Hi, I'm Corey McComb

It was two years ago when I turned a slow-paced marathon toward mental and emotional burnout into a full-blown sprint. On the outside, things looked better than ever. I was writing regularly and had grown my blog audience and newsletter to over 10,000 monthly readers. But, deep down, I was caught in a riptide of overwhelm and disconnect.

Each day, I’d wake up and compete on the battlefield of productivity and go to sleep on what felt like a bed of hot knives—haunted by the things I didn’t get to, who I may have let down, and the countless ways I was letting myself down.

The problem wasn’t in how much I was trying to do. The problem was that no matter what I did, I was driven by an insidious feeling that I was never doing enough.

Somewhere along the way, I stopped thinking about productivity as the vehicle and made it the goal. I was competing with robots. And as I peeled my tired eyes away from the mechanical life I’d created, I realized I wasn’t alone…

I wrote Productivity Is For Robots because it was the book I needed to read. I researched and internalized the lessons in real-time. Not only to “walk the walk,” but to try and get back to a place where I could wake up in the morning and not wish the day was already over.

Just as these lessons have helped me, I know they can help you.

Whether you’re in a creative rut, burnt out from endless chasing, or trapped in Groundhog Day of mediocrity—know that there is another way. If you’re running a business, raising a family, or trying to make your mark on the world, the principals in this book will help you thrive.

No matter who we are or where we’re at in life, we can all benefit from re-aligning ourselves with what it means to be human in an ever-changing world.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you join me on the journey!
