More to life than productivity.

The title is not the greatest, but the article mostly talks about how the guy is living his life more fulfillingly, not a micro-optimization of productivity.

Yeah, I guess, but it seems like there's a conflation of the idea of getting stuff done and being fulfilled. Playing games online (or just sitting around and chatting with my wife, for that matter) doesn't really serve to help me get anything done but I derive enjoyment from it.

More to life than browsing reddit and getting on the rage-train with the latest injustice spreading through facebook like wildfire.

Well who says that's what I do online?

Fair. That's just where many of us are coming from, and I think what makes "cold-turkey" appealing.
