Free to Focus book by Michael Hyatt is a complete productivity game changer.
Michael Hyatt’s Free to Focus Productivity system is one of the most complete and doable systems I have come across. Everyone gets 168 hours a week and yet for some, it never feels like enough. Work tends to take up the largest share of that time. Most people think productivity is about finding or saving time so that you can cram more into that time. But it’s not! It’s about making our time work for us so that we can free up some time and do what we want to do.
In Michael’s book Free to Focus he reveals to readers nine proven ways to win at work. We are finally free to succeed in the rest of life —our health, relationships, hobbies, and more. He helps readers redefine for themselves their:
- Evaluate what’s working
- Cut out the non-essential
- Focus on the most important tasks
- Manage time and energy
And build momentum for a lifetime of success.
The Free to Focus system is based on 3 basic steps (stop, cut, act), each step, then, consists of 3 mutually supportive actions Stop = formulate, evaluate, rejuvenate = 7 productive life-sustaining practices, Cut = calendar (triage), automate, delegate, Act = consolidates, designate, activate. When adopting these strategies a self-perpetuating system emerges that, even under unfavorable circumstances (passing through different stages of life, etc.), helps you to fulfill your life mission.
While the process Michael gives for Free to Focus Productivity, is outstanding, he does not just stop there. He also gives us resources in the book, as well as on his website, that will walk you through how to accomplish each one of these steps.
If you are looking to take control of your life and improve your productivity, I highly recommend this book to you.
The dollar value of lost productivity does matter, but it’s not what really hurts. The true cost comes from all the dreams left unexplored, the talents left untried, the goals left not pursued. Michael spends some time-sharing another tool to help us figure where each task that we do will fall in our energy areas of like to dislike and draining. The more we stay in our high energy and like area the more productivity we will get to experience. More of our personal dreams being accomplished will be the true result.
Some of my own internal post already on this site that you may want to look into that will compliment this book would also be:
