Great article on how to achieve high productivity.
Productive people aren’t braver than others; they just find the strength to keep moving forward. They realize fear is paralyzing while action creates confidence and self-assurance.
I subscribe to the school of thought that, in order to finish a project, you have to keep starting – to get over the fear of imperfection, you don’t focus on completion, but focus on beginning again and again.
Think about a time you put off a task, finally got started, and then, once into it, thought, “I don’t know why I kept putting this off–it’s going really well. And it didn’t turn out to be nearly as hard as I imagined.”
