I think I thought I was wiser than my years.
Humans can not be "productive". We should never measure or remark upon our own "productivity".
Systems can be productive. For example, an economic system can be productive or unproductive. A factory can be the same. A workflow can be productive. A piece software can be.
We shouldn't measure ourselves by what value we produce.
Especially when most of the value of the work we do under capitalism is extracted from us by bosses and landlords.
The lens of productivity is a inherently hierarchical way of viewing ourselves.
The obsession with productivity just pure neo-liberal economic capitalism seeping into our social relations kind of shite.
We are not systems to be "optimised". We are people. Living, breathing, caring, loving people. Fuck your productivity.
