It’s important to feel productive and useful. However, many erroneously associate “productive” with “busy.” The image of an office worker who can simultaneously handle a phone call, fire off an email and staple the new cover to his TPS Report is enviable. “Multi-tasking” is a buzzword which suggests a peak state. We should all be so busy, so motivated, so … productive.

Each Sunday morning I sit at my desk with my notebook and pencil. Rdio plays my Weekly Review Playlist while a cup of hot tea silently lets off steam. My computer is off. Nothing is printing, beeping or chirping. It’s my favorite part of the work week, and I’m sharing it with you here, including a Rdio playlist of my weekly review music. Enjoy!
