The Productivity Project – Chris Bailey

Here are my favorite quotes from the book The Productivity Project by Chris Bailey.

Make a list of all the things you’re responsible at your work. Then, ask yourself which is the most important item on that list and go do it.

At the end of every day decide which three tasks you want to accomplish by the end of the next day.

Manage your energy, not time.

Write and send a letter to yourself in the future.

Limit your time for a certain task to half of what you thought it’s going to take and see how it goes.

Don’t sort emails in folders – search for them.

Alcohol has a significant impact on your energy levels and productivity.

The brain can’t tell much difference between visualization and actual experience. Therefore, at the end of the day recall the positive and meaningful parts of your day – that way you double the significant experiences of your day.

77% of what we think is negative, counterproductive, and works against us. Therefore, force yourself to feed your brain with positive thoughts.

I’ve learned most from the meditation experiment where I lived in isolation for 10 days and meditated for 35+ hours.

Busyness is no different from laziness when it doesn’t lead you to accomplish anything.

You’re 7 times as likely to be highly engaged at work if If your best friend works at the same place.

The best attitude to have with productivity is never to be satisfied but to find ways to cultivate happiness continually.

Please stop multitasking 🙂
