Power-Expression, Not ‘Productivity’

A realization and re-interpretation or re-articulation on the concept of ‘productivity’:

It isn’t actually ‘productivity’ we want, but power-expression.

I realized this becoming a parent. You suddenly have 100 fewer hours in a day to do your ‘productive’ things. And certainly once you become a parent, your productivity will go down at least 500%.

But then– is it really ‘productivity’ we want? I say no. The biggest pain being a new parent is dealing with the loss of physiological energy (thank god for sleep training). And then what brings us joy? Not being ‘productive’, but having great physiological strength and power we can express to the world via our words, thoughts, photos, art-work, or ideas!
