Probably the biggest battle for productivity is fighting the barrage of psychologically manipulative social technologies that have been designed to make us feel we are not enough, have missed out and need to keep clicking. I have always struggled to harness the never-ending stream of thoughts and ideas that course through my brain. Social media bombards me with even more ideas, thoughts and feelings I could live without.
These both sound fantastic. Thanks for sharing them. I can wholly relate to the accountability element of sharing a space with someone else doing work. Especially for creative work. Working from home is fine when the work comes without the possibility for idleness, like customer service where incoming cases are a constant. You can’t become idle that way, but when it’s self driven and requires focus having someone else is huge. So thank you for sharing these. 😊
