Productivity Gurus, please stop

One fine day I woke up to this, now don’t get me wrong I don’t follow this prick (but thanks to Twitter recommendation). This dude is a podcaster (Yes, that’s his occupation)

Now here’s my contrary opinion – All those listicles you see on “5 things to keep you productive today” click baits, out of which Waking up at 5 AM, remains at the top one (on almost all the productivity blogs). – That shit doesn’t work, “It gives the false pleasure of achieving something, without actually accomplishing anything.

Now watch this video titled “Self-Help” Is nonsense.

But why is self-help so popular? Here’s why It is an Industry estimated at 11.6B$ and is expected to grow by USD 43.77 billion (Now you see why you see these ads and influencers getting into this segment. because its sells.

Always remember these people do more harm than good. What saddens me is that people fall for these baits and India is currently booming with such creators as Beer Biceps, Ankur Warikoo, Raj & many more (I just blocked these guys everywhere possible), and all the gyaan these guys keep giving about investment & stocks advice (without no valid research). They bait followers from free videos on youtube and bait users to buy their courses (I’m not against buying courses but what Im concerned about is that the shit show these pricks sell).

As much as I love technology and progress in these domains, I don’t really get all these big brother advice-type content creators. I mean imagine a decade ago There was no concept of influencer culture, nor did people feel the need to form an opinion on anything and make it public.

Wannabe influencers sell “Time management” courses by running a 20 sec Ad and wasting users’ time. Bro, don’t you think it defeats the purpose? You already wasted 20 seconds of my life.
