Author and productivity expert, James Clear, runs through a list of ideas many of us believe but which are really just myths. We overrate some ideas and underrate others:
Overrated: Unrestricted freedom.
Underrated: Carefully designed constraints.
Overrated: Being busy.
Underrated: Doing one thing at a time.
And a personal favorite of mine:
Overrated: Watching the news.
Underrated: Reading old books.
