You've probably heard this before: "Don't work harder. Work smarter!" This life-coach-approved, Tony Robbins-esque advice is great and all, but how do you actually make it happen?
My name is Matthew Manos. I've launched successful companies, written books, advised hundreds of organizations, earned a Master's degree, and shared my story on stages across the globe. But here's a less glamorous thing about me: after struggling for over a decade to manage my stress, in 2018, I developed a dangerous immunological condition that I am now forced to live with and manage, every single day. The diagnosis was a wake up call that literally changed my life; it forced me to rethink the unhealthy relationship to productivity I had developed as a young entrepreneur.
I wrote Productive Enough to share the mindful productivity and time management tricks I've developed to help myself get more done while also reducing stress. Productive Enough includes 8 exercises, and was written for overwhelmed entrepreneurs, freelancers, and leaders with a lot on their plate. This toolkit starts by helping you better understand your relationship to time and work. Next, you'll develop long and short-term strategies to help you get individual tasks done while also creating the conditions for healthier work in the future. Finally, the toolkit concludes with a series of productivity commitments to increase your accountability.
Part of what this toolkit aims to teach is that productivity is a highly personal topic. Your productivity is different from someone else's productivity. The goal, as the title implies, is to be Productive Enough for you.
