“Hope is nothing but waiting and letting life happen to you.”
Consumed => “Scott Hanselman’s Complete List of Productivity Tips” by Scott on his site / blog.
=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…
re: “Maybe what you really need is the will to do it and the recognition in your mind that there is a difference between being busy and doing the work that you want to do,”
Yup! Combined with the Rule of 3 and you’ve got a winner(s).
And on that note, I highly recommend “Your Brain at Work” by David Rock. If you want to under why your brain does what it does (or doesn’t do), then this book is essential. “Focus” by Dan Goleman is also good, but closer to Scott’s (dare I say) brute force techniques.
