Have you seen that commercial of the “productivity guy?”
He’s crushing it.
He’s emailing, texting, shuffling papers, taking phone calls, all at the same time.
It’s funny. But it’s NOT healthy.
Multi-tasking. Frantic effort. A relentless pursuit of the next task on full afterburner.
How long can you operate at that level?
Pro hockey players can for about a minute and a half. After that, they hit the bench to recover before taking back the ice.
Your work isn’t as physical, but you still need rest after focused effort.
Real productivity isn't "go go go." Real productivity requires balance.
Balance between exercise and relaxation, business and family, achievement and celebration.
Without balance, you’ll spend a few hours crushing it like the “productivity guy” only to burn out for the rest of the week.
