On distraction and productivity...........

....................................and a book review by Ben Carlson.

“Being busy is a form of laziness–lazy thinking and indiscriminate action. Being busy is most often used as a guise for avoiding the few critically important but uncomfortable actions.”
-Tim Ferriss

“Productivity, put simply, is the name we give our attempts to figure out the best uses of our energy, intellect, and time as we try to seize the most meaningful rewards with the least wasted effort.”
-Charles Duhigg

If you don't check in periodically with Carlson's blog, A Wealth of Common Sense, well, shame on you.  It is worth the effort.   The book he reviews above is Duhigg's  Smarter, Better, Faster: The Secrets of Being Productive in Life and Business.   The nice people from Amazon delivered my very own copy on Monday.  It is currently located about midway in the queue.  I'll advise when it reaches the top.
