Productivity is a frequent topic for discussion here. I came across and interesting presentation on productivity. This talk was presented at Ignite Charlotte 2 on February 8, 2011 at the Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte, NC. Flaviu Simihaian was speaker #13. Originally from Romania, now in Charlotte NC. Flaviu is obsessed with learning more about web development, design, open source, startups, and life.
Flaviu advocates eliminating to your To Do list in favor of scheduling your time on the calendar. He further recommends not checking email first thing in the day. Start your workday first.
Flaviu says hold on, it is more important to feel free than to feel productive. Life is for living not for living uptight. What do you really want? It is the small side projects that we are the most passionate about that we never get to that are the most important. Its those that will make you feel most accomplish, free, and productive. So do those now.
What do you think? Does he have a point?
