Post By RelatedRelated Post

“A life spent dutifully responding to emails is a dull one indeed. And “wasted” time is, in fact, highly fulfilling and necessary.”

Your inbox is always full. And for the hard-charging productivity-obsessed careerist out there, nothing is more important than getting the most out of your day. There is no shortage of tools, old and new, to help you maximize your output. As Merlin Mann, creator of Inbox Zero has found it doesn’t yield the results we have been promised. It is counterproductive and Psychologist Michael Guttridge affirms that there are mental and physical benefits to spending downtime to let your mind wander. The reality is that work will always expand to fill the time you have given it. So schedule the time to step away from your desk and let your mind wander and declutter itself. You will be more productive at the end of the day.
