Too often, success comes at the expense of our health and our most valuable relationships. It’s not often a cost we consciously choose to pay, either – it just happens.
That’s pretty much the story of my early “success”. Productivity was the foundation of that success in the early part of a career where everything was judged by the six-minute unit; I became really good at delivering for my clients and my employer, outworking, outsmarting, and outproducing my peers. I became insanely productive and myopically focused on what I thought would get me to partnership in a top law firm quicker than anyone else. I thought that would benefit my family, but I was not necessarily paying attention to what mattered most.
True productivity isn’t getting more done – it is getting more of what matters most done. It’s doing that without the stress, the overwhelmed feeling, and anxiety that our hyperconnected, always-on, intensely demanding world often provokes in us. And that’s what this audiobook will help you do.
In this audiobook, I explain my three core principles of productivity:
- The power of “No”
- Don’t manage time, manage your energy
- Harness ritual and routine, don’t be a slave to them
And then I give you a set of proven and very practical tools and strategies to implement each one of those principles in your daily life to unlock a more productive you!
