Every article about productivity is either crappy or excellent. If it’s excellent, I read it all the way through in order to absorb every detail about how I can get more things done—in doing so, I get nothing done. If, however, the article sucks, then I quit reading it immediately and go work on something I care about.
For me, then, good articles about productivity are usually counter to my productivity, and crappy articles are helpful. I’m so disgusted with them that I can’t help but want to work on something to counteract the time I lost by starting to read them.
Therefore, bloggers, please write more crappy productivity articles, so I can get shit done.
