Feel-Good Productivity by Ali Abdaal

How strongly I recommend this book: 4 / 10

Date read: December 27, 2023


Ali’s entire premise is based on feeling good about doing the work. Instead of hard-core disciplined approach, try finding ways to make the work more fun. He lays out a lot of research around how we do our best work when we’re less stressed. However, I’m not sure how much I agree with this premise. I’ve come across research that calls out that dopamine stacking can cause less and less enjoyment with the task at hand. I’ll get back to this topic when I’ve done more reading in this area.
