Understanding what's compromising your productivity

Sometimes, disdain for your working environment can result in a gradually decreasing level of productivity that brings you closer and closer to a completely comatose state. And, this lack of progress tends to feed your dissatisfaction. Which makes you more upset, which results in less activity.

It’s a really nice death spiral. Or, if you want to sound all stuffy, an Ouroboros. Yeah, that’s right. I said Ouroboros.

When I start to feel that spiral setting in, I like to waste even more time by reading through guides to productivity. Searching for ways to eliminate my lack of productivity is a great way to waste a day when I should be doing something else.

You should not choose this option. Instead, you should let me do that for you.

So that you don’t waste your time and so that we can get you out of your little funk, why not visit productivity-savant David Seah? He’s got another great post. This one is on Productivity and Newton’s Laws of Motion.
