In the interest of extreme productivity, I’ve decided to perform an experiment for the next week (starting today and ending a week from today). I’ve come to the conclusion that there is far too much noise in my life – I don’t mean this literally of course, but there are far too many distractions.
There are so many things going on, too many blogs to read, too many e-mails to respond to, etc. I’m not overwhelmed emotionally, because none of it directly impacts my immediate well-being. I still go to my 9 to 5 job every day, do a good job, and get my paycheck every two weeks, so it’s not like I’m in any sort of immediate danger.
Every day that goes by where I’m unproductive outside of work, however, probably has a larger impact on my future. I’m a believer that hard work today will pay off in multiples at some point in the future, so each day’s lack of productivity is probably more detrimental than it seems.
