This re-post from Anna Winterstein at Lifehack gives a fresh perspective on a heavily discussed topic. I love her outlook about how to keep ALL the things in your life that you value while nixing those you don’t.
The productivity ideal seems to be: know exactly what’s coming next, and then become exactly that.
But I don’t think that reflects the way most people function. We have jobs. We have personal lives. We have hobbies, interests, mood swings, little illnesses, moments of motivation, moments of joy. All of those things constantly change.
We were simply the usual victims of a case of “Life happens”. Life does happen, all the time. My point is, we should embrace it.
