Sometimes, when I show people another crazy side-project of mine, they ask me how I manage to be so productive. I never have a good answer to give them, because I don’t really consider myself very productive (unless you count my 2,000 hours of sucking at DotA2 as creative output), but they are invariably unsatisfied with that answer.
I saw another post about productivity on Hacker News today, and it made me finally express something I’ve been feeling for a while but had never managed (or taken the time to) put into words. It wasn’t so much the post itself (I didn’t read it), but the fact that I saw it, and that it exists. It made me realize my stance on productivity, and today I’ll share it with you, right in this article.
