“Also, don’t fall into the trap of productivity porn—chasing productivity for its own sake isn’t helpful. Many people spend too much time thinking about how to perfectly optimize their system, and not nearly enough asking if they’re working on the right problems. It doesn’t matter what system you use or if you squeeze out every second if you’re working on the wrong thing.”

It doesn’t matter how fast you move if it’s in a worthless direction.  Picking the right thing to work on is the most important element of productivity and usually almost ignored.  So think about it more!  Independent thought is hard but it’s something you can get better at with practice.

Sam Altman talks about how to get productive and how to stay productive, at least the patterns that have worked for him.

* pick things you already want to do
* use lists for short & long term tasks
* ...more!

Sleep seems to be the most important physical factor in productivity for me.  Some sort of sleep tracker to figure out how to sleep best is helpful—I’ve found the only thing I’m consistent with are in the set-it-and-forget-it category, and I really like the Emfit QS+Active.

The right goal is to allocate your year optimally, not your day.

Compound growth gets discussed as a financial concept, but it works in careers as well, and it is magic. A small productivity gain, compounded over 50 years, is worth a lot. So it’s worth figuring out how to optimize productivity. If you get 10% more done and 1% better every day compared to someone else, the compounded differen...

Sam Altman goes straight to the point. This is the best ratio of good advice/words on productivity I've seen in my life.

I love the direct, to the point, writing in this. I also like that Altman's advice is very pragmatic and not just on doing stuff, but also looking at sleep and nutrition.

Favorite tweet:

"Finally, to repeat one more time: productivity in the wrong direction isn’t worth anything at all. Think more about what to work on."https://t.co/5FCjL9PkA0
