Others find it extremely hard to focus on important tasks first at work and end up putting in several hours more without the results to show for it.

Most people get used to this vicious cycle and eventually give up completely, thinking that they will always be victims of distractions and procrastination. Fortunately, this doesn't have to be the case.

Here's some of what you can expect to learn:

  • Discover how to be more in control of your time and stop procrastination habits and distractions
  • How to create a schedule that will boost productivity and seamleslly integrate with your life
  • Learn at which pace you should advance so that you never feel burnt out or unmotivated
  • Why multitasking doesn't work and what to do instead
  • Avoiding the most common mistakes when changing habits

Believe it or not, even dramatic habitual changes are possible, and we can easily double our productivity while working less. Luckily, changing habits is a skill and one that we can practice and refine, so that we can eventually become really good at. 

Over the long-term, even small efforts can have significant life-altering effects.

There is no better time to take back control in your life. Stop procrastinating and become more productive today!

I really love this audiobook. It’s easy to understand, and an entertaining listen. I also appreciate that it’s more of a reference manual, which contributes to the audiobooks goal of helping me iterate on changing my defaults. I say this audiobook is a must listen for anyone who feels short on time.

This is the perfect audiobook for me!

This is the perfect audiobook for me! More than just a "productivity" audiobook. It gives me a great plan to help me work on things that matter. Rather than just stories and examples, they list tons of tactics.

Just be mindful of it. Like your breath.

What I like about this audiobook even more is that by having so many methods the main point is just that time is something you can be partners with. Don't conquer it, don't fight it. Just be mindful of it. Like your breath.

I highly recommend it.

When put together and put into practice, the ideas in this audiobook can really change the way you see things. At least it has for me. I am less stressed, more productive, way happier and feel like I'm doing the things I want to do. It's been a long time since I felt that way, and I'm happy that I came across this title after listening so many others before it. I highly recommend it.

RECOMMENDED!!!!

This audiobook describes a cascade of tips and tricks on how to make time in your day - how to highlight what is most important, energize and reflect, then repeat for the next day. Will definitely refer back to this.
