Creativity and productivity thrive under different conditions. What improves one, hinders the other. How then do you incorporate creative work into a productivity system like Getting Things Done (GTD)?
Are you focused? Have you learned to say no to all the things that don’t lead you to your goal? Have you found a way to stay focused and productive with all there is to distract you?
Do you think the end justifies the means? Or is it the other way around? Is it the means that justify the end? I’m of the latter opinion, but like everything else, it depends. It depends on your means of choice and what results await you. It depends on your goals for taking the journey and emerging at the other end.
