Mind vs. Brain Part II:

Priorities, Pursuits & Productivity
"Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished." ~ Lau tzu

Why do we always seem to be in a hurry? Where are we going that requires such eagerness to act in such a way? Why do we sacrifice our highest priorities for the least likely means of finding true happiness? If we want to become more productive, then what is it that we are trying to produce?

"If the human brain were so simple that we could understand it, we would be so simple that we couldn't." ~ Emerson M. Pugh

"Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony." ~ Mahatma Gandhi
To arrive at your own definition of productivity, you should ask yourself what it is that you want to produce and transform the definition into action. Do you want to produce more time with your family? Do you want to produce greater physical, mental and spiritual health? Do you want to create true happiness or well-being? Once you arrive at this definition, you must align your priorities, pursuits and productivity accordingly.
Then you must form habits that maintain that alignment...
We will address those habits and some corresponding actions in our next installment of Mind vs. Brain posts, so stay tuned...
What do you think? Can you share your own story of aligning priorities, pursuits and productivity?
