What is the Real Cost of Productivity?

Since I sold the farm two years ago, I’ve spent a lot of time just hanging out, doing what I want to do. Mostly this involves a lot of writing, reading and being outside.

I’m happier than I’ve ever been, but I don’t feel like I’ve been as productive as I was in the past.

But maybe that’s because I used to equate being productive with a lot of screaming, nail-biting, phone-slamming, computer staring, booze drinking and late nights at the office? Not particularly in that order.

I had more money then. But was that the result of being more productive? Was I really getting more things done then? Or just pushing myself towards an early death?

Today, I still bite my nails, and drink booze. But at least I can honestly say life is better than I ever thought possible, even without “real” productivity.
