Eat That Frog, a book reccomendation on productivity from the author of the post on Quora
Digging around the productivity sections on Quora, I came across this great question, “As a startup CEO what is your favorite productivity hack?”
What was even better, was the answer. Matt DeCelles, a self described serial entrepreneur and consultant, gave a two-step answer that involved prioritization and execution. He talks about getting your house in order by taking a look at everything from 30,000 feet, and then organizing everything in a ‘what’s first?’ manner.
He also talks about how delegation is a huge part of productivity. Because if you’re working on tasks you hate doing, there is a good chance it’s slowing you (and your entire company) down a good amount. Find and build teams to do the little things, so that you can execute the big-picture items that solve real problems.
Matt showcases a lot of different sites and platforms that help him do this, and hopefully one day Tracky will be a part of that mix.
Later, Matt discusses managing distractions and habits that help him get things accomplished. Everything from blocking sites like Facebook or Twitter, to silencing your phone and computer from annoying alerts.
Matt shares a lot of options. And while I won’t take all of them to heart, it’s a great place to start getting organized—and better yet, productive.
