For those with the luxory of being able to work from home during the pandemic, there was a pressure to be productive while spending time at home during lockdowns. Many have felt the need to grow or tackle passion projects during the pandemic and are now pushing back against this notion. To discuss the ways the pandemic has affected our perception of productivity, The 21st was joined by two journalists and a psychology professor.
