You create your future by what you do today, not by what you do tomorrow.

I’m always looking at new ways to improve my productivity. The love affair began when I was a teenager and continues still.

Optimizing productivity is highly rewarding and extremely satisfying. Getting there requires tackling both sides of the coin: addressing your negatives and fine-tuning positives. Attempting one without the other significantly limits results.

If you’re looking to enhance your productivity, you’ll love this gem I recently found for my own collection. I especially liked this post because the author, Nathaniel Eliason, understands the importance of seeing both sides. And I liked that he wrote of the importance of managing what one reads as well.

Nathaniel’s post, You Are What You Read: Why Managing Your Inputs is a Crucial Part of Productivity, is full of excellent productivity tips you can incorporate into your own routines immediately.

If you are experiencing:

  • information overload,
  • decision paralysis,
  • decision fatigue,
  • willpower depletion,
  • worry and fear,
  • productivity drain, and
  • unhappiness

managing your inputs is necessary to removing the issues.

“Inputs” include:

  • news,
  • advertising,
  • blogs,
  • videos,
  • notifications,
  • books, and
  • other people.

Nathaniel has useful tips for improving all of the above. It’s really a terrific piece. You can (and should) read it here.

More next time. Until then, remember to LOVE YOUR WORK, whatever it may be.
