A productivity book for people who don't have time to read productivity booksSatisfaction:
How we spend our time is one of the greatest indicators of how successful we will be. We achieve our goals when we ruthlessly prioritize tasks and people that are important to us. If we focus our time, energy, and attention on the wrong things, we will never achieve the success or happiness that we aspire to. The problem is that these wrong things, the low value, low impact tasks that distract us from our priorities, are hard to ignore. They scream out at us all day: digital distractions, other people's urgent demand for “five minutes” that's never five minutes, the meetings that you shouldn't be in, the pointless email chains, the reports you write that don't get read. We get a dopamine hit from ticking these tasks off a list. It's got us hooked on crazy busyness. But all we are doing is scratching off a layer of fake work on top of the real, valuable work. The Crazy Busy Cure is full of intensely practical tips to save people from this addiction and become productive again. Jammed with practical productivity solutions to use immediately, it introduces concepts that will help you manage other people's work as well as your own—and that apply to working virtually as well.
