Knowing why we want to do things, Is almost as important as actually doing something. We often tackle things head on without even thinking of our "why." What is it about our lives that are making us feel that we aren't adequate as far as productivity goes? Our peers? Or our overall sense of accomplishments?
Being productive isn't always about doing more, it's about working smarter so you can achieve essential things in less time. The complication with this, Is that you have to know what direction you want to go. Otherwise, you'll be confused and not do as much as you could.
