How to Be More Productive: The Ultimate Guide to Productivity

written by Dan Silvestre

I am constantly researching and learning how to be more productive. Ask any of my friends and they will confirm that I am indeed a productivity geek. 😉

And then I read daily about Productivity, Personal Development, Time and Energy Management, Optimization, Professional Growth, Minimalism, and Living a Happy Life…

The passion doesn’t end there: I run a productivity newsletter sharing the most awesome hacks I learn from my research (after testing them myself).

how to be more productive

I get excited talking about how to calculate productivity, or how to organize your fridge or your wardrobe. I can talk for hours about how to optimize your email and the coolest Gmail tricks you should use.

Even though I have a long way to go, I feel I am way more productive than before. Many things have contributed to this: I’ve simplified my life in many areas; I am constantly refocusing on the right things (or at least what I think are the right things); I read more than ever, which helps me expand my thinking; among many others.

So I decided to put down in words many of the lessons that I have learned throughout the years on how to be more productive. As the text grew longer and longer, I kept battling with the idea that maybe this should be a series of posts, all tied together under the idea of “how to be more productive”.

And that’s exactly what happened.

I’ve decided to call it “How to Be More Productive: The Ultimate Guide to Productivity” and it consists of 10 easily digested lessons. Each one is focused on a specific topic and how you can use specific productivity hacks to get more done.

I start from a “macro level” – an overview of your life, if you will – and go more and more into the “micro level” as the lessons progress. I felt this way the natural way of explaining things, but feel free to browse in whichever way works best for you.

Let’s get started.
