In this episode, we’re discussing productivity, our relationships with it and how we’re reframing our beliefs around it. If you feel like the way our society views productivity is messed up and needs to change, this is the episode for you! May it help you on your way to unhooking from the drive to constant productivity that’s drilled into us from an early age.

  • Our experiences of productivity and how society views being productive.
  • How much value is put on being busy.
  • Alternative markers of success, and asking “what are you allowing to count?”.

Ellen mentions that there is a Japanese term for death by overwork, this is Karoshi (過労死, Karōshi), which can be translated literally as “overwork death”, and more info can be found here.

Ellen talks about using Duolingo.
