THE MORE DEVICES YOU GOT, THE LESS PRODUCTIVE YOU ARE.

Ironically enough, the MORE devices you got, the LESS productive you will become.

Minimum viable devices

Funny enough, we think:

If I just had that one device or thing, or more of them … I will become *MORE* productive.

However on the contrary it seems the opposite is true. The *MORE* devices you got, the *MORE* distractions you got.

For example, I think the laptop is the minimum viable device. You can literally do everything with it. I don’t actually think you *NEED* a smartphone (even in today’s world) — it is a luxury and convenience thing. But you *NEED* a laptop. You don’t need an iPad, an Apple Watch, bluetooth headphones, etc. Even for music I find that playing music off your laptop speakers as the minimum viable audio device.

Lesson

Simple lesson:

If you strive to become more productive in life, seek to SUBTRACT more devices from your life.
