This is not about productivity so much as it is about mindful and intentional living.
Quoting Austin Kleon:
“What do you want your days to look like?” is a question I ask myself whenever I’m trying to make a decision about what to do next. In fact, I believe that most questions about what to do with one’s life can be replaced by this question.
This is another way of getting at purpose and meaningfulness. When you start from there, a lot of decisions get easier.
