Table of Contents

PART 1: Contain & Refrain - This PART is about taking full control of your life—what- ever its current state. We’ll restrain any existing chaos, stress, and disorder while reigniting a sense of passion, purpose, and poise. The goal is to put you at the helm of your ship as you lay the rock-solid foundation necessary to enable all other productivity tips, tools, and systems.

  1. Manage your time fanatically
  2. Only do what matters – And most things don’t matter
  3. Procrastinate strategically
  4. Set and enforce personal policies

PART 2: Ordain & Ingrain – In this PART we’ll dive deeper into the many things that consume your time and attention while exploring highly practical ways to capitalize on the control you gained in Part 1. We’ll ingrain new knee-jerk habits that keep you in the driver’s seat so you can go from where you are to where you want to be with speed and grace.

  1. Become technologically competent and curious
  2. Simplify everything
  3. Handle tasks and projects differently
  4. Timebox everything
  5. Master your email
  6. Own your phone

PART 3: Maintain & Sustain – In this PART we’ll ensure that all of the skills we’ve learned to this point are both upheld and amplified. Without a strategy for ongoing sustenance, peak performance is merely a flash in the pan. Sustainable productivity requires specific habits, lifestyle choices, and uncommon systems... all of which we explore here.

  1. Always seek automation
  2. Delegate and collaborate
  3. Cultivate and ration your energy 14. Design your environment
  4. Schedule non-negotiable time
  5. Conclusion

PART 4 [THIS BOOK]: Retain & Ascertain – In this PART I offer a very comprehensive index of more than 50 powerful productivity tools you can start using today. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without them. These tools will help you retain the new skills learned in this series while simultaneously maximizing your time and effort. As I’ve always said, effort gets you started, but only the right tools, techniques, and skills can spawn extraordi- nary performance and uncommon results.

  1. Comprehensive resource and tool index

 

About

Talent is overrated.

The real difference between those who develop exceptional abilities and lead flourishing lives are those who use their minutes effectively and efficiently. The challenge is, we’re not told how to maximize our time and consequently, most people squander it. In fact, we are often so surrounded by inefficiencies that we eventually accept them as a customary part of our lives, but I assure you, wastefulness and stress is completely avoidable.

When it comes to productivity, our greatest limitation – and opportunity – is our strategy. And that’s where this book comes in. In Be Uncommonly Productive, I share 15 unbreakable, paradigm-bending strategies for slaughtering stress, taking charge, and doing more than commonly possible.

Until the download counter reaches 1,000, I will be giving this book away for free. If you’re serious about getting more from yourself and your life this is your chance.

Why read this?

Why read this?

I wrote this book for one primary reason: to help you do more and enjoy more. But let’s clarify one thing: Productivity should not only be about getting “more done.” The goal is about doing “more” of what is most im- portant (which is admittedly a matter of both practicality and subjectivity).

Regardless, this goal requires a high level of effectiveness and efficiency— and that’s where this book comes in.

I have included many highly practical pieces of advice (including candid, no-holds-barred Q&A subsections) as well as suggestions and links to prod- ucts and services that can will help you do more without cloning yourself, because that’s cost-prohibitive (I checked).

Ineffective habits and systems cost us in more ways than the obvious. Here are some:

  • Starting work earlier and earlier (A sliding scale down a slippery slope)
  • Leaving work later and later (The slippery slope’s matching bookend)
  • Having to decline social opportunities (Hello self-created solitary confinement)
  • Having to decline good business opportunities (It’s difficult to measure this loss)
  • Poor quality performance and results (The curse of the majority)
  • Passing on time with loved ones (I’ll take three relationships on the rocks, please)
  • Passing on personal time such as exercise, leisure activities, etc. (No rest for the wicked) • Passing on strategy sessions (Which ironically encourages what we’d like to avoid)
  • Increased stress and decreased health (R.I.P. fun and creativity)

The solution? Well, there are several... all outlined in this book.
