We all do things that have more to do with ego than results. Maybe you serve on a committee because you like how it looks on your CV. Maybe you teach at a local college because you like the words “adjunct professor.” The things you do mostly for ego are mostly a waste of time.

“A lot of the productivity stuff you read is basic — delegate, batch, keep a to-do list, etc. Those are great ideas, and you should do them!”
