Why did I write this book about Productivity?
This productivity book is directed to those people who want to get the best results with the minimum efforts. That is, they want to achieve the best possible results with the minimum expenditure of energy. The goal is to get the best performance out of you and out of your business, since both are interrelated.
The results you are going to get by reading this productivity book are:
•How to learn to dream big
•Which are the key elements of peak performance
•What is you modus operandi
•What is your learning style
•How to focus on deliberate practice
•How to find time to relax
Before start reading, think of what it would mean for you to be able to get the best results with the minimum efforts. Would you be able to save more time? What would you do with that extra time? Would you use it to work more on those projects and activities that are part of your unique ability? Would you use it to rest and dedicate more time to your hobbies? What impact would it have in yourself being able to achieve this? What impact would it have in your lifestyle? In your relationships?
If, after having answered all of these questions, you are still interested, congratulations! You are taking the first step to change. And remember, as Dan Sullivan says, ¨all progress starts by telling the truth¨. If you want to read this book is because you think there is a possibility to improve your productivity skills. Once you recognize this, you can keep going on, and read, and applying this book.
