Pauses in life

Have you ever felt you were wasting time? Not a minute or hour, but days. Think about it for a second.

How to Get a Super-Productive Hour: 6 Steps

Productivity is something related to doing, doing more in less time. You are productive when you’re doing more, in quantity, not reducing quality, in less time (some would object on the quality part…). But what do your mind has to say?
