You do not need to be constantly productive - just consistently effective.
I create, every morning, 3 MITs (Most Important Tasks) - these 3 tasks are the ones where if all I do today is get these 3 items done, then it was a decent day. If a get more, its definitely better. But just 3 MITs for a successful day, and I focus on each one at a time, no multi tasking.
So true -- being effective is much more important than being productive. There's no point being productive if you're producing the wrong thing.
