Recently I talked about value – and the fact that it is not a straightforward phenomenon.  What I didn’t mention in that piece was the topic of what you value … personally.

Presumably if you are reading this, one if the things you do value is productivity – for yourself or your organisation  … or both. You strive to be productive and to create a productive organisation.

Well, take an hour today .. and be unproductive. Do something frivolous … just for the fun of it. It’s good to turn off occasionally.

Ironically, of course, it will make you more productive – by recharging your batteries and resetting your mind.

So, turn off for an hour. I give you permission.
