This is why I avoid productivity, self-hep and life hacking listicles. I’m a person, and actually real, unique human being and these articles pile people into a heap of generalization.

Not to mention, I’m so happy for however because they wake up at 3 AM to do these ten things to increase and optimize their productivity throughout the entire day and, wow! How amazing they are.

And here I am, a simple person wondering why the fuck anyone needs to be so damn productive anyway. Where’s the race to, really? I’m just living life, day by day. I’m in no hurry to get to wherever I should be going, wherever that may be.
