Advice: Don’t Follow This Productivity Advice

Productivity Blogs

Reading all these blogs on productivity is really disturbing.

It makes me realise I really SUCK at life hacking.

I wonder how many people just read the stuff and think: "that's a great idea", and NEVER implement any of it!

I do.

 

Me at my most productive

If I would follow "The Disciples" (Tim Ferris, Tony Robbins, etc.), a typical productive day would look something like this:

It's really good advice, thanks. BUT SERIOUSLY? Who the hell lives like this?!

 Am I the only person in the whole world who doesn't write endless lists about what to do next?

(What if I just want to chill on the sofa, Al Bundy style...)

Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of doing all of the above. I really do.

But then there is life....reality... my three year old who wants to go cycling (who could refuse?), work, laziness, parties, hangovers.

Shit, it's midnight.

Better switch off the laptop and have a short night before the madness starts all over again. I really should read up on all this stuff.

If I have to pick one bit of advice is: don't do it all at once. It's too overwhelming. I like the Kaizen One percent per day thing, but I'll be really happy if I hit 1 % per month! Take it easy people. Be comfortable with lots of inefficiency and go for gradual improvement instead.

Change systems instead of chasing goals.
