Understanding what's compromising your productivity (part 2)

Wasn’t I just talking about the Yin of getting down playing into the Yang of lackluster productivity? Oh, why yes I was, in the previous post.

So what if you could improve productivity (using the previous post) even if you couldn’t improve your mood?

Oh my. I can see you getting more done already.

Trust me. If you’re in a thankless gig, trying to figure out how to cope. You can use all the help you can get. Even if you’re focusing on a way to improve your situation, the negativity is still going to creep into your addled brain.

Why not figure out how to work within the funk instead of against it?

You may feel lazy and guilty, but by taking this approach you will achieve much more than if you disregard your feelings and try and plow ahead on a day that just doesn’t seem to be working.

Read about this approach in How to Beat Down Day Blues.
