There are loads of books you can read on productivity.
I’ve read a few of them.
1) It’s length. It is just over a hundred pages in length, and doesn’t take too long to read.
2) What I think is a brilliant definition of what productivity is. “Productivity is effectively stewarding my gifts, talents, time, energy, and enthusiasm for the good of others and the glory of God.”
3) For the suggestion it gives about structuring your life into different areas of responsibility (e.g. personal, family, work, church, social) and the different roles within these areas. I’ve found this personally really helpful.
4) He is spot on with the 3 essential tools you need to have: a task management tool; a scheduling tool, and an information tool.
5) That he shows how he uses his tools, builds his systems, how he gets stuff done, not so we follow his way slavishly, but to help us do more better. “As time goes on, you will inevitably adopt those tips you find especially helpful and discard the ones you do not. If I can spur your thinking so that you can do more better, I will consider this book a great success.”
Now all that being said, I haven’t completely bought into his system. Not because there is anything wrong with the system, but rather, try as I can, I can’t go totally digital with my tools.
Google Calendar is great!
Evernote is great!
But when it comes to a task management tool, for me it needs to be paper, and for that I have a Bullet Journal.
The bottom line is that whether you are totally digital, totally paper, or a mix of the two, the principles still work. So if you someone who needs to skill up in getting things done or who wants simply to do more better, this book is great starting place.
