productivity and concentration

9d96e-swingI think there’s some misunderstanding about productivity. I’ve read several articles lately disparaging the “cult” of productivity and how there’s more to life than work.

That’s the point.

Being productive allows you to spend your time doing the things you enjoy. It’s not about spending more time at work.

I’ve seen a few articles suggesting that you build in break time to give your brain a rest between tasks. Here are two articles about increasing productivity without working nonstop:

In the NY Times, Phyllis Korkki says taking breaks  from mental tasks improves both productivity and creativity, while Susan Adams at Forbes advocates goofing off to improve productivity.

Do you take regular breaks at work or do you try to cram as much work as you can into the day?
