Highly productive individuals tend to lead blended lives. We want to be more productive in our “downtime” (a word that formerly referred to the time when machines were not functioning) and more efficient while we’re at work so that we can have more downtime.
I had a little aha moment when I read that bit about blended lives and high productivity individuals. In my life I find there is less and less of a sharp demarcation between work and none work. Technology makes it easy to shift from one to the other any time any place.
Some see this as an intrusion and a sign that our personal lives are becoming diminished.
I see it it as creating a more fulfilling whole life that blends both work and personal time.
