In this book I combined over 20 fields that I'd categorize to be under the umbrella of productivity. If you master any of these fields, your results in your business, job or school work will improve immediately. The more of these productivity fields you master, the better you will do in whatever you are working on.

Here is the link to the 20 Principles of Productivity book on Amazon.

Some of the topics covered in the book are: motivation, goal setting, stopping procrastination, mindfulness, mobile apps and tools that help with productivity, focus, self-discipline, time management, project planning, organization, task prioritization, dealing with stress and much more.

Excerpt From The Productivity Book

Which Productivity?

Productivity is a very overused term. Each of the following very different aspects of productivity are considered aspects of productivity.


1) Procrastinating and never sitting down to do anything
2) Sitting down to work, getting distracted, and not working
3) Sitting down and working poorly
4) Making you more resourceful at overcoming challenges and roadblocks
5) Getting the right kind of help
6) Working on the right things
7) Team productivity
8) Full business productivity

Productivity is one of those terms for which everyone seems to have their own definition. I wrote this book with the intention to bring all the disparate subfields of productivity under one umbrella. I'll cover these and many additional aspects of productivity later in this book.

I will help you reduce procrastination and strengthen your focus to get you working as effectively as possible for longer periods of time. I’ll also help you choose tasks to work on, and explain how to choose tasks which will be more likely to get you closer to your goals. I'll also help you understand how to tell which life goals are specifically ideal for you.
