The Productivity Project

My book, The Productivity Project,
is now available online, and in bookstores everywhere!
And oh boy, I think you’re going to like it.

This book shares the 25 most powerful productivity tactics I’ve ever encountered—boiled down from the hundreds I’ve experimented with over the last decade—and weaves these together with stories from my (admittedly pretty weird) productivity experiments, as well as interviews with the most renowned productivity experts from around the world, from David Allen to Charles Duhigg. The value packed in these 304 pages is incredible.

But don’t just take my word for it (I did write it, after all). I recently sent off the book to a bunch of cool people, and here’s what just a few of them had to say after reading The Productivity Project:

Chris has written the ultimate guidebook for setting your life on fire. Read it, and you’ll not only get more done, you’ll feel better about it too.     — Laura Vanderkam, author of I Know How She Does It

Here’s a book that promises, in the title, to pay for itself. And, the truth is, it will, in just a few days. And you’ll even enjoy the journey.     — Seth Godin, author of Linchpin

Chris Bailey might be the most productive man you’d ever hope to meet.     — TED Blog

So often we get stuck just doing what we have always done, even if it’s not really working. This book helps you cut through all the productivity advice out there to find and test what really works for you.     — Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage

⁃ “The Productivity Project is well-written, fun, practical and useful all at the same time. I loved this book.     — Marshall Goldsmith, bestselling author of Triggers, MOJO, and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

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. Once you preorder, you’ll get your book on January 5th—the same day The Productivity Project lands in bookstores everywhere.

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