Quite by accident, very early this a.m., I discovered Zen Habits. And in this morning’s post, look what jumped out and spoke directly to me:
Forget about productivity and numbers. They matter not at all. If you are driven to do things to reach certain numbers (goals), you have probably lost sight of what’s important. If you are striving to be productive, you are filling your days with things just to be productive, which is a waste of a day. This day is a gift, and shouldn’t be crammed with every possible thing — spend time enjoying it and what you’re doing.
I’m thinking this is no coincidence given last night’s post: Never Been a Numbers Girl Anyway.
