Know that productivity is not everything. With this statement, I’m sorry, Leo, I want to say that productivity is not everything, it’s the only thing. But if you can’t let yourself go, relax, do what you enjoy, and live a living part of your life–then you will really give up–for real. Recent research in books like Roy Baumeister and John Tierney’s “Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Power,” “The Willpower Instinct: How Self-Control Works, Why It Matters, and What You Can Do About It” by Kelly McGonigal and Daniel Kahneman’s “Thinking, Fast and Slow” suggest that we are not forever bound by our bad habits and that we can indeed change and increase our willpower. If you answered yes to any of the above questions, it’s time to create a plan to overcome your productivity addiction. You can’t avoid all temptations by working on increasing your willpower. I imagine, for example, that the consequences of addiction to work fall into another category: if someone dies of a heart attack at work, it’s not necessarily related to the addiction itself-it could be related to something like burnout, “he” adds. Sure, sometimes we need to produce, especially if we have bills to pay, but an obsession with productivity is unhealthy, Leo Babauta writes. We can increase our willpower by avoiding situations that require willpower and staying away from dangerous areas where temptation is strong and willpower is required. A person can demand recognition for “his” job or a pay raise, Chapman told the BBC.  The problem is that, as with all addictions, over time you need more and more things to satisfy, and it starts to work against you. I am proud to say: I am addicted to productivity – I want to be addicted to productivity – productivity is my life and my mission – and I also want to find a better way for others to be at their best with productivity. Pay attention to how much you drink when you’re making decisions, and try not to drink too much when you’re in a situation where you need to use your willpower. And when you’re working, when you’re excited, when you’re passionate and when you’re creating great things, that’s what motivation is, Leo says. Unfortunately, learning how to strengthen your willpower and get rid of bad habits is quite difficult, and we seem to fail more often than we succeed. The brain is our decision-making muscle, and its ability to give us the willpower to make good decisions depends on proper nutrition. We may not realize it, but this ubiquitous productivity tool can actually increase our stress and reduce our willpower. Research confirms that good habits help us when we learn to increase our willpower.
