Save time and money: get the principles of great productivity books for one tenth of the price!

In this booklet I've condensed the information I've been collecting for the last 3 years of my life. I've been reading books about productivity, blogs about procrastination and articles about psychology in order to fix my problems with motivation and productivity. I have come to the point in which I can say I've won that battle. And now, I share my knowledge with you!

I've read Getting things done by David Allen, Checklist by Atul Gawande, Thinking fast and slow by Daniel Kahneman and many more great books. I've tried to understand what goes on in our mind when we procrastinate, what makes us want to make bad long term choices and what motivates us. I've applied their principles and I've tested them in a wide variety of situations. I've extracted what works and what doesn't, what deserved to become a part of my routine and what did not. I can say I know the best aspects of each book and the best methods there are around to increase productivity and save a lot of time by wasting a lot less.

And if you get this book, you will get to know these things, too!

Learn about productivity tricks you'll apply for the rest of your life!

This is a 4000 words worth book of condensed productivity tips. I've made it short because I know, people don't have time to go through pages and pages of books they will find, in the end, difficult to apply in real life. I've made it short and effective - I know that. I know that because I use the principles stated in here all day, every day. Learn how to help yourself start new habits, stop bad ones, gain more control and stop wasting time on useless things.

I've written this book because I wanted to share how I finally get that sensation every day: the feeling that I have used my whole day productively, and that I can rest for the rest of the evening with peace in my mind. I haven't written about why stuff works. I've written about what makes stuff work. And better, I've written about how you can tell, too, how to make your stuff work.

Powerful principles

This book introduces you to a great framework for productivity and getting things done. After all my research, I've come to a conclusion. Everything I have ever read about productivity, motivation and habits just comes down to a principle - the Friction Principle. Applying it is very simple, and you'll experience the benefits almost immediately: you'll start seeing things from a whole new perspective.

The powerful aspect of the Friction Principle is that you aren't supposed to follow a set of predefined rules: you just know how to see things in a new way. And you'll just get how to make things better in an effective, new way. There is no definitive method, we all know that, but a change of perspective and a set of tricks and tools you can use everyday will definitively help.

A great reference

Even after you've read all those productivity books, what does, really, stick with you after a couple months? Not much. You need to review them. Re-read them. And that takes time. Not with this reference: this book gets the message across immediately, and is so packed with tricks that you will learn more than you intended to when first opening it. Guaranteed.
