We all know people like this. I’m one of them and if you’re reading this I’ll bet you’re one too. One of those people who thinks they have their system working well but are convinced there’s a way, a tool, or a technique out there you haven’t found yet that will make you just a bit more productive. We tinker. We tune. We try to go from 90% to 91%. Why can’t we just leave well enough alone and get things accomplished?
Based on the years I’ve been working in the productivity space I’ve noticed a few common threads among people who tinker with their productivity systems: FOBO, change, inspiration, and frustration.
