On productivity

 1. Decide you aren’t productive enough.

2. Create an unrealistic To Do list.

3. Convince yourself you must complete this list in order to feel productive.

4. Try and fail to complete this list.

5. Decide you aren’t productive enough.

6. Repeat until (a) sickness, (b) death, or (c) you develop realistic expectations.
