I posted about productivity a few days ago, and then came across this article, "Habits Can Make You Stupid, And Then Kill You."
Its another one by James Altucher. I know I know. I been reading him a lot lately. He's smart, and different, and interesting. But I read other stuff as well. Just have been reposting the stuff I think is pretty interesting.
The idea is that there is such thing as over-productivity, and too many rituals and habits. Hard work is great, but spinning your wheels for the sake of action is not efficient or smart. I guess, like everything else, there is no answer. The key is being happy and making sure we aren't doing it at the expense of future happiness either.
