Productivity. A nice sounding word that we all throw around a lot, but what does it really mean? Can we really hack our daily routine to become productivity machines? I know I wish I was more productive in my work, so I could have more time to try to volunteer and Do Good!
When Chris Bailey graduated with his business degree he had two great job offers...so he took neither. No, Chris knew he had to become a productivity monster before he could even think of entering the workforce. So Chris took one entire year, May 1, 2013 - May 1, 2014 to learn absolutely everything about being more productive -
Over the last 12 months I have conducted countless productivity experiments on myself, interviewed some of the most productive people in the world, and read a ton of books and academic literature on productivity, all to explore how I could become as productive as possible, and then write about the lessons I learned.
One year, 197 articles, and over one million hits later, I’ve reached the end of my year-long journey, but not before going out with a bang.
All along the way he fully documented his productivity. Well, now that the year is over, we can all learn from Chris with his list of the Top 10 Lessons from a Year of Productivity.
No matter what your passion is, if you want to Do Good and Feel Good, being productive is key. You could take the next year off and invest over 2,400 hours in learning everything about productivity...or, you could just check out A Year of Productivity and save yourself about 2,399 hours.
