Occasionally I’ll get some criticism that I’m too focused on productivity. People say that I need to lighten up, etc. The problem is that on this site we focus on productivity–not on what to do with the free time that being productive buys you. Here is a short video about enjoying the fruits of productivity–free time to do things with family. (If you want to more of the other side, you can checkout my personal blog.)

It’s great to strive for efficiency, but it is also important to make sure that being above average in what you accomplish buys your above average rewards.

“Productivity gives you the freedom to do the things that you enjoy.”
I work in an advertising agency and productivity is defined as a measure of output in terms of how many campaigns you can launch or how many layouts you can accomplish in a day or how much work you can juggle. But as a mom, I think that being productive is about accomplishing my tasks intelligently in the shortest possible time so that I can go home early and spend time with my son. It doesn’t matter if you’re the best in your field if you can’t spend time with the people you love. Productivity is about balance.
Productivity is not only about your production output at work. Productivity is about getting the most out of everything you are engaged in, and work is the least portion of it.
Just wanted to say “BRAVO!”
Superb alignment of LIFE priorities. :)
