What does productivity mean to you? I feel crazy busy these days but not productive at all. And when I am not productive is when I start feeling annoyed with myself.
For me, making stuff is productive. Shooting photos is the input and showing them is the output. This feels like the machine of productivity that I am used to and want to be part of.
Getting rid of massive amounts of stuff feels productive. Clearing space for new ideas feels productive.
Running around town doing errands does not feel productive, but laundry does. Social media does not feel productive, but blogging does.
I don’t even know where I am going with this. I think prioritizing what is most important is what productivity is. In our case, photography.
Warren Buffet said something along the lines of, “Write down 20 of the most important goals and things you need to do and accomplish. Spend a lot of time on it. Then take the top 3, and throw the rest away.”
