"You eat every day?"

"Oh, Yes! I eat 4 times a day."

"Wow, that must be really important to you."

Some days we eat fast, eat at the desk, skip one meal, but we still eat. We find time for important things.

I blog, vlog, learn, run and read because it's important to me.

The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.”,  Stephen Covey.

I watch TV, play video games, hang out with friends, go out with family. It’s great and absolutely required to recharge.

But at times, I do too much of it. I play 10 hours of video games, and I feel bad about it. Then it’s about asking myself, “Do I really need 10 hours to recharge? Or can I read, learn or blog for 2 hours and play 8 hours”

Being productive is about being intentional. Being deliberate about what you are doing.

It's easy to stay busy and not have much done. Busyness is when you have many things to do, and you are not intentional about them.

Over the last 30 days, I wrote about productivity, systems, mindsets, hacks, tools, and ways of working that help me be intentional, stay focused, and keep myself in check.

Be intentional. Be Productive.
