5 Productivity Myths Ruining Your Life
by Nir Eyal (5 min)
Productivity myths can hinder rather than help. Motivation is not driven by reward and punishment, but by the desire to relieve discomfort. Searching for the "best" productivity apps is a waste of time, diagnose the problem first. Multitasking can be effective as long as we don't need to concentrate too much on any one channel. The myth of readiness can hinder the pursuit of goals. A to-do list is not the only measurement of accomplishment, it's important to consider the journey toward long-term goals.
