Just saw Steve Pavlina’s 33 Rules to Boost Your Productivity. These types of posts seem to be very popular on social bookmarking sites like Digg and Reddit.
Here’s one of my own: stop reading about how to be more productive. Get busy doing what you need to do.
That’s a little tongue-in-cheek, but this isn’t: 33 rules to boost productivity is a sick joke. Why? No-one can possibly implement more than maybe 2-3 at any given time.
So reading 33 and thinking each one makes a lot of sense (true) and would be very helpful (true) is actually going to lead to a sort of paradox-of-choice paralysis.
Which is the worst productivity tip of all.[tags] tips, productivity, steve pavlina, john koetsier [/tags]
