Don’t sacrifice personal development at the hands of productivity.

I spend a lot of my time figuring out how to hack my work day to get things done faster and be better at efficiency and effectiveness.

That means honing in on tasks and drilling them out. Sometimes it means being brutal and cutting out anything which is not necessary. It means reducing procrastination and focusing on exploiting your known talents.

The thing is though, finding new talents is not usually very productive, it is messy and sometimes hard and often time’s means failing a bit before you really start to get good. What I am saying here is that personal development is not productive in the short term, sometimes not even in the long term.

Something to keep in mind before riding off into the sunset chasing productivity.
