“If you don’t produce, you won’t thrive — no matter how skilled or talented you are.” wrote Cal Newport in his book Deep Work.

Although there is a lot of truth in Newport’s statement, it is also true that focus on productivity is the cause of the new disease of the twentieth century — burnout.

I have started looking at productivity in a different way. Here are some of my articles on productivity. Hope they help.
