Overcoming extreme productivity addiction

  • Limit the amount of time spent on an individual task to 45 minutes. To create higher quality output, don't allow interruptions.
  • Create a 'not-to-do list' to avoid over-scheduling.
  • Take five minutes at least five times a day to stop completely. Go for a walk outside.
  • Make room for fun, laughter, and meaningful relationships. At the end of peoples' lives, they don't wish they worked longer hours. They wish they'd spent more time with family or traveled more.
