There's often a big difference between what you need to do and what you want to do.

Why I started writing daily todo lists?
As the years go by, I actively and consciously learn more and more about myself, specifically the way I work.

Sort of like people that are organised and productive … Continue reading Why I started writing daily todo lists?
Why you’re not as productive as you could be

Is now the time for productivity?
Instead of questioning whether or not you should be maximizing your productivity at this time, it might be more useful to check in with how you feel.
