On a productivity trip…

Given my issues at work, I thought it might be a good idea to seriously look at myself and my problems with organisation, procrastination and general productivity. I am a serial procrastinator and I know I have issues with self-confidence, and procrastinating is good when you’re trying to decide whether or not to buy a new pair of pants, since you’ll (hopefully) avoid wasting money on something that’ll go out of fashion in a month. It’s horrible when you’re starting out at work and trying to make an impact while making sense of a busy schedule.
So I’m trying to figure out a system that works for myself, which won’t fall apart should things go off course every once in awhile. In the meanwhile, scouring through bookstores and Amazon I think the following books are a good place to start to inspire an all-new, all-improved organised and productive self.
  • Organise Yourself – Ronni Eisberg & Kate Kelly
  • The Art of Organising Anything – Rosalie Maggio
  • The 4-Hour Work Week – Timothy Ferriss
  • Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff – Richard Carlson
  • Getting Things Done – David Allen
  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Stephen Covey

I’ll probably borrow before I buy, but insya-Allah I want to hit the ground running when I change offices and not burn out and not fade away, but just chill and get things done.
