My friend Michael Schechter is back in the saddle, writing on Better Mess:
So why am I here? Why am I back?
The truth? I feel I’ve reached a point where I’m only getting better now in the ways that come easy to me.
Well said. It’s a mature thing to go from just getting things done and being introspective about that to using those tools and methodologies to help you learn new things and be a better person. I think it’s worth getting into the productivity racket to learn about better ways to manage the things that can get out of control in work and life but it’s also worth getting beyond that and learning new things using the framework that you’ve developed—even if it takes some grit.
