What is this article about?

When you’re trying to advance your career, it can sometimes feel like you’re constantly throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks. Updating your resume? Applying for random positions? Poking around aimlessly on LinkedIn? Staring off into the vast career void? Your efforts don’t need to be aimless and you don’t need the stress of taking action just for the sake of it. This is where mindful productivity comes into play, preventing the needless expenditure of energy you could otherwise be using more effectively.

Mindfulness is a newer area of development for me. I found this resource valuable in enabling me to prioritize my time and I felt far more productive when I achieved short term goals more easily. I feel I can move forward with future job/employment prospects more confidently.
