didn't - you're a piece of crap, and you lose all your motivation to work(

Competing with others

Competing with others

As well we like to be 'stronger, smarter and overall better' than anyone else. That's our competitive nature.

Seeing someone more successful than you is a great factor that makes you to leave your comfort zone and start to work. But getting too much much exposed to this factor may leave you too unsatisfied with 'where you are', 'what you can' and 'what you can't'. This will kill your desire to to be the best.

Productivity kills us #2

Doing more and more of things isn't good. We can't keep up with the regime/schedule is very hard, and if something goes out of control - you'll feel burnt. You will not feel like working. This is the danger of productivity cult.

What to do?

What to do?

If you already feel burnt - then take a rest, let your organism to recover after a such energy-consuming trial.

Filter the tasks you were doing and find 2-3 things you adore or you're good at them.

Take your time to determine what skill level you got, and setting goals you want to achieve.

Now, start with small steps in achieving those goals, DON'T MAKE SPRINTS - 'cause you will burn(that's not what you want). Work in small blocks of time on all of them, EVERY DAY.

Consistency is the key to success.

I realised myself trapped in this productivity cult. I got burnt out because of schedules and frames I set to myself. Now I want to start a new program according to the last idea and maintain it as long as I can.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
