Mike Schechter and Mike Vardy, had Thanh Pham and I on their show to discuss the awesomeness of productivity.
Have a listen to the Mikes on Mics podcast #62 here.
In all seriousness, we discuss the concern of how an over-focus on productivity can ironically turn into an avoidance of doing the work itself. The issue is actually quite a large one as it is a major means of procrastination. For this reason, perhaps among others, the productivity space can get a bad rap.
But the focus, as always, is on mastery and meaningful work. The rest are just tools.
