Overview

This book, then, explores the eight ideas that seem most important in expanding productivity. …Connecting these eight ideas is a powerful underlying principle: Productivity isn’t about working more or sweating harder. It’s not simply a product of spending longer hours at your desk or making bigger sacrifices. …Rather, productivity is about making certain choices in certain ways. The way we choose to see ourselves and frame daily decisions; the stories we tell ourselves, and the easy goals we ignore; the sense of community we build among teammates; the creative cultures we establish as leaders: These are the things that separate the merely busy from the genuinely productive.

This is a book about how to become smarter, faster, and better ateverything you do.

The Five Big Ideas

To motivate yourself, you must believe you have autonomy over your actions and surroundings.

“People who are particularly good at managing their attention are in the habit of telling themselves stories all the time.”

“Experiments have shown that people with SMART goals are more likely to seize on the easiest tasks, to become obsessed with finishing projects, and to freeze on priorities once a goal has been set.”

“Good decision making is contingent on a basic ability to envision what happens next.”

“Innovation becomes more likely when old ideas are mixed in new ways.”
