How to release productivity guilt and embrace the hidden values in our daily lives.Any given day brings a never-ending list of things to do. There&’s the work thing, the catch-up thing, the laundry thing, the creative thing, the exercise thing,… the family thing, the thing we don&’t want to do, and the thing we&’ve been putting off, despite it being the most important thing. Even on days when we get a lot done, the thing left undone can leave us feeling guilty, anxious, or disappointed. After five years of searching for the secret to productivity, Madeleine Dore discovered there isn&’t one. Instead, we&’re being set up to fail. I Didn&’t Do the Thing Today is the inspiring call to take productivity off its pedestal—by dismantling our comparison to others, aspirational routines, and the unrealistic notions of what can be done in a day, we can finally embrace the joyful messiness and unpredictability of life.For anyone who has ever felt the pressure to do more, be more, achieve more, this antidote to our doing-obsession is the permission slip we all need to find our own way.
