Some Things Never Change

Consumed => “If You Want to Change, Don’t Read This” by Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic on HBR.

http://blogs.hbr.org/2013/12/if-you-want-to-change-dont-read-this

=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…

I’d like to suggest anyone who is interest in this topic (i.e., change) – which includes being more productive – should read “Your Brain at Work: Strategies for Overcoming Distraction, Regaining Focus, and Working Smarter All Day Long” by David Rock.

In short Rock’s lesson is simple: if you understand how and why the brain does what it does then you can be proactive with your own thoughts and actions. Basically, it’s how to think about thinking. And how to stop the usual defaults and replace them with something less primitive and more appropriate (to being productive).

While Rock’s scope is different (i.e., productivity) there are, best I can, quite a few common themes between his book and this article. Even if you find it to be otherwise Rock’s book is still a highly recommended read. IMHO, of course :)
