Is Productivity All there is to Life?

Recently, I was reading an article on productivity in the online version of Inc. magazine.  Most interesting was one of the comments on the article which read, “Is productivity all there is to life?”

I am fascinated by productivity practices, ideas, and apps.  Not that I always use them well but I like the possibility of maximum performance with maximum efficiency.  Well, enough of that.

How to avoid the grief of “But, I didn’t know.”

When I first saw this graphic, my mind was flooded with ideas related to personal awareness.  It’s beyond human capacity to pay attention to everything.  And, in this day who really wants to pay attention to everything coming at us anyway?

But, personal awareness is another issue.  Are you content not to know . . .

  • Who you really are?
  • How you affect others?
  • Where you want to go in life?   Where you want to end up?
  • How your practices and habits can be affecting your relationships?  Your business?  Your well-being?
  • Your potential?
  • The difference you could make in the world?

Why don’t I have clarity of Mission/Purpose in life? Fear

Are you afraid to define your mission/purpose in life?   Some people really are.  They are afraid it will:

  • Be limiting.  The false belief behind this is “no definition = freedom.”
  • Reveal something they missed.    The false belief behind this is “Ignorance is bliss.”
  • Be too late to do anything about it.  The false belief behind this is “It’s too late.”
  • Be too much and they will face the pain of failure or feel they have already failed at it.  The false belief behind this is that “Achieving little is better than the failure in attempting something big.”
