The Productivity Project: Accomplishing More by Managing Your Time, Attention, and Energy Read Online Free - A fresh, personal, and entertaining exploration of a topic that concerns all of us: how to be more productive at work and in every facet of our lives.
Chris Bailey turned down lucrative job offers to pursue a lifelong dream—to spend a year performing a deep dive experiment into the pursuit of productivity, a subject he had been enamored with since he was a teenager. After obtaining his business degree, he created a blog to chronicle a year-long series of productivity experiments he conducted on himself, where he also continued his research and interviews with some of the world’s foremost experts, from Charles Duhigg to David Allen. Among the experiments that he tackled: Bailey went several weeks with getting by on little to no sleep; he cut out caffeine and sugar; he lived in total isolation for 10 days; he used his smartphone for just an hour a day for three months; he gained ten pounds of muscle mass; he stretched his work week to 90 hours; a late riser, he got up at 5:30 every morning for three months—all the while monitoring the impact of his experiments on the quality and quantity of his work.
The Productivity Project—and the lessons Chris learned—are the result of that year-long journey. Among the counterintuitive insights Chris Bailey will teach you:
· slowing down to work more deliberately;
· shrinking or eliminating the unimportant;
· the rule of three;
· striving for imperfection;
· scheduling less time for important tasks;
· the 20 second rule to distract yourself from the inevitable distractions;
· and the concept of productive procrastination.
In an eye-opening and thoroughly engaging read, Bailey offers a treasure trove of insights and over 25 best practices that will help you accomplish more.

I have never found an author's personality more revolting than Bailey's. Sure, he has a few good tips here and there, but it didn't make up for the fact that he started writing this book his first year out of college, never having had a full-time, permanent, big-boy job. He's just some rich white...

I would like to re-read this every 6 months until it's burned in my brain. So much good advice. It really got me thinking about a lot of different aspects of my work and life. It's so much more than just making better use of your time.

I read productivity books like other people read the Bible. You've heard it all before. You believe most of it is true. You need constant reminders of why it's true and why it's worth knowing.
Chris Bailey's book is no different. He pulls together some great information about productivity based on...

I couldn't get past his writing and style. I prefer GTD as a productivity book.

It's sad that Goodreads doesn't allow for half-star ratings, and it's ironic that a book about productivity should turn out to be a colossal waste of our time. The author claims to have spent one YEAR trying out and refining the productivity tips and techniques, but I am sorry to report that he s...
