Productivity Is a Myth and I Can Prove It

So, a buddy of mine wants to know my “productivity secrets.”

Listen up: Productivity is a damn lie.

It’s not about doing more; it’s about doing LESS.

My one job?


That’s it.

Everything else—yeah, even replying to your emails—goes on my “stop list.”

Updating the website?

Stop list.

Basically, if it ain’t content, I’m not doing it.

Then I hire people to take care of those tasks.

But wait, there’s more.

I operate on the sacred rule of three.

Three tasks on my to-do list, not a single one more.


They go on my “idea board.”

When my to-do list is empty, and only then, I revisit those ideas.

Why clutter your brain when you can clutter a board, right?

What’s the one thing you can put on your stop list today to focus better?
