“The Craftsman Approach to Tool Selection: Identify the core factors that determine success and happiness in your professional and personal life. Adopt a tool only if its positive impacts on these factors substantially outweigh its negative impacts.”, Carl Newport in the Deep work.

What do you think of this quote guys?

It’s the other way round for me : I adopt various tools hoping they’ll help me “ Identify the core factors that determine success and happiness in my professional and personal life”

I think that’s true for anyone who wants to effect change in their lives. If you can’t quite get a handle on that, you pour your energy into the abstracted process as represented by software, hoping to work your way BACK to the core issue.
