"The first step to being truly productive is to be honest with yourself — have an honest assessment of what you are realistically capable of doing."
This requires acknowledging that we have a limit on how much mental work we can accomplish in a day or week.
We are flooded with tons of information and requests, and we feel compelled to read and respond at all hours of the day and night.
These unhealthy habits limit more than we realize our ability to do more great work.
“We willingly accept the loss of concentration and focus, the division of our attention and the fragmentation of our thoughts, in return for the wealth of compelling or at least diverting information we receive."
There are limits to what your body is capable of doing. A productivity strategy will only work for you if you know how to make it work with your current habits, routines, mental strength.
Organize your day around your physical and mental energy. And do more of what works for you.
"Our society today focuses much on doing more and getting more done. The bitter truth is, you will never be able to do it all — do one thing well, not three things badly!"

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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!
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.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
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!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
