“It’s already 5PM and I still have not done anything..”
I often told this to myself at work and sometimes I still do.
There are lots of productivity apps out there and there are also lots of books on how to be productive too.
And I consider myself as a junkie when it comes to consuming all those two tools (apps and books) in helping me to be more productive.
Has it been a success for me on leaning to the productivity tools? Well.. Yes, I might say to a varying degree.
My favorite apps now: way of life and do.it.
Books? I somehow stopped reading the books for a while because I want to focus on reading “Antifragility” by Nassim Taleb. Well, the book can somehow help in pursuing my productive self. But the main reason that I am reading the is that I am following a reading group on that book. I am ‘testing’ whether I can increase my level of reading comprehension by joining the group read. And on top of that we also are trying to find ways to apply the take aways from the book to our real life.
And lately I have new ‘tool’ to keep focus on achieving my goal. An accountability partner. The partner and I meet once a week to follow up on our commitment in chasing my goal.
I can surely attest that the ‘partnership’ is working for me. I followed through my commitment to write a blog this week (yep, this the BLOG).
