More About The Productivity Project

Inside you’ll find a treasure trove of productivity tactics, like:

  • Consuming caffeine strategically, not habitually.
  • Scheduling less time for important tasks.
  • Slowing down to work more deliberately.
  • Shrinking and eliminating the unimportant.
  • Striving for imperfection.
  • The 20 second rule to distract yourself from the inevitable distractions.
  • The idea of productive procrastination.

I wrote this book to be as helpful and entertaining as possible, and I’m confident you’ll find it just that.

Productivity is how well you manage your time, attention, and energy. The Productivity Project reveals the absolute best ways to manage all three.
