It seems like the 3 keys to productivity and eventual success are: stay organized, own a early morning routine, and read daily. There are obviously many others but these 3 seem to recur the most. I don’t excel in any of these 3 areas, nor had much success in forming these habits. I’ve chosen organization as the first to tackle.
I’ve tried many apps, notebooks, and such tools, but as one of the HBR article says, productivity tools are useless without productivity skills. I’m on a long journey to finding my way to staying on top of it all.
