productivity backlash

Along with the avalanche of articles about productivity, there has been Stop lightan increase in articles that denounce the focus on productivity.

Are we becoming hyper-productive automatons, without the ability to enjoy life?

I don’t think so.

My focus on productivity has always been to teach people how to get things done so they can spend time doing the things they want to do.

When you are more productive/efficient/effective, you can spend less time at work and more time doing stuff you like.

When you spend less time doing mundane tasks, you have more time for meaningful work and for fun outside of work.

As I like to say: We don’t organize for the sake of organizing. We create systems to reduce stress and to allow you to enjoy yourself more.

Do you think the emphasis on productivity has created an oppressive outlook?
