Last year, we spent the summer reviewing the major works of Seth Godin. This book tour covered a dozen or more of his best works and it primarily focused on marketing.
This summer, we will focus on personal productivity and time management.
Since I knew I would be writing about personal productivity, I have begun reading books and watching videos on the subject. Some of what I read is new, but most is classic time-management advice. Here are the perennial favorites:
- Get up early
- Focus on what is important
- Eat well
- Batch tasks
- Do not multitask
- Get 8 hours of quality sleep
- Outsource and delegate
- Keep a to-do list
- Do your most important task first
As I approach this segment, I am well aware that the biggest issues relating to time management and productivity are not issues of ignorance (not knowing), but of abstinence (not doing). So, as we move forward, I will only talk about the advice that I personally tested or concepts that were so game-changing that they altered my behavior in some way.
But this week, I would like you to build your list of time-management and personal productivity hacks. Talk about them in your group. Create the list and send them to me. I will highlight the group with the largest list or the best concepts.
What About You?
