    1. This book envelopes many great ideas that have proven to make you more productive and are results of one year engagement with numerous experiments from the author. If you value efficiency, meaning, control, discipline, growth, freedom, learning, and knowledge, this is the book for you.What's so cool and inspiring about this book is that Chriss Bailey the author takes a year off to try and test a wide spectrum of ideas and observe how they affect his productivity and that's actually what makes th [...]

    2. I have never found an author's personality more revolting than Bailey's. Sure, he has a few good tips here and there, but it didn't make up for the fact that he started writing this book his first year out of college, never having had a full-time, permanent, big-boy job. He's just some rich white asshole who had enough money to tour Europe and take a year off from working to do nothing but write a book and some blog posts. Of course he's productive, it's easy to be productive when nothing bad ev [...]

    3. I would like to re-read this every 6 months until it's burned in my brain. So much good advice. It really got me thinking about a lot of different aspects of my work and life. It's so much more than just making better use of your time.

    4. I read productivity books like other people read the Bible. You've heard it all before. You believe most of it is true. You need constant reminders of why it's true and why it's worth knowing.Chris Bailey's book is no different. He pulls together some great information about productivity based on his year-long project, much of which, are things I have read before (Getting Things Done) and many things I have suspected to be true (multi-tasking is bad and meditation is good).I am fortunate enough [...]

    5. كريس قرر أن يخصص سنة من حياته ليدرس فيها الإنتاجية، حيث سيقوم بعمل مقابلات ، قراءة ودراسة كل ما يتعلق بالموضوع سواء كتب او اوراق بحثية واخيرا تجربة كل ما يمكن أن يزيد من إنتاجيته والكتابه عنه.الجميل في الموضوع، ان موضوع الإنتاجية هو شغفه، وقرر أن يترك فرصتين عمل يمكن ان نقول [...]

    6. I liked it, but it could be with less number of pages!Thank you Chris, nice book and good experience :)

    7. It's sad that doesn't allow for half-star ratings, and it's ironic that a book about productivity should turn out to be a colossal waste of our time. The author claims to have spent one YEAR trying out and refining the productivity tips and techniques, but I am sorry to report that he shouldn't have bothered. The few worthwhile pointers the book contains are either covered in other books in much better detail (Getting Things Done by David Allen, for example) or are really common sense (meditate [...]

    8. I just returned my first ever Audible audiobook: The Productivity Project by Chris Bailey. It's pretty much a handful of basic tips everyone knows (stop watching so much TV, stop using the internet so much) and fluff. If you want the equivalent of this book, just google "best ways to be productive" and read for 20 minutes. The claim is that he spent a year "researching productivity full time." What he really did was decide not to get a job, read articles online about being productive, and blog a [...]

    9. All very informative and many good tips and many stats, if you're into those as well. The author does lose some credibility when going through his "typical" day which is perfectly planned and productive and does not involve one other person besides himself. So, yeah, probably not the read for a busy mom juggling career, household, kids, husband, meetings, and the forever-arising pop-up crisis. I'm still waiting for the treatise on how to be productive when your life is one unexpected demand afte [...]

    10. The productivity and time management genre has long been one of the most popular fields in business books. Bailey’s contribution is notable for his strong research, experimental approach and helpful exercises. In this review, I will discuss various aspects of the book that I found helpful and interesting.The Three Productivity Factors: Time, Attention and EnergyIn the modern knowledge economy, there are three key personal factors that drive productivity. Bailey explains that time, attention an [...]

    11. DNF - 2 starsI read about 100 pages of this book (roughly 30%) before I realized that–yes, while there were some good productivity tips included–I had to wade through pages and pages of information to find them.If you're a person who is obsessed with productivity–not just the act of becoming productive, but the science and history and sociology behind it–this is the book for you. Have fun reading about the brain, about the beginning of time, about the industrial revolution and time zones [...]

    12. This is one of those rare books that I think everyone can gain something really practical from. Chris' writing style keeps you engaged and enjoying every turn of the page. He has a very interesting perspective on productivity that will make you feel totally psyched about trying all the tactics he outlines in his book. I'm not usually into reading books about "productivity", but this didn't feel like one - the writing style is so fun and anything but stuffy, but you still get so many useful insig [...]

    13. To be honest, I do not see the need in reading self-help books. Most of the knowledge is, to me, at least, common sense. Content-wise - I would give this book 1/5 stars. In terms of enjoyment, I would give it 3.5/5 stars. If you need help with becoming more productive (and you refuse to use common sense), I think this might be the book for you.

    14. Funny, insightful, and honest, Bailey tries out all the methods for increasing productivity and reports back on what works so that we don't have to go through the trial and error process. He breaks things down in manageable chunks for activities to try, and even gently compromises with readers who are resistant to some of the activities (aka me). Most commendably, he puts value to mindfulness and encourages us to reflect and think about the deeper reasons behind wanting to be productive beyond r [...]

    15. Dropped it after getting main points. Everything is much simpler, in my opinion. I've just finished one year of working and learning 12-hour days, each day, no weekends, except several days off. Don't go into what I've done to not sound pathetic, but it's way way more than entire companies are doing in months, so such book is, meh, knows really nothing how to keep productivity and motivation easily. Meditation and yoga, funny, magic thinking, haha Anyway, not saying it hasn't good points, like 3 [...]

    16. I am not a fan of self-books as most of them are just marketing gimmicks. Fortunately, this one doesn't come under those!Loved this book!If you want to read a book on productivity, look no further! The part I loved is the author's honesty! Unlike most self-claimed motivational authors, he isn't trying to sell you dreams or asking you to follow his routines etc, He presented a very crystal approach to various methods you can use for better productivity.

    17. I like this book and I already feel powered up up to action reading this far and I am still at p. 11. I admire a lot what he had to say about the role of meditation in his productivity in the business world. This is, indeed, a gem of a book to read over and over again and get challenged with goals to plan and a sense of vision.

    18. On the good side, it is a fairly comprehensive review of many aspects of living 'productive' life - sleep, clean eating, exercises, mindfulness, offloading stuff from your head, etc. If I was looking for a one book to recommend that covers most of the important subjects, I may pick it. Not saying, it's the best for this purpose, but it will do the trick. On the bad side I'm tired of books targeting neophytes. Yes, I understand that there are substantially more people, who are just starting to ch [...]

    19. The Productivity Project by Chris Bailey is both a survey of modern productivity tips and strategies as well as the author's experience as a guinea pig in a year long productivity experiment. Maximizing your personal productivity is highly important in the knowledge economy as your value to both your customers and clients emerges from your ability to deliver results rather than to punch a clock. The Productivity Project's answer to whether or not you can increase the amount of work you perform e [...]

    20. Click here to read the full ReviewThe Productivity Project is a collection of the most valuable lessons Chris learnt during his one year of productivity experiments.He talks about a LOT of aspects that affect our productivity. He also gives solutions and tips on how we can be more productive.The best thing about this book is that Chris tested those experiments himself, so he definitely knows what he’s talking about.In this book, time management isn’t the best way to track your productivity. [...]

    21. Thank you Chris for investing a full year of your time and energy to do this crazy project! Needless to say, this is one of the books that I found extremely useful and will be held close to me years from now. I am really amazed by Chris’ determination to complete this project, especially after reading the last Chapter of the book where he mentioned that he did fell down the steep, slick cobblestone sidewalk, got warded and required him 6 months to get fully recovered. Had this something that h [...]

    22. Ahh, a book from a fellow Canadian.Chris Bailey is pretty young for writing a book like this - most people in the field of productivity and personal development are 40+ with really specific business training. But he's more of a layperson, which is part of this book's charm. He's just a regular guy who's passionate about productivity, and takes an experimental approach to it.In this book, he talks about what works (exercise, meditation, etc) and what didn't (early rising, etc), and the science to [...]

    23. Lots of good stuff here, especially for those looking for ways to do more with less. My biggest takeaway from this is that productivity is less about ticking off a to-do list and more about taking a long, hard look at what you actually accomplished at the end of the day. Bailey talks about how time, attention, and energy are the key factors here. Being aware and mindful of all three allows you to be more strategic. For example, you could choose to work longer hours to finish up a project, but al [...]

    24. На свой главный вопрос - "Как работать продуктивно и следовать своим приоритетам" - я получила ответ. Книга немного занудная, но стоит того, чтобы ее изучить и внедрить. Чем и хочу заняться. Много полезных навыков, которые так и просятся в мою жизнь ))
