Overview

We often find it difficult to step back from our daily routines and examine our behavior. This stops us from accomplishing important things that add value and bring rewards. In order to overcome this problem, we need to get a better understanding of what is important and what distracts us.

Chris Bailey had two job offers when he left university. He turned them both down to spend a year studying productivity. The subject is his passion in life and he shares his insights with others, to help them live a more productive life. He has also written a book on the subject, The Productivity Project, which looks at the studies he completed.

In The Productive Life, Bailey shows us how to optimize our time usage and understand our energy levels. He also examines how important dealing with distractions is for productivity. The aim of the course is to show us how to accomplish what is important to us without experiencing burnout.

Favorite Quote

"Productivity. It's kind of a misleading term because it has the word production in it but it's not about how much we produce. We could produce email all day long and not accomplish a single thing. It's very much how much we accomplish."
