Productivity – Blog No. 82

productivity_analysts_sjpg1330When are you most productive?  When you are doing something you like, or when a whip is at your back.  Both methods work.  For some, deadlines motivate.  The chase to the end, motivates.  For others, the push is in an obligation, a feeling of being responsible.  Why is it that some people feel the need to do something about the state of this planet and others will not be bothered?  It is time to kick these sleeping people out of their beds.  I am tired of hearing the old story that it is no one’s job to bring the humans along, kicking and screaming.  That it is no one’s job to force them to wake up and take stock of where they are so they can decide where they want to be.  Who made up that story?  The same people who sit on the sidelines and watch this world implode?  Too bad for the silent fence-sitters.  The story has changed.

You are productive when you are driven, inspired.  If you lack inspiration, what can you do?  You can search for new experiences.  If you are averse to new experiences you must ask yourself why.  What is this need to live a traditional life?  Why are there not more pioneers?  Life is a construct.  Construct a model that works.  Why are there inflexible missionaries striding around making noise about choices?  Just because another’s choice is not yours, you cannot condemn it.  Do not hide behind God and shout about what is not right in his eyes when you have no idea what he likes and what he doesn’t.  When last did he pass comment on the way humans behave?  Does he even care?  The problem is that people are still whispering the same Hail Mary the priests were prescribing last century.  It works no better now than it did then.

Be productive in your thinking.  There is no point dreaming up doom and gloom for yourself.  Take your thoughts and modify them to include new possibilities that will improve your life.  Know that a productive life is a life well-lived.  However you choose to live well, is up to you.

  1. I travel to Seattle to do promo for book, Raise the Flag, because I must do this or else who will. And I travel by bicycle 375 miles while camping outside on park benches and picnic tables doing photo for a photo journal and this is how I do promo for book, Raise the Flag because this is something I can do. Anyone can do this is true but I am who writes those stories in book Raise the Flag and I am who travels 375 miles in 10 days doing promo for book, Raise the Flag http://www.jamesmorebooks.com
