Stop being too obsessed with productivity.
别再过于迷信产出率了。

The productivity of a worker is rather important.
一个职场人的产出率是挺重要的。

The amount of work you do says something about your ability, but only in a limited way.
你完成的工作量可以说明你的能力,不过它的程度很有限。

Besides, comparing two people’s ability simply by the amount of work they do is really not a smart way.
而且,光以工作量的多少来比较两个人的能力,真的是一种低端的比较方式。

Such value is used to judge the assembly line workers in the industrial age, and it is obviously inappropriate to judge today's brain workers.
这种价值观是在工业时代用来评判流水线工人的,现在拿来评判脑力劳动者显然不合适。

If you think about how to do more work every day, your mindset will become increasingly fixed, and your ability to solve open problems will get worse over time.
如果你每天的思考重心都是怎样做出更多的活,你的大脑就会越来越机械化,久而久之你解决开放性问题的能力就会越来越差。

Moreover, this way of working will take up your time when you should be making strategic planning. Instead, you are only trying to become a better-functioning part of a machine, which is definitely not good for your long-term career development.
况且,这样的工作方式会让你无暇做战略性的规划,你只是在努力成为一个更好用的零件,这对你长远的职业发展肯定是不利的。
