My favorite books about productivity


Feeling like you don’t have enough time to fulfill all your tasks during the day is something we all experience once in a while or even more often, depending on how much we live by procrastination.

However, if you constantly feel like there isn’t enough time to finish your duties and balance your work with your personal life, you may have to take a step back and analyze your decisions more carefully. There are certain aspects of our lives, routines that can easily take us out of our productivity zones and into dead times where we neither work nor rest.


In other words, there are two main solutions – you either analyze your daily decisions better and try to develop a better time management plan or you quit some of your activities or daily tasks to make sure you can fit everything in the 24 hours you have.

No matter the case, I suggest that you read some time management books that certainly changed my perspective on time and productivity and, hopefully, will be good for you too.


The Power of Habit

Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Charles Duhigg, I think this book offers the most enlightening experience you could get about the true power of our daily habits. Having a habitual life means a lot of saved time on choices that would, otherwise, consume a lot of our time.

From wardrobe choices to food and beverage choices for each meal, having strict habits might seem boring for most but it’s the most efficient way to maximize your time and channel your energy towards other demanding daily tasks.

The author argues that understanding exactly how habits work for you is the ultimate key to help you with weight loss, increased productivity at work, and achieving success in your business in the long term.


The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

This is another great book about productivity you will definitely want to read as soon as possible. Written by Stephen R. Covey, this book has been successfully used by everyone who wants to increase his productivity. From big CEOs to regular college students or successful businessmen, everyone agrees that this book is one of the best you could find on the market to improve your life right away.

It is full of exclusive advice and testimonials from the most successful people in the world, who already gave up most of the daily time-costing decisions and adopted healthier time-management habits along the way.


How to Stop Procrastinating: A Simple Guide to Mastering Difficult Tasks and Breaking the Procrastination Habit

Written by Steve Scott, this is a great book to improve productivity that teaches you how to finally stop procrastinating. We get that you won’t become 100% efficient in just a few weeks, but you could definitely benefit from professional counseling if you’re 35 and continue to finish tasks the day before the deadline.
