Feel-Good Productivity

Ali Abdaal
Reading notes

Chapter 1: Play

  • “Play” with your work instead. The context of playing is important here
Pyschologists increasingly believe that play holds the key to true productivity, partly because it provides a sense of psychological relief.
  • What’s productivity anyways. The example of Feyman showed that ‘playfulness’ reignited his motivation in the core of the subject, which led to unexpected result when he first “played” with it. If productivity meant winning Nobel Prize, Feyman’s example is gold. Productivity means a consistent thrust to produce quality output, regardless of what the context of such output is.
