The thing about productivity is that it’s like meditation; it’s nothing special and yet we insist on making it into something it’s not. We just do it and it’s done. When we have to sit, we sit. When we have to write, we write. When we have to go to the store, we go to the store. And then we do something else. When we see life as a series of activities weighed somewhat equally, every action is a lesson in presence and diligence. We don’t obsess or weigh preferences, and as a result we can give our full attention to everything.
