so i have periods of time where I am very productive, and than days where i absolutely do nothing. does this happen to you & why do you think it happens? and how do you deal with it?

right now im talking about a specific experience, the semester just started and ive been averaging about 100 pgs of reading or 3-5 hrs of studying a day & work on the weekends. I'm not looking for pity. I'm just curious how do people deal with the "work, life Balance" paradox.

I spend 17 hours a day awake, living, and breathing, and I'l tell you 3 things.

Work is not a priority, it is a basic factor to pay for your needs.
Life is something you only get once.
Balance is another misconception for equality, you will not- and never will have a basic routine for the rest of your life.
Do not wish for one, lastly- you use the word "paradox" incorrectly.

Paradox is something that sounds reasonable but isn't. Nay.

My reason(s) are:

-Lack of motivation.

-Wanting to do something else.

-Eh? I thought I had more to list... >.<

sometimes I don't know if i'm depressed or just plain lazy. it's hard to tell.



I'm like that character in a fairy tale.. she had to go harvest the fields... but when she got there, started to think, "Should I work or have a little nap first?" she decided to take the nap. then when she woke up, it was night and too dark to see. she went home without anything... and the cycle keeps repeating until the crops started to die off...

I know exactly how that feels. Although, I was actually diagnosed last year.

I've been very, very unproductive for the last two weeks (bad since I have important homework to do). Although, this is likely due to the fact that I am depressed.

Usually, once in a while, I will have an unproductive day or three in a row

I was more productive if I uninstalled games and didn't have internet truthfully.
After not touching a gaming console or PC games I was good.
