I can be quite productive on a deadline, but without one I flop around aimlessly looking for something to do, while my to-do list (sans deadlines) keeps growing. It’s as if it’s not interesting to me unless there’s a race to the finish. But don’t do, do as …. well, not I, but as someone who’s obviously cracked the conundrum for herself, says.
Do you want to know the honest reason why I study productivity?
