When I graduated University, I received two full-time job offers, but decided to decline them both to dedicate a full year of my life to exploring my weird passion: productivity. For a full year I did anything and everything to become more productive. That included conducting dozens of productivity experiments on myself, like living in total isolation for 10 days, only using my smartphone for an hour a day, waking up at 5:30am every morning, and working 90-hour weeks. Today, I'm on a mission to share the lessons of my year-long journey both in my book, The Productivity Project, and in my lectures, where I offer insights and best practices that help everyone from college students to CEOs accomplish more.
