"Chris Bailey has been fascinated with the subject of productivity since he was a teenager. While pursuing his business degree in college, he researched every paper and read every book available on the topic. After graduation, he embarked on a year long productivity project, interviewing many of the world's foremost gurus in the field, from Charles Duhigg to David Allen, while conducting a series of productivity experiements on himself, from getting by on little sleep, to waking up at 5:30 every morning for a month, from avoiding caffeine and sugar to working 90 hours a week, and monitoring the impact of each experiment on his productivity. He created a blog at the beginning of the project, with exactly zero followers. But as people heard about his project, and read his blog, his traffic grew exponentially, so that by the end of the year he had over 250,000 unique visitors a month. This book and the lessons and insights Chris discovered is the result of that year long journey. Among the many counterintuitive insights Chris writes about in the book are removing or shrinking the unimportant; the rule of three; striving for imperfection; scheduling less time for important tasks; the 20 second rule to distract yourself from distractions, and the concept of productive procrastination. He offers over 30 best practices that will help every one of us to accomplish more"-- Provided by publisher.
