When you can’t figure out what to do, it’s time for a nap.

Mason Cooley
an American aphorist known for his witty aphorisms. One of these such aphorisms Cooley developed was “The time I kill is killing me.” He was professor emeritus of French, speech and world literature at the College of Staten Island.

Your attention is one of the rarest commodities you have; slowing down can actually help you accomplish more; the more intentions you set, the more you’ll get done; meditation can help you overcome huge mental hurdles; the world won’t stop when you step back from your work; and there’s more to your work than productivity.

Chris Bailey
from A Life of Productivity website

I wake up every day planning to be productive and then a voice in my head says, “Ha ha, good one!” and we laugh and take a nap.
