And, here is the download link to The Paradox of Productivity Podcast.
After not having a great start with my routine today, I was reminded that yea, it’s important to set really big goals, but at the same time – to go easy on yourself.
We need to work on accepting, appreciating, and valuing who we are – rather than always thinking “oh, I’m so lazy”, “I never get shit done”, “I’m such an unproductive person”, etc.
It’s about meshing the practical nitty-gritty HUSTLE with the buddha-like acceptance of ourselves and “practicing” detaching from the outcome.
Don’t get too high when you’re up and don’t get too low when you’re down.
Ride the ebb and flow, hustlin’ & being lazy, striving for big goals, yet being easy on ourselves.
These are the great paradoxes of productivity.
