Assumption #1: We live in a world where it is impossible to create time. Therefore, I need to spend my discretionary time in the most productive channels possible.
Assumption #2 My definition of 'productive' may be -- and probably is -- significantly different from that of everyone else on the planet.
Assumption #3 My definition of 'productive' is highly influenced by the term 'discretionary' in the same sentence.
Assumption #4 Cool and new things (read: 'shiny') will always grab my attention due to perhaps
Assumption #5 Some of those shiny objects will enhance my productivity.
Assumption #6 Most of them will not.
Assumption #7 Continuing to chase the shiny for the sake of chasing the shiny is -- according to my definition -- not productive.
Assumption #8 It's not like others (CC, Clintus, Chris, et. al.) aren't doing a damn fine job puddle jumping for the masses.
Assumption #9 Not all lists need to contain 10 items
Assumption #10 I receive maximum pleasure during discretionary time when I'm highly productive on Podiobooks.com.
