Is the stay-at-home dad who spends most of his day changing diapers and cleaning up messes any less productive than his wife who is the CEO of a charity organization?
Sometimes I feel the most productive when I’m doing non-work errands. If you’re trying to break a cycle of non-productivity, don’t forget there are plenty of productive things you can do that may not be directly related to your occupation.
Doing simple household chores can be a great warm-up to addressing bigger challenges. If that’s what gives you motivation and confidence, don’t feel guilty.
