Harry C. Marks at Curious Rat brings the funny with his take on “productivity porn”:
By reading these blogs, you’ll be introduced to concepts like “inboxes” and “to-do lists” and “folders.” The people who write for these websites obviously know what they’re doing because instead of getting actual work done, they’ve written hundreds of thousands of words on how reading productivity blogs doesn’t count as getting work done. That’s what books call “reverse psychology.”
I agree with Harry, there is nothing I find more boring than techno-hipsters yammering about their gods damned “productivity” systems. Here’s a “lifehack” for you. Just do what needs doing you hipster fucks!
