Growth happens outside of your control area

When people want to get better at something they make a mistake by seeking flow: It’s enjoyable, you feel like you have control. But the actual state in which you’re getting better is one of where you feel uncomfortable.

The Productivity Funnel

The funnel begins with the fundamental task of selection, where you determine which activities to commit to accomplish. Relevant ideas for this level can be found in books like First Things First, Essentialism, How to Do Nothing, One Thing, The Dip, and Year of Yes.

Once committed, these activities must then go through processing, organization, and storage.

 There are two goals for this funnel level:

  1. to avoid forgetting what you’re supposed to do,
  2. to make smart decisions about what to work on next.

Follow your passion is a bad advice.

I finished reading this book two months ago but I bought it in hard copy last week because it is very good book that doesn't run along with your prejudices and strictly presents the reality; of people who ended up making a grand career for themselves which was not based on simple and manipulative advice:-

Follow Your passion and money will follow you

"Follow your passions" is bad advice

Few people have a passion that neatly translates into a career, and following one's passions often leads to misguided career moves. Rather, your satisfaction at work has more to do with your experience with that work rather than the type of work.

To have intrinsic motivation at work, you need:

  1. Autonomy - feeling like you have control over your time
  2. Competence – the feeling that you’re good at your work
  3. Relatedness – connecting with other people in the process
