I mentioned this tip in my book 25 Tips for Productivity and it is something that I had always found interesting, how we hold to things even when they don’t work for us. The reality is that regardless of the cost, if something doesn’t work you should get rid of it.
We all had got computers, tablets, phones and even more expensive things that simply didn’t work and had prove to be useless. It is because of the cost of the thing that we decide to keep it to see if there is any way that the thing will be useful.
The reality is that we waste an incredible amount of valuable time that we could use to do important things trying to make this thing work in our workflows simply to end up frustrated and sure that next time we should try to make it work.
Maintain an object that doesn’t work for you is a waste of time and without a doubt against personal productivity.
