How to Increase Your Productivity by 500%


It is true. It is not easy. And may be the author exaggerates  a little.

Found at How to Increas e Your Productivity by 500%.

I have heard some of these tips over and over again. I dismissed them and never used them because I thought they were nonsense.

You see, we have all these tips around us that can dramatically increase our productivity, but we fail to incorporate them into our life.

Oh, how wrong I was! Read more at

Blogging Innovation » What Works about Rework.

y Kevin Roberts

What Works about ReworkBooks on business strategy are usually packed with vague abstractions and useless buzzwords. That’s why I enjoyed Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson’s book Rework so much. It’s a no-nonsense collection of business wisdom from the two founders of 37signals, a wildly successful software company. Like any provocative book, I found plenty to disagree with, but I also found a lot of smart advice.

For instance, Fried and Heinemeier Hannson advise business leaders to “Ignore the Real World.” This is their reply to all those pessimists who insist that a new idea could never work in the “real world.” The authors get it exactly right when they explain that “the real world isn’t a place; it’s an excuse. It’s a justification for not trying.”
