You can be busy without being productive. Your family, boss, clients, computer, cellphone and even your pets vie for your energy and attention. You’ve learned the hard way that most time management programs don’t help. Now, productivity expert Carson Tate offers a system that helps you put an end to inefficient busyness and enables you to develop work strategies that align with your personal “ Productivity Style.” Her 28-question test allows you to diagnose if you are a “Prioritizer, Planner, Arranger or Visualizer.” Learning your productivity type enables you to tailor tools to fit your “cognitive style” and to develop customized systems that boost your productivity. Following this program will help you make sure that you aren’t simply busy – but that you’re productive, as well. getAbstract recommends Tate’s personalized approach to planning, prioritizing and executing to anyone who doesn’t have enough hours in the day.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why traditional time management programs fail,
- Which “Productivity Style” best suits your cognitive tendencies and
- How to tailor your work strategies to align with your productivity style.
