Madeleine Dore, I DIDN'T DO THE THING TODAY: Letting Go of Productivity Guilt


How to release productivity guilt and embrace the hidden values in our daily lives, for anyone who has ever felt the pressure to do more, be more, achieve more, this antidote to our doing-obsession is the permission slip we all need to find our own way.


How to release productivity guilt and embrace the hidden values in our daily lives.


Ever have that kind of day? You know, those days where you add more to your to-do list than you check off; you can’t find your keys or your motivation; and no matter how many bullet journals you buy, you never seem to grasp your full potential.

Writer and Routines & Ruts podcast host Madeleine Dore knows those days all too well. In I DIDN’T DO THE THING TODAY, Dore gives us permission to leave the cult of productivity and embrace the creativity and freedom found in a bulletpoint-free life.



A companion for the days that don’t go as planned, I DIDN’T DO THE THING TODAY offers a reprieve from our productivity obsession, unpacking various ways we encounter productivity guilt—including comparison to others, striving for perfection, and our great expectations—to point to how a day doesn’t have to be optimized, but simply occupied.

Over the past five years, Madeleine has interviewed hundreds of creative people about their daily routines for her popular blog, Extraordinary Routines, and podcast, Routines and Ruts. I DIDN’T DO THE THING TODAY is the culmination of everything Madeleine has learned about how to reframe and at times reject our obsession with output, optimization, and productivity.



In an interview, Madeleine can discuss topics including:

· How the cult of productivity sets us up for failure

· How to build resolutions around delight, not discipline, routine or optimization

· How to be more creative throughout the day, even if you don’t consider yourself to be a creative person

· How to make space for imperfections and to lean into those bad days

· How to replace that long list of New Year’s resolutions and expectations with light intentions

· How to banish productivity guilt and pressure in 2022

· Why not being able to stick to a routine can be something to embrace this year



For anyone who has ever felt the pressure to do more, be more, achieve more, this antidote to our doing-obsession is the permission slip we all need to find our own way.
