Productivity

One of the areas I enjoy working on the most.

Suggested Reading on Productivity

  • Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss – the book that started it all for me; this is where I learned it was ok to work fewer hours as long as you produced results.
  • Deep Work by Cal Newport – hugely important book on the value of dedicated, focused work which has become increasingly rare with the omnipresence of mobile technology.
  • Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy – for a procrastinator like myself, this book was extremely helpful in driving home the point that focusing on the hard things first makes the rest of the day seem easier and more productive.
  • 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey – one of the classic “self-help” books that I put off reading for years because of a stigma I had attached to it. Stupid move. This book introduced or reintroduced concepts like emotional bank accounts, starting with the end in mind and production/production capability balance to name a few.
